Zen Studios has been on a roll recently with their latest DLC tables for Pinball FX2 and Marvel Pinball. Following the recently released Fantastic Four addition, a new super-hero-themed table has been announced for Captain America. The good captain joins the ranks of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Blade, and other Marvel heroes in their quest for pinball justice. The table is said to be inspired by Ed Brubaker’s Captain America 65th Anniversary Special with Captain America, Bucky, and the Howling Commandos assaulting Baron Zemo’s castle.
