Zen Studios' take on The Empire Strikes Back

As someone who has wanted to get into Zen Studios' brand of pinball but has somehow managed to not pull the trigger yet, it was great to hear about Star Wars Pinball. This latest trailer shows of the table based on The Empire Strikes Back, which you can't not love; the sights and sounds are too full of nostalgia to resist.

This specific table is merely the first of many planned for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC, iOS, and Google Play. It's got five missions, which will feature checkpoints in the event of a ball drain or other mishaps. Zen says that we'll hear more about the Boba Fett table next week. I'm pumped, despite not being that big of a Star Wars fan. This is just cool to see come to fruition.
