The first-ever licensed pinball machine will make its arcade debut later this year.
Mattel has inked a deal with Illinois-based American Pinball to make the machine, which will bring the YouTube series “Hot Wheels City” to the classic arcade game.
Players will face off with a villain called Draven and his creature army to get the highest possible score while completing various obstacles. In Hot Wheels Pinball, Victory Lap Multiball, Car Chaos Multiball and Track Multiball will be available, along with Redline Mania, activated by revving the tachometer to create increased scoring.
Classic Hot Wheels cars like Twin Mill, Rodger Dodger, Rip Rod, Bone Shaker and Sharkruiser can be collected by players as they hit targets and complete challenges. The playfield includes loops, Redline tired, tracks and real Hot Wheels vehicles.
The machine will retail for $6,295.
