First Look at Stern Pinball Venom Animations; “Choose Your Host. Change the Game”

This morning a short teaser featuring animations from Stern Pinball's upcoming new cornerstone pinball machine, Venom surprisingly appeared on YouTube.


I have embedded the video and a bunch of pictures from it below. The video shows us the game's tagline for the first time..."Choose Your Host. Change the Game". I assume that means that players can choose to play as several different Venomized characters, each with their own attributes.


I've heard a lot of details about the machine itself over the past several days. Venom supposedly has:


  • A fan layout.

  • Two flippers with Venom's head in between

  • Tons of characters including Doppelganger, Black Spiderman, Hulk, Wolverine, Captain Americas and an number of other symbiotes

  • The game has Carnage and Dopplganger sculpts

  • Plastic ramps with decals

  • Some sort of captive ball rollercoaster up ramp thingy. You know the ramp that takes the coaster to the top of the hill before a drop? It's hard to describe but it looks cool.

  • The top part of the playfield is packed with a pretty open bottom. 3 wireforms, 2 to the left and 1 to the right


Kudos the the folks on in the Poor Man's Pinball Facebook group for finding the video. I can't wait to see this game in action. What we've seen so far looks really cool! New pinball launches rule.


UPDATE: Apparently the video has now been set to private so the embedded vid below won't work until Stern makes it public again. We still have the screenshots that I took and other details below to drool over and discuss until Stern gives us more.


UPDATE 2: I've added the Stern launch schedule for Venom that someone just sent me. As I've mentioned previously we're getting the first official full trailer for the game tomorrow.


UPDATE 3: The video is now back up. See below:

Yeah I think that Stern pulled it because they had it up there too early. It should be coming to the Stern pages soon. I have some pictures from it in my article. Otherwise I think that Frisco Pinball has a copy of it on Instagram.

Stern’s animation prowess with BKSOR, DP and FF have been industry leading. Venom looks to take comics to the next dimension by creating original animated characters for pinball machines. BooYah, b*tches! Stern is a lifestyle.
