09/10/2013 - Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force Coming Soon
Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force Coming Soon for Download

Feel the disturbance in the Force with Three Brand New Star WarsTM Pinball Tables

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."

Star 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.

Star 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
Japan's indie RPG feat. AAA talent! Kickstarte​r

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 campaign.

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.
