Earth's Mightiest Heroes will test their pinball mettle this spring in a new package of tables from Zen Studios. The developer today announced Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
A four pack of new pinball tables, Avengers Chronicles will be headlined by a virtual machine based on the upcoming Avengers feature film. The remaining three tables in the pack will be based on popular Marvel storylines, including World War Hulk, Fear Itself, and The Infinity Gauntlet.
While World War Hulk and Fear Itself are inspiring games for the first time, The Infinity Gauntlet has shown up a number of times in Marvel games. Capcom adapted the story for both the arcade fighter Marvel Super Heroes and the Super Nintendo action game Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems. More recently, the story arc served as an inspiration for Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet.
Avengers Chronicles will be available as a stand-alone download for the PS Vita and as downloadable content for the Xbox 360's Pinball FX 2 and the PS3's Marvel Pinball.
