Earth is under attack! Major cities have been leveled by asteroids shot by evil aliens! Witness the horror, the inhumanity! 


If you feel the righteous urge to give those aliens their comeuppance, you’ll be relieved (or baffled) to know that the best way to do it is through a pachislot machine, the science-defying amalgamation of pachinko and a slot machine.

  Is your attention caught?
 Is your attention caught?

This particular video is the trailer for Uchu Senkan Yamatao-licensed edition of said pachislot machine. Namco Bandi/Yamata reasoned, however, that an animated spot might not be nearly enough to raise the roof and get the excitement up, so they had a half-dozen ladies dressed up as STAR BLAZERS’ Yamato crew do the announcing. Call me crazy, but I think it might’ve got the release a little more attention.

I suck at games of chance. I know that doesn’t make mathematical sense, but it’s true. If it takes talent to have good luck with gambling, I don’t have it. I’m bad at slots and horrible at Pachinko, so I’d just be doubly awful with pachislot.  But I know, for a fact, that you in the Anime Vice community are a lucky breed.  So would you up for this if it showed up at the casino on your corner? Would you be raking in the dough (or the yen?)

Never enough Space Battleship Yamato love. Maybe you should have made the picture of the hot girls bigger.

 Not as cool as the CGI effects for Space Battleship Yamato 2's Pachinco game.  ^_~
Still, I'm looking forward to seeing what the Japanese do with the live-action movie for Yamato.
