November’s Full Moon Reveals Moon Knight, Coming to Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue

The power of tonight’s full moon has unveiled the third of four tables for Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue. Influenced by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu himself, Moon Knight is revealed as the second of two “vengeance” tables in the upcoming four-pack, releasing this December on Xbox LIVE® Arcade and PlayStation®Network.

Hidden by the shadows of night, Moon Knight searches for thugs on the streets of New York, bringing vengeance to those who feast on the weak. Set in the beauty of a pending lunar eclipse, Moon Knight has his hands full as he faces off against his greatest enemies, such as Bushman, Midnight, Morpheus and the Black Spectre. Moon Knight draws power and strength from the moon god Khonshu, who constantly prods and antagonizes the hero, and he comes equipped with the Mooncopter and a Moon Crossbow, which was developed specifically for this table.

To get a better look at the Moon Knight table, be sure to watch the trailer in the media player.

The final “virtuous” Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue table will soon be announced. You can post your best guess to our Facebook, Twitter or Forum – any guesses out there?

X-Men Coming to Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue

Great news out of New York ComicCon! X-Men have been revealed as the next table in the upcoming Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue for Xbox LIVE®Arcade and PlayStation®Network. You can watch a table trailer in the media player above this news post.

The X-Men table embodies the classic conflict between Professor Charles Xavier’s band of Super Hero mutants against Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants. Players must deploy the powers of Iceman, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Psylocke and Storm as they take on such classic villains as Mystique, Juggernaut and the Blob, as well as mutant-hunting Sentinels.

The table features missions inspired by actual comic events, such as Magneto’s destruction of the Brooklyn Bridge (NEW X-MEN #147) and a pinball version of the Dark Phoenix Saga that uses actual dialogue from classic issues of THE UNCANNY X-MEN (#135 and #136). There is even a confrontation with the Juggernaut in which Cyclops, Iceman, Colossus and Psylocke exemplify good teamwork as they attempt to stop the unstoppable.

The remaining two Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue tables – one starring a “vengeful” character, the other a “virtuous” one – will soon be revealed.

Here’s a quick look at review scores for Marvel Pinball, and we could not be happier with the reception we have received. According to its current 87 ranking on, the Xbox 360 version of Marvel Pinball is the highest-rated Marvel game released since the site started keeping track of scores. The PS3 version is an 83, like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. We know Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is going to be amazing, so we will have to see where we stand in a few months.

Game Informer8.5 – Silver Award
“Without exception, the four tables are excellently designed, and fantastic ball physics make the game worth repeated play.”

Ars TechnicaBUY
“It's a nostalgia overload.”

Game Pro4/5
“Moreover, Zen Studios opted to use that license to design four distinctly themed tables, each with interesting and unique boss fights, where they could've just as easily slapped some Marvel decals on pre-existing table templates. It's that thoughtful integration of the Marvel brand that really makes this add-on shine.”

Gaming AgeA
“Marvel and Zen go together like peanut butter and chocolate and both go down just as easily.” 

Team Xbox9.5 – Editor’s Choice GOLD
“If you're a Marvel fan like me, then this is going to be Christmas and your birthday all rolled into one.”

PlayStation Lifestyle9/10 – Gold Award
“Marvel fans will also get a kick out of this highly-polished, well-themed game. This, alongside Zen Pinball, is as close to the real thing as you can get, while in some aspects it’s even better.”

“Marvel Pinball is simply one of the most addicting experiences I've had all year…”

Kotaku – The Bottom Line: “Mixing stunning comic lore with impressive pinball physics, Marvel Pinball is a welcome addition to the impressive Pinball FX2 platform. It's worth picking up even if you haven't yet played through all the other free FX2 tables and most definitely if you have. This game sure plays a mean pinball.”

Da GameBoyz9
“Marvel Pinball is proof once again that Zen Studios is, in my opinion, the king of the virtual pinball ring.”

Our favorite quote to date is from the guys at ReadyUpNet: “Imagine if they were able to combine the addictiveness of Pringles, Heroine, Gambling and Sugar... and then slapped Stan Lee's face on the whole thing. Marvel Pinball does just that.”

Marvel Pinball is yours to download today on PSN.

The Amazing Spider-Man, The Invincible Iron Man, Wolverine and Blade are now available in an epic pinball adventure! Marvel Pinball really represents a step up for the pinball genre – the 3D character interaction, the amount of crazy boss battles and modes, along with new scoring systems and social features – and you have what amounts to be an amazing pinball experience.

Even though we at ZEN Studios have been making video pinball games for many years, we never stop thinking of new features to make the game better. Marvel Pinball features two new scoring systems which are designed to improve social connectivity and overall competition. The challenge of beating our own personal scores and checking in on your leader board rankings is fun and all, but we thought it would be even better if you had an idea of your overall ranking in the community. To satisfy the craving, we built the Hero Score system which allows you to track your all time play records and compare to the rest of the community. What about a score that measures how good you and your friends are together? Team Force requires you to band together with friends to rule the Marvel Pinball community. Could this be the beginning of pinball guilds? Disclaimer: Don’t blame us when you start receiving a bunch of random friend requests!

Now for some Blade action! I personally think the Blade table has some of the most stunning visuals you will ever see on a pinball table. Night mode and UV balls are especially necessary as you play to defeat Deacon Frost, Dracula and hordes of vampires. The pesky Hannibal offers some backup support, but it’s really up to Blade to do the dirty work.

Keep your eyes out for tournament announcements as well as new tables – they are coming soon. If you have not already voted, there is still time to head over to to cast your vote for the next table. You guys are deciding who comes next, so make your voice heard (Ghost Rider is currently running away with the vote).

Pinball is a game that stands the test of time, still living beyond the glory days of the arcade and transcending console generations – we hope our love for the genre shines through in every table we release, and hopefully some of that rubs off on you!

Until next time,

Zsolt Kigyossy
