Just when you thought it was safe to stop buying Pinball FX tables

, | News

Sometimes I think I have all the Pinball FX tables I’ll ever need. Then the developers at Zen Studios make announcements like this:

[In Universal Classic Pinball] players can get behind the wheel of the DeLorean time machine and travel through different eras of Hill Valley to fix the space-time continuum on the Back to the Future table, take on the terrifying great white shark on the Jaws table, and go on an adventure with Elliot as he helps E.T. contact his spaceship and return to the stars on the E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial table!

I didn’t realize until I read that announcement, but I’ve gone my entire life with a hole in my soul the exact shape of a Jaws pinball table. The Universal Classics collection, which might as well be called Jaws Pinball and Two Other Things, will come out with the launch of Pinball FX3. The target date is only “this summer”.
