TV Adaptations: Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels

Locations: Ahch-To Island, Mimban (Battle of Mimban)

As a game released for the Switch, players can expect Star Wars Pinball to take full advantage of the platform’s highly distinct functionalities like the vertical play orientation and HD Rumble.

Zen Studios Vice President of Publishing Mel Kirk said that when they first revealed Pinball FX3 back in 2017 for the Switch, the question they often received was about Star Wars. With this release, the studio is excited for fans to experience what they have long been expecting for the Switch. Kirk added that “[c]ombining 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.”

Players can experience some unique gameplay modes of Star Wars Pinball that are exclusive to this console. For example, players can be part of a community-wide Galactic Struggle, allowing them to contribute point to either the light or the dark side. There is also a Career Mode that players can choose to either be Jedi or Sith and go up 50 Career Ranks. There is even a Force Training Mode where players can hone their skills and maximize their potential.

In addition to being available digitally through the Nintendo eShop, the game is also being launched as a physical product, exclusive to the Switch, on retail stores.
