posted on by Ko Ransom
The Japanese gaming website Famitsu has announced the upcoming release of Gekiatsu Pachige-Damashi MAX Evangelion "7" X "Seimei no Koudou" (Existence's Pulse), a PlayStation 3 title that will simulate the "CR Evangelion 7" and "Seimei no Kodou" pachinko (a Japanese game of chance) and slot machines based on the Rebuild of Evangelion film series. Both machines feature footage from the films, as well as exclusive CG scenes created specifically for the games.
In addition to modes that simulate regular play on the machines, the game includes "research" and "appreciation" modes. The "research" mode allows players to gather and analyze in-depth data on the machines, and the "appreciation" mode allows players to revisit videos and music they have seen and heard in the past while playing the simulator.
As a special bonus, a limited number of clear files featuring illustrations created specifically for Rebuild of Evangelion pachinko and slot machines by Takeshi Honda, Shunji Suzuki, and Akemi Hayashi will be given to those who purchase the game. Gekiatsu Pachige-Damashi MAX Evangelion "7" X "Seimei no Koudou" (Existence's Pulse) is slated to be released in Japan on September 6, and will cost 7,329 yen (about US$92).
