'Star Wars Rebels' Releases On 'Zen Pinball' Platforms This Week With New Modes, Characters, & More [VIDEO]
The galaxy far, far away comes to the grandest stage of all: pinball. That's right, Star Wars is joining "Forces" with Zen Pinball to bring you a whole new addition to the enduring multi-platform title.
The cast from the animated show Star Wars Rebels arrives as part of the 11th major Star Wars table update to Zen Pinball 2. Players will team up with the crew of the starship Ghost, including Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Zeb Orrelios, Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla and the grumpy astromech Droid Chopper as they join forces to take on the evil Empire.
The Rebels inspired table will feature fully-animated starships including the Ghost and TIE fighters, a flaming engine thruster spindisk, Chopper's own mini playfield, and seven exciting missions inspired by the show.
It's a long wait until Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels - in fact, there's no set release date at all - but we do know that the show will be longer than the debut, and will also feature Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, as a new character.
For newcomers, the show is set approximately five years before the events of Episode IV in which the rebellion is getting its initial footing while the Empire seeks to hunt down any Jedi who were not destroyed when Order 66 was set down by soon-to-be Emperor Palpatine.
Star Wars Pinball: Star Wars Rebels is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Steam, Mac, iOS, Android and Amazon. There are staggered releases, with some versions available today, but all should be out come Thursday, April 30.
