    Pinball Magazine & Pinball News PINcast May 2024 recap

    It’s a new month, so time to join Jonathan and Martin for a brand new edition of the Pinball Magazine and Pinball News joint Pinball Industry News PINcast looking back on May and the first few days of June.

    This month’s PINcast is just slightly later than usual to make sure it can include the latest breaking news on the announcement by Dutch Pinball Exclusive about their first title. Jonathan and Martin discuss what it means, the history of the title and when you can expect to see it.

    There were also three new game titles launched in May.

    John Wick from Stern Pinball caused plenty of controversy, as much for the lack of visible weaponry as for the game itself. With several podcasters taking issue with the company and their products, Stern invited a bunch of them over to get a better understanding of how pinball is made and the challenges faced.

    Meanwhile Pedretti Gaming released full details of their first remake game, Funhouse, together with the differences between the two new versions and the all-important pricing.

    Finally, a new game for Multimorphic’s P3 was released by Ian Harrower with his Blood Bank Billiards add-on title.

    Although not announcing a new title, there was much speculation around American Pinball this month. So, to get to the bottom of things, Jonathan and Martin interview American’s Vice President, David Fix.

    In an extended in-depth discussion they find out about sales for current titles, details and the timing of upcoming releases, what the floatation of their parent company means for the pinball operation, who has left the company, the pinball market in general, and much, much more.

    Plus there’s all the news from the many companies designing and manufacturing pinball machines right around the world.

    Get all this and much more in this latest edition of the Pinball Magazine and Pinball News PINcast.

    It’s the best way to keep up-to-date on what’s happening across the industry, so it’s really no surprise it’s the podcast the pinball industry listens to.

A dozen models were shipped to locations across the US for public play the day following the reveal, after which it became the star of American Pinball’s stand at the Texas Pinball Festival.

A full reveal is coming shortly, while there will be a launch party to mark exactly 50 years to the day since the group was launched onto the global stage by winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

    While not announcing their next game just yet, Dutch Pinball celebrate a milestone by launching a new offshoot called Dutch Pinball Exclusive (DPX) to produce short-run titles of 500 or fewer units. It hasn’t been officially confirmed, but the likely first DPX title is discussed along with potential timescales for production.

    Last month there was news of a record-breaking auction price for a Jersey Jack Pinball Elton John Collector’s Edition machine, but this month that record was itself smashed. Get all the details.

    Turner Pinball returned to the Texas Pinball Festival with a very different look to their Ninja Eclipse game, taking onboard much of the feedback from their appearance at Pinball Expo last October. Find out what’s new and how the game plays as part of the extensive TPF 2024 show coverage.
