  1. That’s pretty awesome , I have Zen pinball and Marvel pinball on 3DS and they’re excellent for playing on the go. I’m downloading this right now!

    1. Ever since I was a young boy,
      I’ve played the silver ball.
      From Soho down to Brighton
      I must have played them all.
      But I ain’t seen nothing like him
      In any amusement hall
      That deaf dumb and blind kid
      Sure plays a mean pin ball!

    1. The UK is an uncivilized pitiful attempt at a country. All you Brits have horrible teeth and cannot speak English. You are just as bad of a country as Iraq is.
      ~THE REAL Bill~

      1. Why don’t you piss off with your pathetic comments. Every-time I come here to read constructive comments I see trash from the likes of you.

        UK is very civilized and we wouldn’t have trash like you here.

        1. UK is very civilized , but the big cities are just crime riddled shit holes like the rest of the worlds big cities…

          1. Actually, I (after five months of living there) am finding London rather civilised. I accept some like Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow are pretty scummy but I reckon most of the nasty bits of London were crushed by the Olympic Park.

        2. I’m in the UK to, and yes we are very civilized here in Lancashire as well. Unlike you Bill, we don’t waste our time trolling on websites.

      2. Fuck you, I can only assume you are a retarded redneck who only has a computer from stealing it, you proberly don’t even know what language English people speak

            1. Ummm.. you do know that people in the U.S consider “America” a synonym for The United States right? When we say America it ONLY means the 50 states.

      3. Im assuming youre a fast food guzzeling american hillbilly who wouldnt know the english language if he stared it in the face (figure of speech). And we dont have bad teeth and oversized ears, were not all royal you know.

  2. Now Nintendo is as low and pitiful as Apple. Both companies are such fake unmanly gaming companies. All you Nintenbabies need to get a manly gaming PC and buy Valve’s manly library.
    ~THE REAL Bill~

    1. That’s right you Nintentwats…Your weak little unmanly system is only for little girls and babies, neither of which me or my boyfriend will ever touch, because they are both very unmanly. You should all get manly boyfriends like me and you could touch each other in manly ways while opening each others Valves…but you won’t, cause your a bunch of unmanly Nintenbabies, ha!
      ~THE REAL Ballsack~

    2. I hope you drown on valve’s shit dumped directly from Gabe’s fat ass diarrhea so you’ll be covered in shit all over your face playing shitty valve games like the little shit you are.

      1. Whoa whoa… It was all good until you mentioned Gabe…Valve is amazing and so is Steam. You have no idea what your talking about.

  3. Go away Free-To-Play -.-
    It’s such a cheap money grabbing system.
    You’re supposed to play a game, and get more stuff by playing it, thats why we play games, thats what drives games forward. Not play this piece of shit game thats good if you buy your way to being good. Gee, how swell, buying my way to being good at the game -__- might as well just hire somebody to play it for me.
    Can you imagine Metroid, but you have to buy all the items?
    Free to play is a scam.

    1. With something like Metroid it would suck but I reckon it’s okay with something like a pinball game. I’d happily pay £2.50 for an unlockable pinball table. I mean, in this case at least, I’ll probably spend less than £20 yet get as much enjoyment as I would from a full price pinball game. I may have fewer levels but I’ll enjoy a higher rate of the levels I have.

      1. But the problem is its one of those things that could and probably will start tending, and be the new DLC bullshit.

    1. Maybe because those people, myself included, are from the UK?
      People in Eastern countries dont say, “i hope this game comes to Asia”

  4. Wow, there’s some full blown retards on here…

    The game looks pretty sweet tho, I can’t image a pinball game selling normally so using a dlc approach prob would work best

  5. I read this exact News on NowGamer almost word for word. I’ve checked the U.K eShop three times now and it’s not there. Where is the actual source/proof that says it is available to download today as i’m feeling a little dubious about this claim myself.

            1. fanboy, you must like shit and your insults are sad, farfetched, and you are in denial, nintendo wont publish anything, bring anything and makes companies like xseed take a fucking risk, bring shit over, gamestop made the deal with nintendo for xenoblade, gamestop is the only reason we got that, nintendo deserves hate, not blinde hate, like most faggots, truth, they dont listen to fans help there system with good games nothing, every one i know fucking hates skyword sword, they didnt want people to know there was a better game, or something, if they pull fucking shit like this in this generation every one that has any common sense should fucking leave, i will, and this is coming from someone who LIKES nintendo the best, and this is why nintendo of AMERICA sucks, im not going to buy a system just for fucking mario, they think thats good enough, that every one will think, hey another fucking mario game, wow nintendo, marios great, everything else is fine and you clearly give a shit like you used to in snes days, now it seems to switched and europe is the good ones, oh yea what about that vc, oh yea fans want wiiware, shovelware, are you so much a fanboy you cant see this, i win, keep up with insults and what not, and say this is lies, because there not
