Zen Pinball 2 is easily the best collection of original videogame pinball titles available, and a Wii U version makes perfect sense. We loved it on the PS3 and PS Vita and all the other platforms, and it will undoubtedly be a great addition to Nintendo's eShop library.
As with the other versions, Zen Pinball 2 itself is a free download that comes with demos of all the available tables. Users can then pick and choose the tables they like the most and pay to unlock them.
Take a look at the newly released trailer, and read on for all the details.
