Pachinko Machines Get Their Own Virtual Idols

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Asami Shimodo and Kana Asumi star as Soyo-tan and Miko-tan

Nishijin pachinko machine company decided to celebrate its 20th anniversary by creating its own mascot virtual idols. "Project Soyo-Miko" is a multimedia project starring voice actresses Asami Shimoda (Soyo-tan) and Kana Asumi (Miko-tan).

The first part of the project is a voiced webcomic that can be viewed on the official webpage. The idols are also getting their own eight-track music CD "Happi Hapi Happy! / Soyo ☆ Miko ☆ Tuinkuru" which hits store shelves on December 13. A video previewing the CD's songs is now streaming on YouTube.

The final part of the project is two mobile games that go on sale for Android and iOS devices in the next few weeks. Of course, what pachinko virtual idol would be complete without their very own flashy pachinko game?
