See Star Wars Pinball's 'Return of the Jedi' table in action

Star Wars Pinball fans can catch a glimpse of the upcoming Return of the Jedi table in a trailer released today by developer Zen Studios. The table features objects inspired by the 1983 film, including an AT-ST and a hologram of the Death Star II, and it takes place in the forest on Endor. Missions played on the table are based on scenes from the movie, such as the lightsaber duel between Luke Skywalker and (spoiler alert!) his father, Darth Vader. The Return of the Jedi table is part of Zen's Balance of the Force pack, which will function as an add-on for Star Wars Pinball as well as the studio's existing pinball platforms, Zen Pinball and Pinball FX.

Star Wars Pinball's Empire Strikes Back table showcased in new trailer

Star Wars Pinball, the upcoming batch of downloadable content and standalone games from Zen Studios, features a table based on what most folks would argue to be the best film in the franchise: The Empire Strikes Back. That table is showcased in a new trailer released today, posted above. Its players will need to keep their wits about them to keep the pinball on the board — the Empire Strikes Back table has a ton of moving parts and interactive scenes ripped straight from Episode 5. Two more tables, based on Boba Fett and The Clone Wars, are included in the pack, but have yet to be detailed. Star Wars Pinball launches later this month, and will be a standalone app on iOS and Android. It will also be sold as DLC for Zen Pinball 2 and Pinball FX2 on all appropriate platforms.

Bound for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, Mac, Android and iOS, Star Wars Pinball taps deeply into Star Wars nostalgia with an initial trio of tables based on one film, one iconic bad guy and the animated Clone Wars series.

The playfield is wide open, with ramps, loops and lanes pushed to the far end of the table. The action moves at a moderate pace, perhaps the ideal Star Wars machine for those new to Zen's brand of virtual pinball. On The Empire Strikes Back...
