The Scoop

Haggis Pinball Announces Centaur Revisited

Haggis Pinball caused quite a stir in the pinball community when they released the teaser for their next game, with many getting caught up in the Eight Ball Deluxe vs Centaur debate. Turns out, it was Centaur all along, which Haggis confirmed when they dropped photos and a press release to their Facebook page late evening on July 4th.

Centaur Revisited is being released in two trim levels.

  • The base model, AKA The Beast Edition, retails for $15,000 AUD (~$10,000 USD) and is essentially the classic Bally game with extras like dual LCD screens in the apron, RGB lighting, 2.0 code, topper, and more. Only 250 Beast Edition models will be produced.

  • The premium model, AKA The Orblivion Edition, retails for $25,000 AUD (~$16,695 USD). This version includes a slew of extras like colorized playfield artwork, a fancier topper, custom callouts, extra multiball mode, and some collectible items like a vinyl pressing of the Centaur Revisited soundtrack and airbrushed motorcycle helmet and leather jacket. Haggis plans to produce only 50 Orblivion Editions.

Deposits can be made on the Haggis webstore starting at Wednesday July 12, at 11am AEST. Or, contact one of their exclusive distributors like Flip n’ Out Pinball in the United States, Nitro Pinball in Canada, and R-S Pinball in Europe.
