Resident Evil infects pachislot parlors
Part of Capcom’s fiscal year 2009 strategy involves Pachislot, namely licensing their franchises for Pachislot use. We saw a Devil May Cry 3 pachislot machine last year and this year Capcom plans to expand into the business with “several pachinko/pachislo machine models.”
The four reel, Biohazard pachislot machine pictured on the right is one of them. Yamasa, who also worked with Koei to bring Sengoku Musou (Samurai Warriors) into Pachislot parlors, is developing the machine. From the art it looks like this Pachislot machine is based on Resident Evil 1, which probably means Biohazard 2, 3, 4, 4 Wii Edition Pachislot machines are planned for the future.
