BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — FarSight Studios, a videogame development company headquartered in Big Bear Lake California, announced today that their new game The Pinball Arcade™ will be released February 9th for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
The Pinball Arcade is the most accurate and realistic pinball videogame ever created. Building on FarSight’s critically acclaimed pinball franchise, The Pinball Arcade features licensed pinball tables from Bally®, Williams®, Gottlieb® and Stern®, and includes the most popular historical and modern tables of all time. Four tables will be available at launch: Tales of the Arabian Nights®, Ripley’s Believe It or Not®, Theatre of Magic®, and Black Hole™.
FarSight will feature the Ripley’s Believe it or Not® pinball table in the initial launch. “We are thrilled to expand and build upon the Ripley’s Believe it or Not® franchise as it gives our fans another enjoyable way to experience this exciting brand and help solidify Ripley’s commitment to family entertainment,” said Bill Daley, Director of Online Marketing and New Media from Ripley Entertainment. “FarSight has done an amazing job recreating this popular, but incredibly complex table, in meticulous detail. With more than 500 pages of rules, this was no easy feat!”
Each month two new pinball tables will be added to the lineup and players will be able to sample free versions of each release (including the launch tables). Paid versions of each table will be available individually or in “themed” packs which will be released over the next several years as downloadable content. “With the licenses we’re acquiring, we’ll be able to re-create nearly all of the highest-ranked tables in pinball history. Our goal is to make The Pinball Arcade the definitive pinball game franchise of all time!” said Bobby King, FarSight’s Director of Development and Lead Designer of The Pinball Arcade.
