The folks at FarSight Studios
have made a name for themselves through the development of their pinball titles, specifically http://www.trueachievements.com/Pinball-Hall-of-Fame-xb....htm
. Seeing as this has brought the studio praise and success, they've begun development on http://www.trueachievements.com/The-Pinball-Arcade-xbox....htm
, an XBLA pinball title.
FarSight has now released a developer diary detailing many of the elements that lead to the creation of their pinball games, from securing the rights for the tables (a multi-step process in and of itself) to the accurate recreation of the play mechanics and art of each game. They also assure us that they've secured rights for 90% of the top forty tables of all time, which is a pretty impressive feat!
The Pinball Arcade
will be released in January on the Xbox LIVE Arcade. No price has yet been confirmed. For our previous coverage, head here
