Zen Studios originally revealed that “Zen Pinball 2” would be making its way to the Wii U as a free download from the eShop in December. Unfortunately, you’ve probably noticed that it hasn’t shown up yet… A delay has pushed the game’s release into January.
No specifics were given in regards to why “Zen Pinball 2” has been delayed for Wii U, but in response to eager Twitter followers asking about the game’s digital arrival Zen Studios said, “Sorry, not until January.”
“Zen Pinball 2” will be a free download when it finally arrives, only asking players to dole out the cash if they want a chance to play on more tables, each of which can be demoed beforehand. The Wii U version also brings some new features, including touch-screen controls via the GamePad and a motion-controlled “Free View” mode.
January is only a few hours away, but a specific new year release date has yet to be announced. While we wait to hear when exactly the game will be available, check out the initial table lineup below.
