    Not sure, it would depend on specific licenses and license-holders.

    B movie horror inspired tables would be great!Or how about in particular tables inspired by Hammer or AIP(Roger Corman, for example The Pit and the Pendulum)?
    But sadly all this will never happen.Zen are horrified of horror so to speak and also would need to create a standalone platform to sell these tables under a higher age restriction.Now Zen is focused on maximum commercial output with Marvel, Star Wars and even The Walking Dead(which should be a R-rated table if you want to do it right).
    The room for original, edgy or less commercial themes seems almost non-existent to me.A shame really.So many possibilities will be left unconsidered and many great suggestions throughout the threads are in vain.

Deep backed up my suggestion and then said a BTTF would be awesome. Now if Zen is smart they would consider a Transformers table or tables. Just think having the Transformers table you play on transform into a huge Autobot or Decepticon etc. If Zen does develop a Transformers table it would bury the Marvel tables. So Zen start talking deals with Hasboro and Michael Bay. ONE SHALL STAND ONE SHALL FALL Autobot bots ROLLOUTTT....
    A Transformers table would be great to see, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it would bury the Marvel themes.

    Also, Stern Pinball made a Transformers pin a few years ago. So if you really wanted to get your fix you could play that. Which makes me curious...

    Barbie, how do the licensing of IP's to real pinball manufacturers like Stern and JJP affect Zen? Or is it a non-factor?

    PS4 request

    My request is simply this:

    -all available tables from Zen to play on PS4. There are some great tables that have not made their way over to PS4 from PS3 yet, and even though I still play them on the PS3 the step up in quality and feel from PS3 to PS4 is a huge difference. Please continue to complete the ports over to the PS4, please. I don't even mind paying again. The increase in graphics, performance, and the controller/flipper feel are worth the jump over to PS4. Oh and please continue supporting 3D, that is the ONLY way I play!

    Given that we're getting a Walking Dead Table with Telltale, I think a Wolf AMong Us/Fables Table is pretty much on the cards, but I would still like to say that I would definitely love to see one anyway!

    Also with a Deadpool Table incoming and thus Marvel stuff likely once more, I think I would love to see packs of tables based on events as well as characters. Since we got an Avengers Chronicles Pack I would love something similar for Spidey and the X-Men, say the following:

    Spider-Man Chronicles

    - Kraven's Last Hunt
    - Maximum Carnage
    - Spider Island
    - Superior Spider-Man

    X-Men Chronicles

    - Days of Future Past OR Dark Phoenix Saga
    - Age of Apocalypse
    - House of M OR Messiah Complex
    - Avengers vs X-Men OR Battle of the Atom

    Also Character tables for Daredevil and Captain Marvel. And after Zen having done a table for the Avengers film, maybe they should consider a MCU Pack, with some of the movies or even the Agents of SHIELD series.

Not sure who else because most all of the other major villains have been featured one way or another. Maybe Ultron and then throw in the anti-hero Punisher to round out the pack. I would buy it

    Marvel villain's pack (i.e. Venom)
    Darkstalkers.

    But the exact same table layout and use the actual ROM, but a castle that actually took damage and was destroyed and rebuilt, an animated dragon, a real tower with different animated princesses, a real catapult slinging the animal at the castle, etc., etc... They could do some kick ass things with the table. There is probably a bunch of real tables that could get the Zen treatment that would be a blast.

    The best of both worlds for sure! I think this would be the best table ever...

    Right, they definitely have great originals with inspirations and homages to real pins. however, I would like to see their take on a non-original table. A mashup of the digital animations and graphics that Zen is great at and a classic original pin. MM was just an example that could easily translate.
