RG: There are some DLC tables for the PC version of Zen Pinball. Will the 3DS see those extra tables?
Neil: Yes, definitely. We’re just waiting for the right time to add the support for add-on content for Zen Pinball. It will be definitely available this year. We’re going to have new tables for Zen Pinball, we’ll also release Marvel Pinball [for the 3DS, PS Vita and PC] and we’ll have add-on tables for that as well down the road.
RG: Now that you talk about Marvel Pinball… You’ve made some tables based on other licenses. Would you like to create a Nintendo based table?
Neil: Yes, definitely. We’d love to make Mario, Zelda or Pokémon pinball tables. Nintendo is obviously very protective of their Intellectual Properties, so we hoping that once our games become established on their platforms they’ll see us as a good potential partner and they’ll want to work with us.
RG: Will Zen Studios work in the future in something besides pinball games?
Neil: We’re already working on some other games besides pinball that we will be announcing a little bit later. One of them will be coming to the 3DS, one won’t (at least not initially). We’re very excited, we’ll announce them… Sometime this year, I can’t say more than that!
RG: One last question: Have you thought about using the Wii U controller for a pinball game? With its triggers and its accelerometers it looks like a good fit.
Neil: Well, the new Wii U controller is… very good for pinball, actually. I can’t talk you much more than that right now but yeah, I agree that it would be pretty cool for pinball *laughs*.
