Pinball FX 2 outed by Aussies

Australian classifications board reveals online-enabled pinball sequel from Zen Studios.


In 2007, Hungarian developer Zen Studios released the first and only Xbox Live Arcade pinball game, Pinball FX. The game has entertained users with numerous batches of content since being released, including the most recent Excalibur table. But if an Australian classifications office listing is correct, the studio is crafting a sequel.

The Australian ratings board didn't ban this one.

Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification has posted a rating for Pinball FX 2. The entry lists Microsoft as the game's publisher, but neither Microsoft nor Zen Studios have officially mentioned the project. As of press time, Microsoft has not responded to GameSpot's request for comment or clarification on the matter.

Unfortunately, the OFLC entry provides nothing in the way of gameplay details on Pinball FX2. However, the classification did reveal that the game will be online enabled, and multiplatform. The original Pinball FX was an Xbox 360 exclusive.

Zen Studios' recently developed games include the Nintendo DS version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game and the PlayStation Network exclusives Zen Pinball and Planet Minigolf.
