Ahead of Respawn’s big Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order reveal later on this weekend, Nintendo had their own announcement from a galaxy far, far away with news that Star Wars Pinball is making its way over to their hybrid console later this year. 

The latest release will be a physical catridge for Pinball FX3 and will come with the previously released 19 digital pinball tables, including Star Wars adventures from the original movies, Rogue One, Solo, and even the animated experiences as seen in Clone Wars and Rebels. 

According to Zen Studios regarding the latest announcement, “The Star Wars Pinball Nintendo Switch collection will offer unique gameplay modes only available on the console. Players can participate in a community-wide Galactic Struggle, which allows them to contribute points to the light or dark side, depending on their preference. Likewise, a new Career mode allows Star Wars fans to join the ranks of the Jedi or Sith as they achieve up to 50 Career Ranks, and simply playing any table unlocks special Force Power bonuses that can be applied toward bigger scores. Simply playing any table unlocks special Force Power bonuses that can be applied toward bigger scores, and a Force Training mode will help pinball Padawans maximize their potential.”

“As soon as we announced Pinball FX3 for Nintendo Switch in 2017, the main question we always received from fans was ‘where’s Star Wars?’,” says Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios. “We’re thrilled to bring the Star Wars Pinball experience to fans who have been eager for its arrival on Nintendo Switch. Combining the amazing Star Wars Pinball collection with the innovative hardware features available on Nintendo Switch provides a really outstanding experience in the home, on the road or anywhere else in the galaxy.”
