ZEN Studios is taking its flagship pinball title back to its beginnings this week, as it comes to Nintendo 3DS, with one major addition; stereoscopic 3D, of course (what else did you think?). Zen Pinball 3D will be available for download, throughout North America, via the Nintendo eShop this Thursday, January 12th, at the rather decent price of $6.99 USD. Here’s where the “beginnings” kick in. The game doesn’t feature any new tables. Instead, it comes with four original tables from well before the Marvel Pinball days – Earth Defense, Shaman, Excalibur and Eldorado.

If you’re a fan of the franchise who already owns it on a console, I would certainly understand how that may not be as exciting or interesting as it would be for newcomers to the franchise. In fact, I would call that train of thought rather justified and make a point that it sounds like most of the development time for this game was spent on porting the software and adding the second camera to create the 3D effect. ZEN will be releasing more downloadable tables later on, however I would have suggested going in the reverse, and give players who have already experienced the game something new.
