Trivia / Zen Pinball

Go To

  • I Knew It!: Some speculated that as The Pinball Arcade lost the license for Bally and Williams pinball recreations, they got outbid by Zen. The official news didn't drop until September 4, confirming that Zen did outbid Farsight for the license.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes / No Port For You: A couple of tables didn't make the transition over from Pinball FX 2/Zen Pinball 2 over to FX 3 due to licensing issues. The Switch version of FX 3 also didn't see releases of Marvel or Star Wars games, but Star Wars Pinball made its appearance some time later on that platform.
    • The original Pinball FX games didn't make the port to Pinball FX 2 on Xbox One due to those using old tech.
  • Saved From Development Hell: The gap between Williams Pinball Volume 5 and Volume 6 is 10 months. Volume 6 is Zen's first pack containing alphanumerics. Considering all the previous pinball games involved a dot-matrix display, the previous Williams hardware proved to be quite a daunting task to emulate while not breaking UI elements on all the other tables available. Volume 6 has a release date of October 20, 2020.
