We absolutely love everything that Zen Studios creates for Pinball FX2 and Zen Pinball, and the latest bit of news regarding their videogame pinball series' sounds extremely cool.
Instead of simply creating a new table, Zen is crafting what sounds like more of a RPG pinball experience which they are calling Epic Quest.
Epic Quest is scheduled to be released later this month, and will work with both Pinball FX2 for XBLA and Zen Pinball for PSN, iOS and Android platforms. Depending the platform, Epic Quest will feature new Achievements and Trophies as well.
Check out the trailer and screens below, along with the announcement.

Zen Studios, the definitive leader in videogame pinball, today announced Epic Quest, a brand new, original pinball experience for Pinball FX2 on Xbox LIVE Arcade and Zen Pinball on PlayStation Network, Android Marketplace and the Apple App Store. The table will be available for download in February 2012.
It is the sworn duty of every knight to seek out evil, defeat it, and take its stuff. One such knight is Max, whose enthusiasm for combat is surpassed only by his love of rare and valuable loot. Join Max as he battles hordes of evil (or just evil-looking) monsters, rescues a wealthy princess, and accumulates the loot and XP that make good worth doing. If Max suffers a defeat, never fear! He will return in the next game with all of his hard-won loot and experience levels intact.
“It is our quest to deliver the most entertaining and original pinball tables, and Epic Quest delivers on both fronts,” said Mel Kirk, Zen Studios Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations. “With a wink and a nudge towards classic RPG tropes, Epic Quest blends frantic pinball action, obsessive character building, and liberally applied tongue-in-cheek humor."
As players complete missions and table objectives, Max earns loot, which is essential for defeating monsters and impressing n00bs. Put together a set of "epic" gear and become the envy of all your frenemies! Supposedly, it helps you fight better, too. And if a game ends, experience and loot carry over to the next game.
Epic Quest will seamlessly integrate into Zen Pinball on PlayStation Network, the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace, and the Pinball FX2 platform on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Epic Quest will feature new Achievements and Trophies.
