Pinball is big news at the moment, and so are superheroes. Mix them together and you should be pretty much guaranteed a blockbuster game in that case! Amongst the maelstrom of news winging our way from LA at the moment is confirmation that a 3DS port of Marvel Pinball is incoming and will be with us within the next couple of months.
The game is already available on Xbox 360 and PS3 under the Zen Pinball 2 umbrella, and a Vita version has been promised shortly that will utilize the cross save functionality that was discussed by Sony today, to allow gamers to carry their high scores between the PS3 and Vita. Of course the 3DS will stand alone, but it still looks very close to the original as these screenshots show.
The version of Zen Pinball currently available on the eShop works very well due to the depth of field provided by the 3D effect, so we have high hopes for this one. It looks like it contains at least 4 tables from the other versions at launch with the possibility of more being made available later so it should be well worth a purchase later on in the summer when it hits the eShop.
