has announced an exclusive pinball table skin featuring the characters from Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
to their ever growing collection of themed tables for Zen Pinball
. The Gaiden goodness is exclusive to the Playstation Network and will feature so much blood and gore that players will have to wipe their screens by waving their six-axis controller to clear the bile in order to keep up with the action on screen. Okay there isn't (much) blood in pinball, but Zen
is promising a multi-leveled playing field, several speed ramps, hidden holes, and tricky platform jumps. There isn't any news yet on whether or not you can control the jiggling of the *ahem* table with the six-axis controller, but I wouldn't rule that out.
