    Star Wars Pinball VR Coming
    The eight table collection will feature new and classic remastered
    content, and a few surprises.

    Soon, fans will have a whole new way to play - and experience -
    Star Wars Pinball.

    Zen Studios announced today that its long-running Star Wars Pinball
    is coming to virtual reality for the first time ever. Star Wars
    Pinball VR will arrive on Oculus Quest 1 & 2, Steam VR, and
    PlayStation VR on April 29 - just in time for May the 4th, the Star
    Wars fan holiday.

    Star Wars Pinball VR is set to launch with eight tables: the
    brand-new The Mandalorian and Star Wars Classic Collectibles tables,
    along with six remastered favorites, including Star Wars: A New
    Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the
    Jedi, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Rebels, and Masters of
    the Force.

    Star Wars Pinball VR will also feature some special modifications
    that take full advantage of the virtual reality experience. All of
    the action occurs in a fully customizable "fan cave," which houses
    your in-game pinball table as well as many Star Wars helmets,
    lightsabers, and other items earned through successful play. Turn on
    the pinball table and the room comes to life - not only with a new
    table to play, but also with life-sized characters and vehicles
    joining you on either side. Meanwhile, Total Immersion mode allows
    you to experience everything at table level, and fully 360-degree
    minigames surround you with iconic Star Wars set pieces.

    The game was revealed on The Pinball Show - Zen Studios' new monthly
    YouTube show - in a clever video that pays tribute to the classic
    trailer for the Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition.
