You may never have watched six minutes
of promotional footage for a pachinko machine before, but that's about to change. After the break, we have a long
trailer for the Castlevania pachislot
(pachinko + slots) game released in mid-2009, with lots of cutscene footage showing the game's story
. Yes, there's a story
, featuring Trevor Belmont challenging Dracula with the help of the sorceress Angela
, a character created expressly for this game.
This game takes us briefly into a weird alternate universe in which gambling machines are marketed and followed like video games. For example, clicking the far-left link in the navigation bar on the official site will bring up a series of desktop wallpapers. And if you liked the music from the trailer, you can buy the soundtrack
. To the pachinko machine.
