Prediction - Elvira 3 - 2017
« on: March 19, 2017, 10:53:50 AM »
Theories and rumours are that Elvira 3 might be announced at TPF (Texas Pinball Festival) - March 24-26 2017

Dennis Nordman, Greg Freres and Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) are doing a presentation next week at TPF. Dennis and Greg worked on the previous 2 together and and only makes sense that they do number 3. Cassandra loves pinball and a great supporter. The previous 2 games are well known for the humour and fun play. So interesting that she is coming to what is now being the review pinball show of the year. There was a picture floating around for a while of a secret project in Dennis's shed covered up so he is working on something and Spooky has also recently said that he would not do Elvira 3 as he is good friends with Dennis.

For those that don't know Dennis and Greg have a small business together called Whiz Bang Pinball and Stern made their 1st game Whoa Nellie Big Juicy Melons as a boutique run so guessing Whiz Bang will be revealing Elvira 3 but guessing it would be up there in price similar to a Stern Preium to LE as it was similarly priced to a Premium in the past. But I and others could be really wrong about a Elvira 3.

 except DI, FullThrottle and Domino's. I am sure there are a few more.
More original themes required please.

The theme is awesome. If it is manufactured by Stern, I would not be interested. No use in having an expensive ornament. If it were made by another company, I would be interested, but I would not be part of any pre payment plan to buy the game.

I hope it is a future title.

Unless I was dreaming at the time, I was listening to a podcast about 3-4 years ago where Jack Guarneri (JJP) announced there second or third game would be Elvira.  This would have been before WOZ hit the streets.  I never heard anything more since then.

Perhaps Stern chased the licence before anything was signed with JJP, as they did with Kiss after JPop announced Kiss.  Or perhaps this is a JJP.

Having not heard much from Wizbang and what Denis is doing for a living, it sound more then likely.  But Wizbang are a design company, that previously had an arrangement with Stern for manufacturing and distribution.  Nothing stopping them from having a similar arrangement with JJP now.

...I do think Stern is the more likely company.  JJP has just announced Dialled In, and wouldn't announce anything else for I expect 6 months to not distract from Dialled In being their current new release game.  I haven't seen much on how well Aerosmith sales are going, but with the LEs not sold out, you have an indicator there.  So Stern are probably due to announce their next run.

All will be revealed at TPF in a few says by Alvira herself?
