Wait... no... that's not the right one.

FarSight Studios continues their efforts to bring classic pinball tables to life in The Pinball Arcade with Last Action Hero, a 1993 table based off the Schwarzenegger film of the same title.

In the film, young Danny Madigan somehow finds himself in the world of his favorite action movie hero, Jack Slater (played by Schwarzenegger). As if that wasn't stressful enough, the bad guys from the Slater films accidentally get transported to the real world. What happens next is - well, you'll just have to watch it yourself to find out.

FarSight believes the table perfectly captures the spirit of the film:

Last Action Hero™ (1993): "Did somebody say action?" This action-packed pinball powerhouse harbors the license for the summer blockbuster hit movie of the same name. The table's feature filled design was created by Tim Seckel, Joe Kaminkow, Ed Cebula, and John Borg. This game completely captures the intensity, comedic tones, and cast of characters from the film. Notable playfield sections include the motorized Super Crane™, game controlled magnets which activate during multiball events, the Ripper lane which accelerates a shot ball on returns, and the Smart Missile button above the slick black colored gun-shaped launcher. 5,505 units of this table were produced.
The Last Action Hero table marks the 49th DLC table for The Pinball Arcade, and is part of their Season 5 series of tables. Before Last Action Hero, Rescue 911 was the most recent table. You can find a full list of the tables and seasons here.

There was no release date listed. The table was released last week on Steam, but the developer has acknowledged there are slower turnaround times for the console versions. It is confirmed to be coming to Xbox One. Xbox 360 was not mentioned.
