“Capcom is now looking to hire an experienced game programmer under a one year contract. We want to make a fun electronic slot machine using characters such as Mega Man, Ryu, and Zombies. Once hired, you will be in charge of this project from planning to completion.”
In Japan, it’s pretty common for video games licenses to spurn off into pachinko territory. I'm actually surprised its taken this long for a Rockman pachislot to come around! But, Rockman is no stranger to the arcade/gambling scene in Japan. The Blue Bomber previously starred in a fast and frantic pinball game, and a highly obscure Rockman X3-themed roulette machine some years back.
Today's pachinko machines are more than just cabinets for spinning metal balls. New machines feature large LCD displays and surround sound to keep players engaged in an immerse experience. I'm sure Capcom has some interesting ideas up their sleeves to make the whole experience very Rockman-like.
