Stern Pinball, Inc. and Toho International, Inc., a subsidiary of Japanese entertainment studio Toho Co., Ltd, announce a new line of pinball machines based on Toho’s iconic film franchise featuring the king of monsters, Godzilla! The Gondila pinball the machines are available in Pro, Premium and Limited Edition (LE) models.
Godzilla is the longest-running film franchise created by Toho, with thirty-two films produced since 1954. The popularity of the films has made Godzilla one of the most recognizable symbols in pop culture worldwide. In addition to numerous awards and film awards for films, music and special effects, the Godzilla film series and licensed characters have generated over $ 1 billion in sales of goods worldwide.
In this monster-free pinball adventure, players get up Godzilla!! The evil aliens, Xiliens, use mind control rays to take control of the monsters King Gidora, Gigan, Megalon, Ebira and Titanosaurus. Siliens require all the resources on Earth. Godzilla and her allies, Motra, Rodan and Anguir, fight Silien’s invasion in order to conquer Mechagodzila to become the King of Monsters!
There is chaos and destruction on the court with Godzilla’s multiball, which began with the shooting of one of the various shots in and through the centrally located skyscraper. In the Premium and LE models, a motor activates the skyscraper, deflecting the balls through each of its five floors until it collapses, eventually locking three balls on its roof. The Premium / LE playground also has a collapsing bridge ramp. This animated detachable ramp is guarded by a custom Godzilla and can divert pinballs back to the fin or directly to the court during the Bridge Attack multiball.
In the Premium and LE models, Mechagodzilla has a motorized set of three banks that rotates to reveal a rotating mechanism and a jump. Players will engage in battle with Kaiju by dropping pinballs on the jump ramp and hitting the magnetic ball catch on her chest to launch a Mechagodzilla multiball.
All models of Godzilla pinball machines have an innovative “Magna Grab” magnetic ball, capable of capturing pinballs from five different launch paths, including immersion. This device can also deflect pinballs to adjust photos from the upper left fin. The game also includes the iconic title song “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult, a stunning hand-painted work by Zombie Yeti, intricate wire ramps, three rotating targets (Heat Ray, Mechagodzilla and Monster Rampage), three fins, three “powerline” themed targets for straightening and a pop pump for UFOs. The game highlights video and audio from ten * Toho Show films by Era Godzilla to create a one-of-a-kind immersive pinball Godzilla experience.
