'Tron: Legacy' Pinball Combines Digital Cool with Classic Pinball Action

The fictional game of TRON (as seen in the aptly named Tron Legacy) was the epitome of virtual reality, immersing the user in the world of Tron. Well, now thanks to the folks over at Stern, you can simplify the dangerous computer-based world by conquering their newest release: Tron Pinball! Not only that, but it features the incredibly awesome Daft Punk-produced score! We can’t think of anything else we’d rather be doing! In fact, we’re gonna just leave the rest of this article to the people at Stern – cause we’re headed to the local arcade. Yes, those still exist!


May 11, 2011-In collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, Stern Pinball announces its next pinball game, released May 1, 2011, is inspired by Walt Disney Picture’s TRON: Legacy.

The TRON: Legacy Pinball features an incredible 3D backglass that brings the film’s characters and story to life. TRON: Legacy Pinball also features exciting sound bites from the film’s main characters, as well music from the film’s original score.

In TRON: Legacy Pinball, players battle as Sam Flynn on the Grid against Clu and Rinsler. Players will enjoy multi-ball rounds themed around scenes from the film: ride the two ramps for Light Cycle battles on different levels of the Grid; defeat the motorized Recognizer target bank to expose Rinsler’s spinning Identity Disc; or fire the ball from Rinsler’s Disc to simulate a Disc War. There are numerous play features for characters in the film, including Kevin Flynn, Gem, Zuse, Quorra and Clu. Play all features to escape the Grid through the Portal.

John Borg is the playfield designer and is known for creating recent hits. He is working side-by-side with the great design and engineering team at Stern Pinball. Pinball Hall of Fame artist John Youssi designed the art package and David Thiel engineered the sound.

Gary Stern, founder, CEO and chairman of Stern Pinball says, “We loved working with Disney on this great title. TRON: Legacy Pinball will be a great game for TRON: Legacy and pinball game fans alike.”

TRON: Legacy Pinball will also be released in a numbered Limited Edition version with more features.
