Aerosmith will be featured in a new pinball machine that includes nine of their hit songs.
Stern Pinball in association with Epic Rights, Aerosmith’s licensing agent, jointly announced on January 4
that a new line of pinball machines that honour the classic and iconic rock band are currently being produced.
Players will rock to nine of Aerosmith hits in the concert arena playfield. When players score points and finish game objectives the audience’s levels of energy, thrill and enjoyment are raised in the game.
Higher scores amplify the experience – the higher the energy level, the bigger and louder the show.
Essentially this means that as players score more points on the concert-arena playing field, the music and game sounds get louder.
“We’re thrilled to have Aerosmith join the ranks of Stern Pinball’s rock and roll line-up,” Gary Stern, chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, said.
“Aerosmith is an iconic band with a devoted fan base.
“Fans of both the band and pinball will be able to appreciate the extraordinary experience that the Aerosmith pinball machines provide.”
The Aerosmith machines all feature original hand-drawn art provided by “Dirty” Donny Gillies.
Gillies has produced work for bands including The Hellacopters, The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age, The Wildhearts, Electric Frankenstein and the 220.127.116.11's, but is most noted for his work with metal band Metallica.
Additionally, the machines feature custom speech from Brendon Small, creator of Metalocalypse, the American animated television series cantering around a death metal band.
Players will be mesmerized by the interactive “Jacky on the Box” mechanical feature on the playfield.
Jacky sits on a toy box allowing players to launch pinballs through the air and slam dunk the steel ball into the box.
The more balls launched into the box, the higher the opportunity for a player to earn multiballs.
“The Aerosmith pinball machines are an ideal way to expand the band’s global brand because they provide a unique and fun experience for fans and consumers of all ages,” Lisa Streff, executive vice president, global licensing, of Epic Rights, said.
In addition to the heart pounding music and game experience, the machine features a full-colour high-definition display.
In conjunction with Stern Pinball’s new SPIKE-2 electronic platform, the display enables high-definition graphics and innovative animations.
The game includes a high-fidelity 3-channel audio system that is three times more powerful than audio systems of previous generations.
