Namco Bandai is bringing Yamato to pachislot machines with Uchu Senkan Yamato (trailer here). Dubbed Star Blazers in English, the sci-fi military anime originally ran in the mid-1970s in Japan.

Pachislot is a fancier version of classic slot machines in which the player must stop the reels himself — this is called "skill stop".

While Yamasa is the Pachislot company, Namco Bandai is responsible for the LCD screens and graphics.


Look, rain boots! See, it is possible to rain awesome.
