By now, Zen Studios is well-known for their digital pinball tables, many of which are based on popular cross-media franchises like Star Wars and Marvel. Previously, they've even dipped their toes into other series within gaming itself, building tables based on Street Fighter 2, Plants vs. Zombies and The Walking Dead: The Game. Now, Zen is setting its sights on one of gaming's most revered modern properties: Valve Software's Portal.

We recently got to go hands-on with the Portal table, which is heavily influenced both the original game and Portal 2. In the video above, we go over what the Portal board gets right, how it was made, and how it compares to Zen's past gaming-based tables.

The Portal table comes to Zen Pinball 2 and Pinball FX2 later this month for $2.99 on consoles and PC, and $1.99 on mobile platforms.
