    Default What unused theme would be good?

    Let's imagine money's no object for this. You've been contacted by one of the big names in Pachinko, who are wondering what new design or theme they can use for future machines. Their request is simple. Tell them a theme that hasn't been used before, you think it would work in Japan, and any sort of spec or quirks you'd add to it.
    Although I've posted it in the pachinko area, you can suggest slots too.

    I suggested a Powerpuff Girls pachinko, CRF, with a Battle mode. The girls would fly round the screen on a WIN animation. You'd battle different villains, with their reputation being a bearing on your outcome. EG normally you'd face Fuzzy Lumpkins / The Amoeba Boys for a low chance, or HIM for a guaranteed 16 rounder bonus.

    Slots, I drew up a machine for Stephen King's IT. Based it round the older version. You play as Pennywise in a 2nd person perspective... In other words, you want to get yourself bumped off to win the bonus. Massive scary clown face comes down for the win. Lots of balloons containing CHANCE / BONUS / X etc. I can upload a picture should anyone wish....!

    Anyway ideas on a postcard, for a bit of fun!
    OOOO

    I got an idea.

    I would design my machine around the ocean, fish, and some annoying......B... ehm.. female comes on screen, and makes you loose.

    or maybe a machine called symphobeeeeeeeeer!

    How about a Soapland theme

    Plenty of bubbles and video reaches available.

    I've always thought Kim Possible would make a good Pachislo, you have most all the correct colors - Kim for the red 7's, Dr Drakken for the blue 7's, Ron Stoppable for the 'BAR' regular bonus, Shego for the green (usually melons on a pachislo), Rufus for the 'Bells', Wade for the Jac In, and say the Kimunicator for the cherry. Tons of stuff for reaches and video.

    Yes, I used to watch Kim Possible, deal with it

    Even though they're not my favs, I've always thought Pokemon and Nightmare Before Christmas would make cool pachinkos, and I think they'd be popular, but I know Disney and Nintendo would never let those be made!!

    Ninja Turtles (people say no Disney stuff but both Star Wars & Marvel have games out), WWE, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (for those old film fans), Haunted Mansion (Disney), Harry Potter & I’d love to start seeing more vintage Arcade classics coming out in gambling form! For example, US casinos have a video screen Golden Axe gaming machine (one of my old favorites). https://youtu.be/b_Lfgp8o2Ys

    Could you imagine, Mortal Kombat, Qbert?

    Ooh, Ninja Turtles would be Rad!! I'm surprised there's never been a Qbert one.. Would go good with past arcade themed pachis like Dig Dug, Pac man, Mr. Do, Bubble Bobble, Zaxon etc..

    Marvel and Star Wars were already established pachi series' long before Disney owned them..

    True. But Disney has the power to disrupt the creation of future IP being used. I believe Avengers pachi came out after they bought it. Unless the company was just playing out an existing contract. Don't get me wrong I am sure a "Mickey" game is not in the works. But you never know about some of the more adult franchises. They own Indy (have for a long time). When did those games come out?

    Disney bought the rights to Indy in 2012..the pachi came out in March of 2006..
    Its mostly any of the cartoony stuff I don't think would ever be on a gambling machine!! Although I bet they'd be super popular!! Just imagine a Little Mermaid/Sea Story cross over!!


    I'd so want a Kingdom Hearts pachi!!
