09/10/2013 - Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force Coming Soon
10:43 pm pdt
Feel the disturbance
in the Force with Three Brand New Star WarsTM Pinball Tables
Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force Coming Soon for Download
Los Angeles, CA – September 10, 2013 – The pinball wizards at Zen Studios are pleased to announce
Star Wars™ Pinball: Balance of the Force. The pack features three new tables in the critically acclaimed pinball
series that immerses players in the Star Wars™ universe. The tables will be available for download on digital
stores later this fall.
An announcement trailer and screenshots were released for the new pinball pack, which can
be linked from the Zen Studios YouTube channel.
"The ancient Jedi prophecy foretold one who would
bring balance to the Force. They probably didn't imagine that balance would come in the form of two huge, equally matched
armadas engaged in desperate battle above Endor, or in the form of a rogue Jedi nearly eliminating his own order and then,
much later, his Sith master,” said Neil Sorens, Zen Studios Creative Director. “If those prophets could have seen
this all come to pass in the new Balance of the Force pinball tables, they’d be flipping out."
Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force table lineup:
The fate of the galaxy is in your hands! Help the rebellion
destroy the Sith and the fearsome Death Star in the Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi
table. Aid Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, R2-D2, and C-3PO in their fight against the
Sith in order to restore peace to the galaxy.
Pay tribute to the Dark Lord of the Sith in a table dedicated to Darth
Vader. Use the dark side of the Force to mercilessly pursue the Jedi and Rebel Alliance and face off with Obi-Wan
Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.
Support the Rebel Alliance's Fleet or the Galactic Empire's Armada, as you lead your
side to victory in Star Wars™: Starfighter Assault. The table features legendary Starfighters
like the X-wing and TIE Fighter, and iconic vessels like the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star II.
Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force will integrate seamlessly into existing Star Wars Pinball games and Zen Studios
pinball platforms on digital stores including Xbox LIVE® Arcade, Steam, PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 3 and
PS Vita, Nintendo Wii U eShop, Apple App® Store, Google Play™, Windows 8, Mac App® Store and Kindle Fire HD.

09/09/2013 - Project Phoenix raises over 800k
11:07 pm pdt
Japan's indie RPG feat. AAA talent!
TOKYO, Japan… Project
Phoenix, the Japanese indie RPG being crowdfunded through Kickstarter, has surpassed yet another one of its stretch goals.
In total, Project Phoenix has succeeded in raising more than $800,000 through both Kickstarter and Paypal with approximately
50 hours remaining in the Kickstarter campaign before the official funding period is over. This latest milestone entitles
backers to an official Project Phoenix poster for those who ordered physical copies and a digital copy for those whose rewards
include only the digital copy.
In addition to the milestone, Project Phoenix has forged a partnership with the
Japanese figurine manufacturer Good Smile Company, known for being one of the largest manufacturers of games and anime figurines
for franchises ranging from Touhou Project, to Attack on Titan, to Valkyria Chronicles. Together, Project Phoenix and
Good Smile Company will create a 1/8 scale figurine of the Elven Pathfinder Sylrianah.
"We are extremely grateful
for the passion, enthusiasm, and generosity of our backers," says Hiroaki Yura, Project Phoenix's producer and director.
"Our fans have shown time after time again that they are excited by our mission to revive the JRPG genre. Furthermore,
we're thankful that a reputable company like Good Smile has faith in our ability to succeed and we are excited to be working
with them to bring one of our cherished characters to life!"
The new Sylrianah figurine can be obtained by
pledging through the Project Phoenix Kickstarter through a $950 pledge tier or through Paypal after the end of the Kickstarter
With all its successes in securing a Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita release for Project Phoenix,
the only way people can purchase such copies will be through the Playstation Store as of now. However, backers for the
Playstation 4 and Vita can obtain a digital version of the rewards through a special "Treasure Hunter" tier that
is priced at $120.
This information is open for immediate release. Visuals are available for download.
