Sega has announced that its previously announced Hatsune Miku "pachinko" "slingshot-shaped room plate" will not be sold at the 82nd Comic Market as originally announced due to "various circumstances." In a stockholders' meeting earlier this year, Sega revealed that they were interested in creating pachinko machines or a "pachislo" slot machines featuring Hatsune Miku, but that they were unable to at the time.
In a separate case, the Ryōhōji temple in Hachiōji, Tokyo, well-known for previous promotional campaigns featuring moe-style art, announced that it would not be selling the Okyō no Tatsujin ("Buddhist Sutra Master") game that it had initially planned to sell at the same event, citing problems involving copyright infringement. A demonstration video for the game can be seen below:
