There are two new games to discuss this month – one already launched and one about to be revealed – plus a radical update to another new title.

American Pinball released their latest title with a tribute to legendary pinball designer, Barry Oursler, with their Barry O’s Barbecue Challenge game. 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.

Just as this month’s PINcast was about to be recorded, Pinball Brothers confirmed that their third game title would be based on the hugely-popular Swedish band ABBA.  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.

There’s also much more news from Pinball Brothers with some personnel changes at the very top of the company.

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.

All this and much, much more is packed into this latest edition of the Pinball Industry News PINcast.
