Slash / He’s a Pinball Wizard who plays the silver ball

Avid pinball fan Slash has teamed up with Jersey Jack Pinball to produce the Guns ‘N’ Roses ‘Not In This Lifetime’ pinball game.

Slash told us: “It’s been a very fulfilling experience working with Jersey Jack on the new GNR Not in This Lifetime pinball machine.

“Jersey Jack pinball games are some of the most unique and beautiful pins ever made and I am honoured to have been able to work with their brilliant team to design one of the most original and exciting Rock ‘N’ roll Pins ever produced.”

Not just a marketing tie-up, Slash designed specific game plays and actions, recorded guitar riffs, music, voice, and video for the new game as well as four unique guitar features for four playable modes in the game.

Jersey Jack Pinball designer Eric Meunier told us: “To have this type of design work and participation from the game’s namesake creating the actual pinball game, has never, ever, been done before in the industry.”

The game features innovative new technology, design and sound. Featuring live performance from their ‘Not In The Lifetime’ tour, with 21 full-length studio master tracks, blasted out in a 120 Watt, 2.1 stereo sound system.

It takes around $1.5 million to complete the whole project and you can see a trailer below.

The game is available in standard, limited and collectors editions, with the latter limited to 500 units and signed by Axel, Slash and Duff.

The game is designed around playing through the Guns N’ Roses entire 21-song setlist with a concert stage and moving spotlights.

1 Full-Length Studio Master Recordings of Guns N’ Roses songs are featured.
