Pinball Hall of Fame series developer FarSight Studios announced the upcoming release of Pinball Arcade, a downloadable pinball compilation featuring classic tables from Bally, Midway, Stern, and Gottlieb.
Similar to the release strategy adopted by Zen Studios for its Pinball FX series, FarSight's compilation will be supported by a large slate of downloadable content. The developer plans to launch two new tables every month, with over 50 titles scheduled for future release.
While Pinball Arcade will include a number of Gottlieb and Williams tables previously seen in FarSight's Pinball Hall of Fame games, the upcoming collection will also feature officially licensed tables from Bally and Stern. FarSight notes that the first four tables set for release include Ripley's Believe It or Not! (Stern), Theatre of Magic (Bally), Black Hole (Gottlieb), and Tales of the Arabian Nights (Midway), with Bally's Cirqus Voltaire planned as one of the first DLC titles.
Pinball Arcade will be released for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, PSVita, Nintendo 3DS, PC, Mac, and Android and iOS platforms in early 2012.
