Zen Pinball and Its Merry Marvel Tables are Marching to the Wii U eShopS

Zen Studios' hugely successful pinball simulation lands on its third console, the Wii U, later this month via the Wii U eShop. The game will incorporate features specific to the Wii U's GamePad, which includes controlling the plunger on the touchscreen, cycling through information displayed on the table's dot-matrix readout, rotating camera views and a free view control implemented by tilting the pad.

More importantly, Zen's licensed Marvel Comics tables will be available in addition to Zen's original library comprising favorites like Excalibur, Mars and Epic Quest. A news release mentioned all Marvel-themed tables except the recently released Civil War.

The platform itself is free to download, offering tables to try and purchase from there. Zen's original Marvel Pinball series (Spider-Man, Wolverine, Blade and Iron Man) will be offered as a group, as will the Avengers Chronicles table set and Vengeance and Virtue from 2011.

A Zen "classic pack" Tesla, El Dorado, V12 and Shaman wil be available, too. The following will be offered a la carte: Plants vs. Zombies, Excalibur, Earth Defense, Sorcerer's Lair, Paranormal, Mars, Epic Quest, Captain America and Fantastic Four.
