A Persona 5 slot machine called Persona 5 for Reels is on the way. This is an electronic slot machine that will feature art and animations based on the game. Sega Sammy announced the machine, which will apparently eventually appear worldwide. [Thanks, Faz!]
Ahead of any worldwide release, the Persona 5 for Reels slot machine will first appear at Persona 25th Fes. This is the anniversary festival that will be held in Tokorozawa Sakuratown in Saitama, Japan. The official press release says it will be shown there between May 28, 2022 and July 10, 2022.
And here’s the official trailer for Persona 5 for Reals. It calls the machine a Lucky Cascade type. It shows that characters will “attack” when the reels are turning. Icons referencing Joker, Panther, Fox, Morgana, and the Phantom Thief hat will appear. On the upper part of the screen, dungeons from the game will be referenced. For example, during one example, there is a reference to Okumura’s Palace. (That’s the Spaceport of Greed in-game.)
The video didn’t show if the Casino of Jealousy Palace, another dungeon in-game and one that people get a teaser of during the introduction, will show up in the slot machine.
