    Why no cross-buy from Wii U?

    If you bought tables on PS3, they were free on PS4 and VITA.
    If you bought tables on 360, you got Xbox One and Win 10 versions too.

    Probably no cross buy as Nintendo doesn't support that.

    @McLovin: When will the new tableset come to PS4/XBOX/etc? Also mid-november?

    3DS and Wii U supported cross-buy on games and DLC.

    They were using the same shop. Does the Switch use the same shop as WiiU and 3DS?
    Can you purchase Zelda on the WiiU and then download it as well on the Switch?

    Default Great news

    Chuffed to bits with this announcement , as for expecting the tables to come free , I have had this joy in previous carnations of playstation , however , I have had more than my monies worth of £2.50 a table on the wii u and cannot expect the developers to continually give away their tables which on a new format would have taken time , effort and money to do this.
    Rest assured , although probably wont buy all at once , this will be a drip feed of content on my switch and I for one cannot wait to play in the vertical mode which has been missing in all other formats.
    Roll on the 14th November

    I’m excited for this. I hope the game gets support and additional tables and not fall behind other platforms. I’ll download this day 1 on the Switch.

    I'll take whatever they have ready at this time. The rest will come in due time, meanwhile there is plenty of variety on offer here to hold my attention for months.

    Really interested to see what control schemes will be available for vertical mode. I can imagine a few scenarios:

    - leaving one joycon on and playing it like a giant gameboy
    - using a third party kickstand/tripod and playing with two joycon
    - using a third party kickstand/tripod and playing with one joycon / pro controller
    - playing with NO controller and using it like a cell phone (touchscreen controls)

    What else could there be?

    @amlbuzzer 14th? They haven't listed a release date yet.

    I would love to have this on my Switch but really how many times do they expect us to keep rebuying tables. And for the same old half ass'd version which just appears like an after thought and won't be comparable to other platforms. There isn't enough games out for the Switch so I guess most people will eat any $hit their given.

    I'm also tired of rebuying tables as i bought tables on 5 separate systems already which have no cross-buy between.

    Wii U, Steam, Xbox x, Playstation x and Android. I even have the few released on 3DS.

    I would not re-buy the tables on Switch, and i already have the tables on VITA and Android so i have them portable.

    I have two switches, bought one for each kid and so far have sorta kept one. lol, but doubt I will be repurchasing all the tables, yet again. This needs to be addressed. Kinda getting screwed all the time sucks.
    pssssst..........over here..........*In muffled voice* The secret, random word is water. Don't tell anyone.

    I was so very excited when I saw that my XP level had gone up to level 41 and then so very upset when Mc Lovin informed me that It looked like a glitch, but, hey guess what, I'm level 41 and the rest of you are only level 40 or less so suck it bitches.

    I'm curious how will those of us with a ps4 and a switch be able to use the same username?

    I'm ok with the date change. I'm playing Doom now, L.A. Noire tomorrow, and Skyrim on Friday. Don't see any time to play pinball. Might also get Rocket League. Revelations 2 is closer to the end of the month as well.

    Ok, so now Zen is teasing something sweet for the Switch version. Now I'm curious what that could be.

    New features are nice just so long as its not just nudging by shaking. That seems obvious. They need to sort out all the people who already have garnered recognition in the zen pinball community that will now have to start completely over with new gamer titles and have to compete against their own scores some of which, in my case took, many, many hours.

    I’m going to guess and say this feature is HD Rumble.

    Too bad the game will come out after my trip but I look forward to it all the same.

    I never experienced a delay a day before release. To add camara view? It feels like they wanted to release the game on a diffrent date to avoid releasing it with other games or to avoid black friday. Well it feels like this is the case.

    If i get / win 1 dollar for each time a dev says its gonna be sweet, of really good after delaying the game i am kinda rich.

    Anyhow it could be sweet and i am looking forward to play, I hope the game will release "early december" and not on the 22nd or 28th or something.

    Hey!
    You shot the bullseye here!
    We do hope that you'll like this feature and you'll enjoy the game on the Nintendo Switch too!

    We are sorry about the delay though but we believe that this is the way the game meant to be played on this fantastic console!

    Stay tuned!

