Quoted from Sinestro:

From what’s been posted here, Dennis fished it some time ago.

Maybe a design was finished but the designer needs to be there to make tweaks and adjustments on the first prototype games and see things properly into the start of production if we hope to have anything as smooth and polished as Scared Stiff.

Dennis not working there is a very bad omen for this game in my opinion.

Dennis's MO is to design a playfield / whitewood then let somebody else figure out the rules. Thus him going to deeproot won't affect Elvira from a production standpoint. Greg is still at Stern after all. And all 10 people who've taken delivery of one seem to think Alien is the greatest game ever, same situation.

Doesn't mean Elvira 3 is in the clear. If they expect poor sales it's much cheaper just to cancel (or delay forever) since the real cost is production, not design.

If that seems like a waste be aware Stern buys more licenses than they can even use just so other companies can't get them. For example if Elvira lapsed deepRoot Robert would snap it up so fast Cassandra's head would spin.

#403 2 years ago

I don't really care who makes E3... I just want another Elvira!

#404 2 years ago

I was looking forward to this reveal. I hope it gets made.

10 people covers Minnesota Ben, but I get your point.

Quoted from Wakky:

Last i heard = spreading false rumours. In other words you know nothing.
Slated for Aug .. i already have my order in for the LE

Hope your right...We will all be watching for your post when you take delivery! Either way thanks for the chuckle!

#407 2 years ago

Ben Heck seems to think Elvira 3 is stuck in purgatory.

#408 2 years ago

Nooooooooooooooo!

Anyone know whether the game is truly dead?

#410 1 year ago

I thought they announced this last year at TPF, why would they cancel it now.

Quoted from yuriijos:

Well, they really weren't supposed to say what they said at TPF last year ...

#412 1 year ago

Well, I think they did, why would Dennis, Elvira and gang be there and actually say something to the effect?

#413 1 year ago

Just because its not an immediate priority for Stern does not mean the game is dead. I believe we will see it's release at some point (maybe 2019).

Whoa Nelly sat around Stern for some time before it was released.

G Gomez just confirmed at TPF... still scheduled at Stern. Status: playfield done, waiting for software

#417 1 year ago

Great news from TPF!

Unfortunately there was also talk about doing another Super (money grab) LE. Hopefully it's not Elvira 3.

Worse than that, waiting for an engineer to free up and be assigned to the software, so not even under way.

#420 1 year ago

I'll be buying Elvira III if it gets made. I love the other two Elvira titles. I have this weird need to complete things. I won't be able to sleep at night until Elvira III is safe in my game room.

#421 1 year ago

I can't get one, but I still would love to see it made.

#422 1 year ago

So I still have plenty of time to save up for that NIB purchase?

#423 1 year ago
Quoted from Niterider:

Not if it's an SLE.

#424 1 year ago

Im just glad this game is stiil going to be made. I really hope Elvira 3 is Epic once its finished.

#425 1 year ago
Quoted from Niterider:

Seems like it. I don't mind if it takes a while though because I splurged on a Luci, so wouldn't mind a break from pinball purchases for a while.

What has stopped them before? Release it and wait a long time.

Quoted from vireland:

I believe the specific programmer has already been chosen.

Quoted from vireland:

Didn't they already say there would only be one version? Like WNBJM?

#429 1 year ago
Quoted from RobertWinter:

Gomez just said that they were waiting for one to free up. He didn't say which one, or that it was already assigned, so this is more than Gomez gave.

Quoted from RobertWinter:

Bad comedy that didn't textulate. I sincerely doubt they're going to put the SLE stink accumulated on the terrible, mishandled Batman'66 SLE release on Elvira 3.

Elvira and the Munsters. I want to see these two games made. I'd probably purchase both if made in Pro configuration.

#433 1 year ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

I don't have room for both. Will be a tough choice, but Elvira would have the edge unless I get rid of EATPM or SS.

#434 1 year ago
Quoted from RobertWinter:

That's what I heard. I expect this game to be pricey. Highly doubt I'm in because I'm over expensive games, but still hope it gets made and I get a chance to play it.

A couple of other Pinsiders and I chatted with Cassandra Peterson a few weeks ago (April 14th) at Monsterpalooza. We asked about the game, and here’s what she told us:

1. Yes, the game is happening.
2. The artwork is gorgeous.
3. The LCD screen will feature vintage clips from Elvira’s Movie Macabre.
4. She is doing all of the callouts. In fact, she said that she was going to be recording them “next week,” so this is likely already done now.
5. She said it’s looking like the game will be out either late 2018 or early 2019.

So there ya go. Straight from the hostess’s mouth.

EXCELLENT !

#439 1 year ago

Thanks, Dave. Excellent update. I appreciate it.

#440 1 year ago

Sounds like we might know the final Stern pin name: Elvira 3: Movie Macabre!

#441 1 year ago

That's great news... But, I might not have my Iron Maiden fully paid off by then... Rats... I'm going to really have to kick it up a notch to be able to afford both... But, it would be really sweet to have two NIB games and not have to worry so much about getting them all working.

#442 1 year ago

Thanks for the first hand info Dave!

Thanks so much for sharing Dave! I've been wondering about this for far too long now, and it's great to hear some positive & reliable information with regards to Elvira 3's release.

We interviewed Dennis Nordman for our latest podcast. Will be up on Monday.
We talked about a lot. His entire career.
He did touch on the development of Elvira 3 for a couple of minutes. Nothing ground breaking but there is some cool new info!
