Stern Keeps the Rock and Roll Dream Alive with Aerosmith
Stern Pinball has announced that its newest pingame will honor the legendary rock band Aerosmith and will be available in the usual three versions — Pro, Premium and Limited Edition. The company also says the game will feature a unique twist on classic pinball play: Players score points and complete objectives to raise the energy level of the crowd, in turn creating a bigger, louder rock concert in the game.
During the game, players will rock to nine Aerosmith hits in the concert arena (playfield) and score points working to create the most rocking Aerosmith concert of all time. Expectations are high that the game will be a hit with the band’s many fans who’ve bought over 150 million Aerosmith albums worldwide.
“We’re thrilled to have Aerosmith join the ranks of Stern Pinball’s rock and roll line-up,” said company topper Gary Stern. “Aerosmith is an iconic band with a devoted fan base.”
“Dirty” Donny Gillies will provide hand-drawn art for all three versions of the machine, while Brendon Small (creator of the animated series Metalocalypse) provides custom speech. In addition, the machines will come with a full-color, high-definition display powered by Stern’s new SPIKE-2 electronic platform. The games also include a high-fidelity, 3-channel audio system the company says is three times more powerful than audio systems of previous generations.
