Zen Studios to Spook Up Xbox LIVE® Arcade With Its ‘Nightmare Mansion’ Table for ‘Pinball FX’

San Francisco, CA – January 16, 2008 – Zen Studios, a videogame developer and digital publisher known for its innovative arcade, strategy and action games, announced today the release of Nightmare Mansion, a downloadable expansion table for the popular Pinball FX game on Xbox LIVE Arcade. The Nightmare Mansion table – complete with haunted house motifs, monstrous sounds and ghoulish effects – is available for download starting today.

Pinball FX was released on Xbox LIVE Arcade in 2007 and combines the arcade thrills of traditional pinball with enhanced game play, unparalleled graphical detail and exciting, innovative features not found in any other pinball game. The Nightmare Mansion table will cost only 200 Microsoft Points for gamers looking to get their “thrill” on (the full version of Pinball FX is required and is available for 800 Microsoft Points, or $10 USD). Nightmare Mansion will feature several “wickedly” cool modes of play and includes an additional dedicated achievement for gamers looking to boost their Xbox LIVE Gamerscore (the “Monster Hunter” achievement for 20 points).

“With two separate playfield levels, five modes of gameplay and tons of bumpers, slingshots and kickbacks, Nightmare Mansion is a deal so good, it’s scary,” said Zsolt Kigyossy, Managing Director for Zen Studios. “This terrifying table serves as a great compliment to the already impressive array of tables for Pinball FX.”

Nightmare Mansion is one of several Pinball FX expansion tables that are slated to be released within the coming weeks and joins the existing Speed Machine, Extreme, Agents and the recently released free Buccaneer tables that have made Pinball FX a popular and exciting title on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

So muster up your courage, get your flipper fingers ready and prepare to explore the creepy abandoned mansion on the hill in Nightmare Mansion, the new haunted house-themed table for Pinball FX that will chill your blood!
