A load of anime and manga have been turned into pachinko machines, including Fist of the North Star, Evangelion and Lupin the Third. However, there is no Dragon Ball pachinko machine and probably won’t be any time soon.
Taking a page from the Konami playbook, Namco has announced a 20th anniversary SoulCalibur release for pachinko parlours across Japan.
For the longest time, there’s been a gag that Konami was going to turn Metal Gear Solid into a pachinko machine, like it did with Castlevania and Silent Hill. That is no longer a gag. It’s real.
