Title: New iDOLM@STER Arcade game - The iDOLM@STER: LIVE in SLOT!

Okay I think I've gathered my senses.  This is a collaboration between Namco Bandai and Sammy, a subsidiary of SEGA who specializes in pachinko and pachislot games.  Much to my disappointment, this is not a remaking of the original iDOLM@STER arcade game, but a PachiSlot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachislot#Japan) game.  Kinda surprised they're not using 2ND VISION character designs, but I think really, this will be pretty negligible for most of us.  Otherwise, if you ever find yourself in a pachinko parlor in Japan, be on the lookout for this, as it will launch on May 23, 2012.

What was that?


It's not a fake is it? ^^;; It looks so serious.
Well anyway, I like the graphics of 1st Vision so this should be interesting...although I'd really like my hands on this.

Edit: pachislot....I'm not really sure what that is...but it sounds disappoint.

While I much prefer the designs for 2nd Vision, I have to say that lack of Hibiki is what hurts the most.

lolwhut?

Yeah, we definitely need more gambling rip-offs in our lives.

How long has this been in development?  Perhaps I'm mistaken, but that sounds like original Yukiho.  Also, did anyone go cross-eyed trying to follow all the different panels?  Some of them look like they were developed specifically for this game.

Wouldn't come as a surprise to me if a lot of this is composed of cut content from the first Xbox iM@S being recycled for this.  I think things like that have been done before.

Those are too cute.

I'd still buy it. No lie.

This is having me so worked up and excited. 1st vision iM@S is back and I missed them so. It would've been nice if they included Takane and Hibiki but, I'm still good. I want the albums if they're going to release them now!

It certainly is different.  I wonder what the lyrics are... hopefully nothing creepy like "Play pachinko until your wallet runs dry!"

I still think the combination of Namco Bandai and pachinko is a match made in hell.

Yeah the pachi-slot games are dead serious in Japan. The machines are everywhere, they bring in tons of money, so this will be a high-profile investment.

Just look at the Pachi-slot Resident Evil movies they made JUST FOR PACHINKO ONLY!

Resident Evil Pachislot

Biohazard Resident Evil Pachislot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f2RxP7xfSc

Pachinko is serious business:

IT#4 How to play Pachinko
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tRclMW6YqQ

The yakuza would agree.

The image of a guilty guy walking sheepishly into a room while making excuses for being late and then a certain number of metal balls roll out from his pant legs is like a classic image now. Relationships, marriages, careers have been ruined due to pachinko.

Post by: TTB on May 08, 2012, 04:58:54 am

hahahaaaa

But seriously it's like a slot-machine that never stops spinning and never stops showing you whether you're winning or not and plus you get to watch a cool movie that responds to how well you're playing non-stop it can be crazy addictive.

For games like this you can sit there playing through different route after different route and keep going to the atm machine/teller/clerk get more metal balls in your bucket, come back, keep playing and before you know it there goes your rent/tuition/food money for the month.  8) Plus these pachi-slot games are almost never allowed to released in any other medium (exclusive license for the content for pachi-slot) so the only way to see the scenes is to keep putting those metal balls in!

Of course now we have things like nico and youtube, but it's likely the Yamaguchi and Sumiyoshi syndicates will assign associates to harassing video sites to make sure those scenes stay exclusive. So when it comes out, any scenes that will be up, be sure to download them! They'll probably be pulled very soon! And maybe some poor うploader is going to get his kneecaps busted or a baseball bat in the face!  :-X

Here is a short nsfw (a small bit of female sort-of-nudity) real life gif about how serious pachinko is:

I'm just disappointed at the lack of Takane and Hibiki. I mean, it's not like they don't have Cute&Girly costume designs or that they weren't around for 1st vision.

But no Hibikin and Ohime-chin makes me sad. T_T

How old do you have to be to gamble in Japan? 20?

Post by: TheTanStar on May 09, 2012, 05:59:17 am
Let me put my 2 cents into this:
The im@s 1 designs were used because the engine used in that game was a middleware engine (ie. It's an easy port).
If this were to see a console release, it'd probably end up on the 360 due to the above. If it ends up on PS3, it'll happen at the same time as the 360 release due to Microsoft's new release rules in Japan.

How old do you have to be to gamble in Japan? 20?
In Japan, it's illegal to "gamble". However, "skill-based" games are legal, which is why games like mahjong and pachi-slots (like this one) are legal.

Ditto.  I was going to try to make a gif from those inserts in the trailer - but it didn't work.

(this bit might be ridiculously stupid, but ... meh)
So an iM@S Plinko game with multiple balls and a video screen?  Or did I just fail at understanding Pachinko?
Wonder what would trigger the movies.  And wonder how much cash in metal balls would you have to stuff into the machine for a full "playthrough"

Quote from: Wikipedia
A pachinko machine resembles a vertical pinball machine, but has no flippers and uses a large number of small balls. The player fires balls into the machine, which then cascade down through a dense forest of pins. If the balls go into certain locations, they may be captured and sequences of events may be triggered that result in more balls being released. The object of the game is to capture as many balls as possible. These balls can then be exchanged for prizes. Pachinko machines were originally strictly mechanical, but modern ones have incorporated extensive electronics, becoming similar to video slot machines.

Quote
Modern pachinko machines are highly customizable, keeping enthusiasts continuously entertained.

Quote
The Japanese government estimates the annual revenues of the pachinko and pachislot industry are in the region of ¥29 trillion (US$378 billion) thereby indicating the popularity of these games. This is approximately four times the total profit of world-wide legal casino gambling each year.

In other words, invested parties are always coming up with new widgets, gimmicks, lures and styles so with a big cash-cow as this game will be it's not unlikely that they may try some newer tricks.

Here is a quick guide to the game:

http://www.japantoday.com/category/lifestyle/view/an-addict%E2%80%99s-guide-to-pachinko

Seriously though, if you are bad at pachinko? Depending on the game type you could lose hundreds of USD/tens of thousands of yen and get almost nothing. But this is unlikely. To explore every single route in the game? It will definitely cost all but the very best pachinko players at least a hundred USD, maybe even two or more.

If I had to guess I would say that there will be rotating goals, like as an IMAS song progresses the "target" slot will change so adept players will have to adjust the speed to quickly change the trajectory to new target areas.
