Yesterday Sega Sammy announced that a new pachislot machine featuring the original Valkyria Chronicles is coming to Japan next year, and promised a trailer.
Today that trailer has come, shhowing off the machine in action, alongside a lot of nostalgic footage.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of pachislot, they’re basically the Japanese version of slot machines, and have pretty much replaced the traditional pachinko machines as the focal point of dedicated parlors that can be found pretty much everywhere in the country. Since they target middle-aged men, they normally feature old anime and game franchises that are popular in that age range.
This new Valkyria Chronicles pachislot will be deployed in Japan in February 2018, and it’s pretty much par for the course features-wise. That being said, it’ll possibly make fans of the series cringe, as those resources would probably be better spent in the video game series.
Yet, considering that we’re actually getting Valkyria Chronicles 4, I’m not even mad. If this was announced before November, I’d have a pitchfork and a torch in my hands right now.
You can enjoy the trailer below. If you want to learn more about Valkyria Chronicles 4, you can check out the first trailer, a recent batch of screenshots showing the villains of the game, more artwork and info, the first screenshots, and info on the launch DLC.
