Stern Pinball, Inc., a global lifestyle brand based on the iconic and outrageously fun modern American game of pinball, announced today that it will be returning to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 7th – 10th. Stern will be showcasing its latest games, including the first public unveiling of Stranger Things. Stern Pinball will be located in South Hall 1 at booth 21239.
Experience the terrifying forces in Hawkins, Indiana that turn this small town “upside down” with supernatural elements, strange sightings, and government secrets. Stranger Things pinball machines will immerse players in a search to unravel the extraordinary mysteries and secret government experiments taking place at the Hawkins National Laboratory. The gameplay focuses on unlocking the hidden meanings of supernatural events occurring in and around the town, including the appearance of a girl known as “Eleven” with telekinetic abilities. The ball is wild as Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Will, Joyce, and Police Chief Jim Hopper help Eleven close the dimensional gate.
“Stranger Things is one of the most successful shows of all time, connecting with people around the world and across generations. This game features action, mystery, suspense, and humor; Stranger Things is a perfect fit for pinball,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.
The Premium and Limited Edition models feature a first ever video projector that displays images and animations directly on the playfield, creating dramatic interactions with gameplay action. The center of the playfield features a unique ramp that doubles as a screen and leads the player into a direct battle with the Demogorgon. These models also feature a new Eleven themed “telekinetic” magnetic ball lock.
The Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models all feature distinct hand-drawn art in addition to the custom sculpted, interactive Demogorgon bash toy, guarded by drop targets and a rotating ramp. All models include two hideout ball scoops, a Demodog spinner, three custom ramps, and game rules that will transport players into the Upside Down.
“CES is one of our favorite events and the perfect place to showcase our newest hit game, Stranger Things, and our affordable home pinball machine, the Star Wars Pin,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “Tech and pinball fans alike will get the chance to play all things pinball at the Stern booth.”
Stern will be showcasing the Stranger Things pinball machine at the following press events: CES Unveiled on Sunday, January 5th, and Showstoppers on Tuesday, January 7th.
Games will be set on free play throughout the week so don’t miss the action! CES participants are encouraged to stop by to check out Stern’s latest offerings, play some pinball and meet the team.
