AQ Interactive Cans PSP Pachinko Game

image Every December, it seems, AQ Interactive cancels a game with a press release. Last year it was Cry On. This year it’s a game you probably haven’t heard of, CR Hana no Keiji Zan.


CR Hana no Keiji Zan is a pachislot port with a Keiji manga license. This is the kind of game that wouldn’t ever come to North America anyway, but it’s worth mentioning since AQ Interactive just canceled a low budget pachislot game.


AQ Interactive started developing games for HD consoles like BulletWitch. Then they funded Mistwalker’s projects like Away: Shuffle Dungeon. This year, AQ Interactive released a nostlagic music/rhythm game, Ju-On: The Grudge, and a mahjong title starring characters from When the Cicadas Cry for PSP.


Here’s another look at their unfinished project.

    It’s pretty fascinating how AQ is still around. It seems like all their products bomb in retail.

    Hmm, AQ Interactive owns XSEED, right? I hope nothing bad will happen.

    I’m not sure what the appeal of PSP pachinko would be. You don’t even get any money for winning. O_o

      Bomberman Land for PSP has a pachinko game in it, you win money which you can spend on clothing accessories and ingredients. There’s also a fashion show and cooking competitions.

      Unlike the other casino games in Bomberman Land the pachinko requires no skill while still being fun and having a good payout.
