Coming out very soon for multiple console and mobile devices is the first batch of official Star Wars pinball games, one of which is all about Boba Fett. Produced by Zen Studios, here’s the scoop:
The Boba Fett pinball table features fast-paced pinball action, and focuses on several major moments in Boba Fett’s bounty hunting career as he takes on jobs from two clients: the Galactic Empire and the Hutts. The table would not be complete without a Han Solo in Carbonite spinner and Sarlacc Pit!
Assist Boba Fett in completing two sets of bounties, or table missions, in an effort to gain RESPECT and secure his spot as the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy. To activate the Galactic Empire bounties, spell out the word EMPIRE by shooting the middle-left orbit. Activate the HUTTS bounties by shooting the sinkhole under the seesaw ramp. Just watch out for the Sarlacc pit!
Polygon had a great write-up, citing the rewrite of Boba Fett canon:
The Boba Fett table, one of three included in the Star Wars Pinball DLC for Zen Pinball 2 and Pinball FX 2, has all the bells and whistles of a real-world table. It also has a few unique interactive elements that are really only possible in a video game; a side-scrolling segment featuring Fett’s ship, Slave I, and a “Sharp Shooting” sequence starring Boba himself. There’s also an apparent fight between Boba Fett and Darth Vader; something we don’t really remember from the films.
