Tales Of Destiny Remade… As A Slot Machine

By Spencer . August 27, 2013 . 2:31am

Tales of Destiny was originally released for PsOne and then Namco Bandai remade it for PlayStation 2. Stan Aileron’s adventure is moving to new hardware… kind of. Kita Denshi is using Tales of Destiny as a base for a pachislot machine.



This isn’t the first RPG turned slot machine we’ve seen. Other companies made Shadow Hearts and Suikoden pachislot machines. Pachislot machines based on video games reuse artwork from the source material and usually play cutscenes when you match three reels.

    .-. Eh… Okay… If I lived in Japan I wouldn’t complain.

  • School Idol Addict

    I was wondering what pachinslot was and after a quick google search i saw that it was just basically slot machines…

    Edit: I guess i should have read the title completely before clicking on the link XD

  • Suriel Cruz

    *sigh*… it was a very very very short joy.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Ruinin’ my Deenjoy, frakkin Namco.

  • AokiShizuku

    ‘Tales of Destiny Remade…’— YES, YES, YE—- ‘As a slot machine’

    Goddammit. Come on Namco. If you can make 4 Phantasia remakes then you can make a 3rd Destiny remake.

    • Wappuli

      But the PS2 remake is already so good that it doesn’t really need new one.

      • AokiShizuku

        But imagine how amazing those spell animations and sprite animations would be in HD.

        Well… Deep inside I just want Destiny DC on a region-free console.

        • Wappuli

          Sure, better is always better but I would still prefer them to use those funds on some new game, or for a remake of some other game that would gain more from it.
          Also, if they would remake Destiny again, I’m sure it would not be 2D anymore.

    • awat

      no kiddin..

  • Warboss Aohd

    ‘facepalm’ Mork preserve me.

  • Alex

    US got the first one, UE nothing.
    I guess after tales of Symphonia hd some remake could be Tales of destiny hd collection. ( never i guess translate 2 rpg no way we get it)

    • Barrylocke89

      Yeah, I was realizing this myself awhile back. Even if they made a nice HD collection with Tales of Destiny Remake (probably Director’s Cut) and Tales of Destiny 2, America wouldn’t get it because we missed out last time.

      And I feel like even though Namco has more faith in the Tales series than before in the west (thank you Namco for that btw, the real fans are grateful!) they may still be unsure about the 2d Tales games, and the Destiny games are both 2d.

      • Bec66

        Well maybe if fans showed support through campaigns it could be a possibility.

  • RichyGaming

    Doesn’t even have to be an HD collection, I would love to at least have Tales of Destiny PS2 on playstation store, im a sucker for 2D.

  • Barrylocke89


    Leeet’s Gambleeeee!!

  • Leeeeoooonn!! XD
    *sigh* I wish the remake got localized. >_<

  • Bobby Jennings

    Namco…just release this on the PSN store…

  • Sentsuizan_93

    There’s also a slot machine for Persona 4 too.
    Here’s the site for it:
    Damn, this slot machine craze is spreading fast…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m starting to believe some game co, are losing their souls

    • $36598391

      or their brains, maybe zombies are taking over Namco Bandai

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        They must have came from Capcom or SE

    • TheExile285

      Some? Lol

  • fairysun

    I want a HD remake of Tales of Destiny and Tales of Destiny 2 (YES, the one with Stahn’s son, not ‘ Tales of Eternia being renamed as ToD2’ one) and the this is the most important part ….

    It HAS English version !!

    Can’t go wrong with more Tales of in my gaming cabinets.

    • Barrylocke89

      Although an HD version of Tales of Eternia wouldn’t be a bad thing to me either, that games really good too.

      • zferolie

        I imported the European version for my PSP, and loved it. Now my PSP is iffy, and I can’t play it… if only I could download the PAL version and put it on my vita.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Destiny has best Music.

        I want more destiny.

        Reid is awesome though.

    • Zero_Destiny

      The easy way to tell apart the Americanized name for Eternia is that it uses Roman Numerals: Tales of Destiny II as opposed to the actual Tales of Destiny 2 which uses Hindu-Arabic numerals instead.

      Of course that’s all pretty moot since everyone pretty much just calls Eternia as Eternia now. lol ^^; I just like to talk about random things a lot ……..

  • Milla

    They are making new 3d models for this so this can only mean a ToDR and ToD2(not eternia) HD remake is coming.

    • Arcana Wiz

      oh please yes! never got to play tod2 and no one is making a patch right now, and the op was one of the best in my opinion.


      • Barrylocke89

        “Don’t need a fancy car…”

    • $36598391

      Namco could just toss the PSP versions of Tales of Destiny and Destiny 2 on a VITA card together, label it Tales of Destiny collection and translate it to english

      • TheExile285

        Namco refuses to localize Innocence R & Hearts R so even if they did do that, they wouldn’t localize them.

        • $36598391

          that would be extremely ridiculous on Namco’s end
          They’re bringing the Tales of Symphonia HD Collection to NA, we just got Tales of Xillia with Tales of Xillia 2 announced coming over next year
          maybe Innocence R and Hearts R didn’t sell well in Japan and they think they wouldn’t do any better here

        • zferolie

          They only refuse because of poor vita sales right now. That coulkd change and maybe they can bring it here then? The drop in price seemed to push some vita sales(I know a few friends that bought it after the price drop)

          • LightZero

            The price drop is only a temporary solution. Even then it doesn’t have the Nintendo brand name to back it. Games is what the Vita to at least get out of 5 million LTD. But that’s a catch 22.

            Anyway I wouldn’t put too much stock in Namdai localizing it anyway. The DS sold 150+ million worldwide and that didn’t make them localize the DS version of the games.

          • Marco Farinaccia


            Sony doesn’t have the luxury of pumping out some Mario games to bring their console from failing to booming like Nintendo did with the 3DS.

      • Bec66

        If they did at least we would get Destiny R and Destiny 2

  • Musashi234

    I was like “OMFG Please tell me its coming to the states”….. Then i read Slot Machine and died more inside.

    • Superior Spider-Man

      I died as well. I could use another Leon, Irony of fate remix.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Come on Namco, at least give us Destiny as a PSOne classic.

  • $36598391

    It would be nice to see Tales of Destiny ported to the 3DS
    Slot Machines…. seriously Namco?
    People go to Casinos etc to gamble, I doubt even half of those people would know what the Tales series is…

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      I know right? They’re so port happy put some stuff on the 3DS gah.

  • artemisthemp

    I was happy until I read Slot Machine…
    Why make spend time on a Remake, if they just gonna drop into a slot machine?

    • JustThisOne

      Because it’s going to be quick and easy. >__> Quick 3D CG work, and some random cutscenes is all you need. This isn’t a remake.

      • artemisthemp

        Still what the chance of this coming outside JP?

        • JustThisOne

          Err. Probably none? Pachislot games generally stay in Japan, I think.

  • JustThisOne

    There are slots for so many games now!~ I wonder if they’ll start pulling out really random or old games as source material when they run out of ideas. @[email protected]
