… and boom goes the dynamite.
It’s reveal day! Iron Maiden is revealed by Stern Pinball via an IGN exclusive.
Congratulations to Keith Elwin and the team on their new game! I’m glad to see his Archer vision get a wide release, even if it’s not actually Archer.
Now the mantra of #WheresTheCode begins. 😉
Stern’s official description of Iron Maiden indicates that players will embody Eddie himself: “Players will immerse themselves in an interactive Iron Maiden universe transforming into various forms of Eddie, the band’s legendary mascot. Players, as Eddie, will embark on a quest to defeat the Beast and his minions across the Legacy of the Beast mobile game and comic book world.”
This quest is not only conveyed by ramps and pop bumpers, but also by the LCD screen mounted on the backglass which, Stern’s Marketing Director Zach Sharpe tells IGN, will feature “Custom animation revolving around Eddie as he battles the beast. In the game, depending on the multiball or modes you are playing in, there are different variations of ‘Eddie’ to match up with the Iron Maiden song, tying the whole universe together.”
