Pinball FX 3 Flips Onto Switch December 12

Pinball FX 3 will release for Switch on December 12, 2017, after seeing several delays. The game features some cool enhancements, including HD Rumble and the ability to play in vertical mode. The title will be free to download with one table and the others you purchase separately.



Hello Pinball Wizards! We are excited to finally bring Pinball FX3 to Switch on December 12! That’s a few weeks later than we initially promised, but the improvements being made are well worth the wait. We used that time to implement an excellent suggestion from Nintendo – turns out it’s much more comfortable to hold the screen vertically in your hands when only one Joy-Con is attached instead of the two we were originally proceeding with. Zen is now ready to present the BEST portable pinball experience available.

And have you heard about the exclusive Switch features? HD Rumble ensures that all 30 tables (with more to come!) feel like you’re playing real pinball more than any other video game out there. Meanwhile, that perfectly balanced vertical orientation we mentioned earlier allows you to play with the perspective of an actual pinball machine.

Some in the studio actually believe that Pinball FX3 on Switch to be the best, most authentic handheld video game pinball experience ever. If you’d like to see it in action yourself, check out this live PFX3 Switch demo with Akos and Mel as they demonstrate the awesome functionality (the good stuff starts at 5:24).

Thank you all for your patience – none of this would be possible without such a dedicated pinball community. We can’t wait for you to experience this perfect fusion of game and console for yourself!
