Pinball RPG Rollers of the Realm Announced

ATLUS announces Rollers of the Realm, a game that will put the wizard in pinball wizard by combining a pinball simulation with a fantasy-themed role-playing game. This is planned for release for Windows, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita this holiday season, and in the meantime, the game's official website offers screenshots and details to help us understand how this will work. Here's more on that from the announcement:

In the game, static pinball tables are replaced by dynamic locations with objectives, secrets, and multiple areas. Along with the standard bumpers are AI-controlled enemies, who can attack and do damage to the pinball flippers. And the familiar shiny silver pinballs? Those become playable characters, each with different attributes, special abilities and even physics. The story opens up through an epic six chapters, where players will have to master the strengths and weaknesses of each character ball.

Along with compelling backstories and personal agendas that get revealed through main story progress, characters come to life in voice-acted cinematics and dialog scenes. New characters with new abilities can be unlocked and can browse the realm's item shop. Upgrades bestow enchantments and special abilities that will be needed to topple some of the game's tougher bosses.

One of Pinball FX2's tables *is* a psuedo RPG. Monster battling, loot, and leveling up.

Also, this game looks awful. Makes me think of that ill-fated Unreal-engine title of yesteryear, Adventure Pinball.

Makes you wonder why this hasn't been tried before, pinball RPG.

As an aside, Future Pinball is magnificent.

Bout time, looks like something I'd play.

Only pinball games I spent many many moons on was the original Amiga Pinball dreams and Sierra's 3d pinball games.

But... but... Epic Pinball...

Pinball fx 2 (on steam) has a nice free table you can play thats worth the download that reminded me of the old Amiga's Pinball Dreams.

It may be worth a look for you Axis.
