The Wii U has officially found its way into the homes of thousands of gamers and it seems like Nintendo is doing all they can to deliver games to keep us entertained. "Zen Pinball 2" looks to be next on the list, headed to the eShop later this month as a free download, complete with free trials for each table.
Though "Zen Pinball 2" will most likely deliver a similar gameplay experience to its Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts, there have been some new features added to take advantage of Wii U GamePad. Players will be able to use the tablet controller to do things like control the plunger on the touch screen, rotate camera views, access information via the dot matrix, and use a new tilt-sensitive Free View control.
