Stern Pinball is ready to take players into The Upside Down with their new Stranger Things pinball machine. Pinball fans across the internet have been speculating as to what Stern's newest machine is going to be, and finally we have our answer.
Experience the terrifying forces in Hawkins, Indiana that turn this small town "upside down" with supernatural elements, strange sightings, and government secrets. Stranger Things pinball machines will immerse players in a search to unravel the extraordinary mysteries and secret government experiments taking place at the Hawkins National Laboratory. The gameplay focuses on unlocking the hidden meanings of supernatural events occurring in and around the town, including the appearance of a girl known as "Eleven" with telekinetic abilities. The ball is wild as Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Will, Joyce, and Police Chief Jim Hopper help Eleven close the dimensional gate.
"Stranger Things is one of the most successful shows of all time, connecting with people around the world and across generations. This game features action, mystery, suspense, and humor; Stranger Things is a perfect fit for pinball," said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.
Buyers can pick from a Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition model. The Premium and LE will both feature a video projector that will display animations and video directly onto the playfield — a first for pinball! The center of the playfield will have a unique ramp that doubles as a screen, which leads the players into a direct battle with the Demogorgon. These models will also have an Eleven themed "telekenetic" ball lock. The Pro, Premium, and LE will all have unique hand-drawn art, two hideout ball scoops, a Demodog spinner, three custom ramps, and game rules that will transport players into the Upside Down. The Limited Edition models will be limited to 500.
