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
