Zen Studios has revealed a new kind of pinball game: Pinball M. Following in the vein of Pinball FX, this brand-new digital pinball platform designed especially for horror fans. Pinball M will transport players into a world of terror, where every flick of the flipper can lead to victory or disaster. 

Pinball M will launch with five horrifying tables inspired by world class IPs. These include the Child’s Play themed Chucky’s Killer Pinball, Dead by Daylight Pinball, and Zen Studios’ own Wrath of the Elder Gods Director’s Cut. To round out the launch, Zen Studios is also developing two other tables that will be revealed later. Each table is promising to keep players on the edge of their seats with a thick layer of horror assets.

One mechanic the game introduces is a new ‘Play Corner’ feature. Activated in the table menu, this feature immerses players in a 3D environment that’s themed to match each table’s horror-inspired design. Players can customise assets to make each Play Corner unique. Craft your own personal corner of horrors in the game with eerie decorative elements which can be earned through gameplay.

“We are thrilled to bring this new pinball platform to our players with a killer lineup of new licensed tables,” said Mel Kirk, COO of Zen Studios. “Over the years, there have been many mature themes that we’ve wanted to explore on our pinball tables. Pinball M allows Zen to fully embrace M-rated source material and create authentic pinball experiences based on our favorite horror and irreverent themes.”

The game is set to begin terrorizing players on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam, Epic Games Store, and Nintendo Switch soon.
