Pinball Arcade Developer Diary Released

By Michelle Balsan, 7 years ago
The folks at FarSight Studios have made a name for themselves through the development of their pinball titles, specifically Pinball Hall of Fame The Williams Collection. Seeing as this has brought the studio praise and success, they've begun development on The Pinball Arcade, 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.

We've got the full list of The Pinball Arcade (Xbox 360) achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
