'Pinball FX3' (ALL) Gets Delayed On Nintendo Switch

by Rainier on Nov. 13, 2017 @ 1:07 p.m. PST

Designed to bring the community together like never before, Pinball FX3 is built around multiplayer match-ups and competitive tournament play.

Zen Studios also placed a strong focus on helping players become more competitive, and have designed new single-player modes featuring special challenges that will help players develop their skills as they connect with the Pinball FX3 community.

Since 2007, Zen Studios has set the standard for video game pinball. The Pinball FX series balances authentic physics and gameplay mechanics with features that fully embrace the unlimited potential of video games, such as spectacular visual sequences and unparalleled competitive features. Just like traditional pinball, table subject matter includes everything from original takes on themes like sci-fi and fantasy to some of pop culture’s most iconic brands, such as Back to the Future, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Aliens, The Walking Dead and more.

Originally scheduled for release on Switch starting Tuesday, November 14, 2017, Zen Studios informed us that Pinball FX3 is being pushed until somewhere in Dec. 2017.

A more specific date will be revealed later on.

Key Features:

  • Now every table is an RPG. Simply playing a table yields experience points and level advancements that continually unlock the potential for bigger points…and bigger blowouts of your friends’ scores on the leaderboards. Strategic thinking comes into play when determining which power-ups to equip—one table might be best suited for a Skillshot Score Increase and Multiball Score Bonus, while another might better benefit from Combo Time Bonus and Distance Bonus team-up.   
  • Players level up. The more you play, the higher your own personal experience level increases.
  • Anyone can start their own tournament. In addition to tournaments run by Zen (often involving fantastic prizes), Pinball FX3 allows players to create and customize their own tournaments, including access to several modes of play.  
  • Advanced multiplayer features allow for intelligent matching against others based on skill level. This applies to everything from immediate friendly matches to ultracompetitive League Play.
  • Cross-play enables Nintendo Switch players to take on opponents competing on most other platforms where Pinball FX3 is available.
  • New game modes will change the way you play even tables you feel you’ve already mastered. Playing a 1-Ball Challenge, a 5-Minute Challenge or Survival Mode will cause you to completely rethink your approach in order to top the leaderboards.

Pinball FX3 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and will be coming to Nintendo Switch on November 14, 2017.
