No The Pinball Arcade Nintendo Switch Port Planned



The Pinball Arcade is a pinball game along the lines of Zen Pinball 2. People essentially get the platform and one table, Tales of the Arabian Nights, for free. It’s been released on a number of platforms since its 2012 release, but it isn’t looking like the Nintendo Switch will be one of them. FarSight Studios has confirmed it currently has no plans to bring The Pinball Arcade to the Nintendo Switch. (Thanks, My Nintendo News!)


The statement comes from The Pinball Arcade Facebook page. After asking about an update regarding the Nintendo Wii U version’s European release, a fan asked if the game could come to the Nintendo Switch. The official reply stated, “WE do not have plans to release for the Nintendo Switch, but we will pass the suggestion along for you.”


The Pinball Arcade is available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, Windows PC, and Macs. It is also available for Apple iOS and Android devices. Linux and New Nintendo 3DS ports have also been announced. Tables found in the game are based on actual Bally, Gottlieb, Stern Pinball, and Williams tables.
