[Nintendo Switch] Pinball FX 3 - Free - Nintendo eShop (Free Carnivals and Legends tables)

Now live on the Nintendo eShop with the Carnivals and Legends tables currently free (usually £6.29 100% off).

Hello Pinball Wizards! We are excited to finally bring Pinball FX3 to Switch on December 12! That’s a few weeks later than we initially promised, but the improvements being made are well worth the wait. We used that time to implement an excellent suggestion from Nintendo – turns out it’s much more comfortable to hold the screen vertically in your hands when only one Joy-Con is attached instead of the two we were originally proceeding with. Zen is now ready to present the BEST portable pinball experience available.



And have you heard about the exclusive Switch features? HD Rumbleensures that all 30 tables (with more to come!) feel like you’re playing real pinball more than any other video game out there. Meanwhile, that perfectly balanced vertical orientation we mentioned earlier allows you to play with the perspective of an actual pinball machine.

Some in the studio actually believe that Pinball FX3 on Switch to be the best, most authentic handheld video game pinball experience ever. If you’d like to see it in action yourself, check out thislive PFX3 Switch demo with Akos and Mel as they demonstrate the awesome functionality (the good stuff starts at 5:24).

Thank you all for your patience – none of this would be possible without such a dedicated pinball community. We can’t wait for you to experience this perfect fusion of game and console for yourself!

You are a service to this site. Keep up the hustle good sir, and thanks


No probs

As a heads up, guys. Once you've downloaded the game. You need to launch it and go to single player. Once in the list of tables you will see exclamation marks on a couple of tables. Click one, it will take you to the eShop. Scroll to the bottom of the list of tables, add the one showing 100% off (Carnivals and Legends) and purchase

Any way that I can get this for my Son’s that is currently wrapped up for Christmas, without doing I from the console (like you can from the PS store)

New to all of this Nintendo stuff.
TIA
Boom.... Liking this a lot. Might even pay for a table if they are giving one away... pavlov conditioning.... show them when they do good things... we do good things back....

Yes for the main download, but tables are managed in-app on Switch so you'll miss the window of free download as I believe it's only a week.

It doesn't seem to be on the web eShop at the moment. I did have a look for a link. It's on the console eShop, though
Thanks for posting :0)...is there an expriy date on this? I ask as the Switch is not being opened until Christmas Day :0)
Nintendo proved me wrong with the switch, i thought it was going to flop in terms of sales.

Heated and downloaded - Thanks!
Love PFX on PC and Android, getting two brand new tables for free on the Switch is a really nice surprise!
Been stuck at zero percent downloaded for a while.
Shame none of my past purchases transfer though.... not buying them all over again!

They won't download until you close/quit the game.
Thanks, got the free tables, need to exit the game again for them to download, was trying to find them in-game once I purchased..... silly me!
super deal, thanks very much!
Sweet, thanks for sharing!
You can change orientation mode by pressing the minus button on left joycon, really weird using the Switch other way up

I hadn't started the game because I hadn't downloaded the game. All good now though and I love the vertical view. It's just a shame I can't transfer all my table purchases from FX2 on Steam.

Oh dear these frame rates are terrible... I reckon SoZ is dropping to 15fps, it's unplayable (portable mode).

​I don't see it after downloading (I closed and restarted the game). I have son of zeus, adventure land and sorcerer's lair and all the rest greyed out. Is it under one of those?

It is a cracking bit of kit, obviously on the net in forums you have the uneducated "hardcore" (smirks) gamers that write the console off without ever using it - but its a really impressive bit of kit. It's also getting decent third party support so I can see it going from strength to strength - it could even turn out to be the most successful thing Nintendo have ever done.

Agreed, i am back in the Nintendo ecosystem for the first time since the N64. I am also a PS4 and Vita owner.

This hardware is impressive, i travel with work and being able to play the same game either on the go or at home is a game changer. I bought the Vita to play while i traveled but it makes my hands cramp. The detachable nature of the Joy-cons is brilliant in this respect. People slating the graphical output of the switch and comparing it to Xbox and ps4 are ridiculous, just look at the physical size difference.

20 hours plus of Zelda through airports, on the plane, in the hotel and back at home in the last week. No other games system comes close to that level flexibility and convenience.
