ZEN Releases List of Tables That Will Transfer to Pinball FX3

By Kelly Packard, 2 years ago
With a series like Pinball FX, purchase transfer is important to gamers. Each iteration of the modern pinball titles brings a new and updated version of what is ultimately the same game. Some players have been loyal to ZEN's series since the first game in 2007 and some of their purchases date just as far back. At the first announcement of Pinball FX3, ZEN let players know their purchases would once again be carrying over. Now it's time to see which ones have made the list and which ones haven't.

Pinball FX 3

Of course, with the new game, the tables won't be as they were. They'll be updated along with the new features of the latest version of Pinball FX, including "dynamic lighting updates, updated graphics, new modes of play and other exciting features so they look and play better than ever."

ZEN's business model relies upon being given permission to create tables for well-known series like Star Wars, South Park and the Marvel universe. Their agreements with these companies dictated which tables were and were not able to make it into Pinball FX3. According to ZEN, the following tables are not making the jump due to "business-related challenges":

Pack Tables Included (if more than one)
South Park Pinball for Pinball FX2 Butters' Very Own Pinball, South Park’s Super-Sweet Pinball
Street Fighter II Tribute Table for Pinball FX2
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 for Pinball FX2
Plants vs. Zombies Table for Pinball FX2
Ms. Splosion Man Table
ZEN has also confirmed cross-platform leaderboards, matchups and tournaments will be available in Pinball FX3. The features will be shared between Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam. Separately, PlayStation 4 and Steam will share the same set of cross-platform features. Console players can choose to opt out of cross-platform functionality, should they prefer to engage only with players on their own platform.

Pinball FX3 does not have a release date as of this writing but will be coming soon.
