Stern Pinball today issues a press release about their new Iron Man game.

It didn't contain anything Pinball News readers won't already have learned from our earlier reports, but it does include this picture of the machine which looks a little more finished than some of the prototype or sample games out there:

Stern's Iron Man

The press release reiterates how the game includes songs from the first Iron Man movie, without making any references to music from the second movie.

Perhaps the most interesting point in the press release is the fact that the term "Super Hero" is actually a trademark jointly owned by rival comic book publishers DC Comics and Marvel Comics.  Bet you didn't know that.

Anyway, here it is:


March 29, 2010 - Iron Man™ Pinball by Stern Pinball, Inc. provides loads of Super Hero action and adventure. Iron Man™ Pinball offers non-stop action for home collectors and game operators alike. Join billionaire industrialist Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, the metallic Super Hero, on a thrilling action-packed adventure as he battles his enemies.

Created by the game design team at Stern Pinball, Iron Man™ Pinball is based on the Marvel Studios’ blockbuster film, Iron Man, and the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 movie, opening May 7, 2010. Iron Man™ Pinball is sure to be an especially big hit with fans of the world-renowned Marvel comic book series, animated TV series, and films.

Iron Man™ Pinball features speech, art, and dot matrix display images of all of your favorite characters, including Tony Stark, Iron Man, Whiplash, War Machine, Rhodey, Iron Monger, Pepper Potts, Black Widow, and many more. The pinball machine also contains songs from the Iron Man movie score.

Pinball players will fight against Whiplash and his ball-catching mechanism, which whips the ball around the playfield. Adding to the challenge is the mechanical War Machine, firing the pinball back to the flippers, and Iron Monger, rising from underneath the playfield to do battle. Iron Man™ Pinball also features two elevated ramps and lots of multi-ball action!

Gary Stern says, “We’ve had tremendous success with all of our comic book Super Hero movie themed games, and I expect Iron Man™ to be our best.”
