Ultimate Spider-Man-Themed Pinball Machine Announced by Stern



A pinball machine based on The Ultimate Spider-Man series of comics will be the next game from Stern Pinball. Stern released a Spider-Man pinball machine in 2007 based on Sam Raimi's films starring Tobey Maguire, but will be reissuing the game as part of Stern's 'Vault Series' with a reimagined Spider-Man theme based on Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man comics.

While the gameplay in Marvel's Spider-Man will remain largely the same as the 2007 version, the game will look and sound different than its predecessor in many ways. Here are some of the major changes:

   All art (playfield, plastics, side-art, back glass, etc.) is based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comics. Art pulled directly from the comics (by Mark Bagley) was repurposed for the machine.
   Animations on the dot matrix display have been redone to match the theme.
   Game modes have been changed to reflect events in the comics, not the movies.
   All toys have been re-sculpted to match the theme.
   Voice actors have re-recorded all sounds and speech. Two new songs have been added to the original game's score, to boot.

Stern's Director of Marketing at Stern Pinball, Jody Dankberg, told IGN that when they brought up the idea of a Spider-Man reissue with Marvel it was Marvel's idea to "make it more Marvel than Sam Raimi's Spider-Man." He adds, "It's been transformed into a comic book world, so the layout and the colors are very similar, and all the images and stuff are ripped straight out of Ultimate Spider-Man."

In the new art (check out in the image slideshow above!) Spider-Man seems to be as much of a theme as comic books themselves. According to Dankberg, even the new animations reflect Spider-Man's comic origins, "[The display animations] are in the vein of the comic book style ... panning around still images and stuff like that." The game's back glass art depicts Spider-Man fighting Doctor Octopus, complete with speech bubbles.

You can purchase the new Spider-Man pinball machine for a suggested retail price of $7,595 at an authorized Stern distributor, or play it in an arcade (or barcade!) near you.

Stern has been quite busy, and, according to Dankberg, they are working on a total of 7 titles at the moment including Marvel's Spider Man. They recently released their Game of Thrones pinball machine which we hope to get our hands on, soon.

I like the artwork in this version. Not sure if I would pay $9000 for it though.
