This month, fans will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens on 4/26, a date chosen based on the designation of the planet Ripley and the Colonial Marines visit in James Cameron's sequel. What originally was a goofy little fake holiday has since grown into a massive promotional event from 20th Century Fox and a number of its licensing partners. While there's certainly a discussion to be had about corporations co-opting something as seemingly innocuous as Aliens Day, there are some rather exciting and cool products coming to honor the film.
Case in point, Zen Studios' new Aliens vs Pinball expansion, which features three new tables based on Aliens, Alien: Isolation and Alien vs Predator.
We found Rey, you guys. She's here on this virtual pinball table from the upcoming Star Wars Pinball The Force Awakens add-on. Yes, that's right; starting next week, you'll be able to revisit your friends from the latest Star Wars feature --- including the movie's actual protagonist Rey, bizarrely absent from way too much Force Awakens merchandise --- all from the confines of you console/PC/tablet du jour. Provided you have these new Zen Studios pinball tables, that is.
