It may have taken a bit longer than expected, but the first batch of DLC tables for The Pinball Arcade is officially ready for the PlayStation Vita. This week, pin-heads can download the Medieval Madness and Bride of Pinbot tables for $4.99.
Purchasing the DLC for either the Vita or PlayStation 3 should unlock the content for both versions of the game but, at this point, the new tables have not been added for the PS3. The new tables were released rather unceremoniously and neither Sony nor developer Farsight Studios has offered comment as to why the console version DLC been delayed.
But while the PS3 crowd has to wait for their arcade-perfect recreations of some of the best pinball tables ever created, those playing The Pinball Arcade on the Vita can dig right in.
Medieval Madness features an open field with players fulfilling objectives in order to storm the castle, destroy orcs or tame the fierce dragon. Bride of Pinbot, however, sees players constructing a mechanical wonder, using carefully placed shots to give Bride the gift of sight, speech and, eventually, her own heartbeat.
These latest tables join the four already included with the core game, Ripley's Believe it or Not!, Black Hole, Theatre of Magic and Tale of the Arabian Nights. Farsight aims to continue adding new tables to the roster, coming from the best makers in the industry, Williams, Stern, Gottlieb and Bally.
The original plan was to provide two tables a month, but the process seems to have been slowed down by all that red tape that comes with making content available through PSN or XBLA. The core game was released about two months ago but, for fans of what The Pinball Arcade has to offer, the extra wait was likely more than worth it.