    I guess I have to experience the vertical play for myself as I just can't see how it will be big enough to see everything clearly. I hope I'm wrong but I just can't see myself using it much unless my less then perfect eye's can see well enough.

    Hey Tech! Long time!
    You did fine on 3DS, can’t be worse than that.

    Quick question: Once the Switch version is out will new tables be released on Switch at the same time as on other consoles? I’m thinking of getting a Switch and as FX3 isn’t on Vita and that was my go to for ZP2 I want a new portable for the new releases. But I’m in a ZP PBFX tournament group and would need to be able to get the tables the same time and wouldn’t want to have to buy them for both PS4 and Switch.
    Thanks

    I'm looking forward to dusting off the Switch for some handheld Pinball FX3. The vertical option sounds great.

    I probably won't buy all the tables (again!)... but if Lair plays well on the Switch, I'll buy a couple of my favorite packs, for sure.

    It has been a while lol.

    You had the same question I was thinking of asking but I doubt they will go on record to say this will happen. Only time will tell if they will try to get the tables to all platforms day one or at the very least week one. Hopefully the Switch is easy enough to port to that it won't even be an issue.

    Oh and my addiction to Zen got worse on the Wii U. At one point I had no less then half the #1 scores in the world on all the tables available. Top 10 on all of them. I can only hope to get the top 100 on the Switch as combined leader boards will be challenging.

    Hey,
    that's a great question. Our future releases will be synchronized on all platforms, so the answer is yes, you'll be able to play all the tables on all the platforms at the same time.

    Does that mean that the missing Marvel and Star Wars tables will be on the Switch soon after launch?

    Nice!

    Will tournaments set up on a PS4 be joinable on a Switch or are those just per the console it was set up on?

    I’ve still been addicted too, mostly playing on Vita and PS4. Will tournaments set up on PS4 be accessible on Switch? If so you should join the Facebook group I’m in. We play two tables a week. It’s just for fun but it adds a reason to go back and play older tables.
    My only #1 Score on the ZP2 leaderboards was on Skyrim, but I’ve dropped to 4th since then.
    I wonder how our 3DS scores are holding up?
    Take it easy man.
    If you’re interested in the group pm me and I’ll send you info. If Switch can’t see PSN tournaments though it might not be worth it if you don’t play on PS4.

    LOL. I played along with Tech in the Hyna gang. Fun times, but he is to pinball what Aaron Rodgers is to football. There were some ace players in there, of which I was not one, believe me. But he kind of ruled that game on the Wii U. You won't beat him Somebody called him a robot once

    Tech, Hunter, it amazes me how you guys do it.

    Im still interested in knowing if the switch version will cross play with the other systems and if so how will we treat the fact that all of us here have different account names on different systems? I assume we will have to start completely over again and then have to compete against our own other gamer tags? Why would any of us want to do that other than the fact that we can now play pinball while using the toilet. I'll be honest, I dont really like the idea of using my switch while pooping.

    I honestly have no idea what you are referencing with your terms "The great Softening" and "Let's get our flip on", I'm old and totally blame myself, but I do know your post was after November 14th and also after the post by Zen, which is most likely within this same thread, that it will now be delayed until December................whatever date in December is inconclusive at this point.

    I am afraid its gonna be late december I don't understand they dropped the 14th of november release just for a camara angle on handheld mode. I agree it looks nice but they could easily changed that in a update...

    Haha. I just mean the firm release date softened to a very soft estimate of sometime in December. Get our flip on - let’s get the game out so we can exercise those flippers and get some jackpots, ball locks and all that other fun stuff that makes Zen pinball the pinnacle of pinball excellence.

    I reckon it means we were fully excited and ready to perform on November 14th. Then, the news came out about the delay and our appetite for sexual congress via Pinball FX3 had to be tempered. Our beacons surrendered meekly back into themselves and softened once again as we regressed back to waiting mode.

    Already asked if it is cross platform leaderboard compatible or it switch specific? How big of an sd memory card will be needed to store all the tables? How much of the table is required to be on the switch vs the sd memory card?

    I was so very excited when I saw that my XP level had gone up to level 41 and then so very upset when Mc Lovin informed me that It looked like a glitch, but, hey guess what, I'm level 41 and the rest of you are only level 40 or less so suck it bitches.
