Following our first report on the game, Stern Pinball have now produced a press release about the game and sent us what looks like the front of the flyer for the game.

In the press release, Stern says the game features the voices of Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), Silvio (Steven Van Zandt) and Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco) amongst others and plays the theme tune "Woke Up This Morning" during the game.

Here's what the company has to say about the game:

pinball, offers would be wise guys a dynamic interactive experience into the
world of the critically acclaimed and award-winning HBO® hit television
series THE SOPRANOS®. For all those who have been spellbound by
mobster-themed movies and television shows throughout the years, THE
SOPRANOS® pinball machine is a must for any distributor, operator, and home collector wanting to share in the excitement.

Featuring Tony Soprano, his immediate family and business "family", THE
SOPRANOS® pinball machine challenges the player to rise through the ranks to Boss. THE SOPRANOS® pinball also has elements from the show, including the dancing girls of the Bada Bing!; Tony Soprano's boat, The Stugots, with a
classic multi-ball feature; a safe that cracks open after being whacked by
the ball; and the talking fish from Season Two that always jokes around with
the player.

show, including Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), Silvio (Steven Van Zandt),
Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco). The pinball machine also plays THE SOPRANOS® classic theme song, "Woke Up This Morning," during game play. Pinball Hall of Fame artist Kevin O'Connor arted the playfield, while the cabinet and backglass artwork are taken directly from original HBO promotional art.
