Stern's next pinball machine is a sequel to '80s classic Black Knight

Old pinball heads like myself will remember Williams' 1980 machine Black Knight (not so much that I remember it on release, of course, but it was kicking around arcades for years). The classic machine, designed by industry veteran Steve Ritchie, was well known for its dual-layered playfield and player-activated "Magna-Save" feature.

In 1989, Williams and Ritchie returned with a super-neon sequel, Black Knight 2000. This was an incredibly fast-paced and unforgiving game which went big with lightning effects, bright colours, synthesized speech and an amazing/cheesy cock-rock soundtrack.
