Zen Pinball 2 was originally set to launch on the Wii U eShop in December. Obviously that didn’t happen. The studio is now hoping to have the game ready to go sometime this month.
But why the delay? Community manager “BarbieBobomb” explained that Zen Pinball 2 is the first free download title with paid content on any Nintendo system. As a result, Zen Studios and the Big N have been working extra hard to avoid any potential issues.
“Zen Pinball 2 is the first game of its kind on any Nintendo system (free platform download with paid DLC) so we’re working with Nintendo to make sure there are no issues at launch. It’s a first for them, so we’re doing what we can to make sure everything goes smoothly, even if it means delaying a bit.”
