Hammerin’ Harry as an anime series and a pachislot machine

Recommended Videos

Siliconera commenter Mazen actually mentioned this back in April (thanks!!), but now Ikuze! Gen-san (Let’s Go! Gensan) is out and a select few people may recognize the main character. Irem teamed up with an animation studio to make a slapstick comedy anime. I don’t think this was broadcast on TV, but there are DVDs floating around with an original story.

 

What is even more unusual is the number of pachinko and pachislot machines with Hammerin’ Harry branding. After the giant hammer swinging Game Boy games, Hammerin’ Harry was primarily found in pachinko parlors until Irem decided to bring him back into games this year. Irem hasn't given any signs this will be localized, but I think someone will publish it outside of Japan. However, the game may not be called Hammerin' Harry since the trademark expired a long time ago.

 

A Hammering' Harry autobiography would be an interesting read…
