The last Evangelion
game to be announced for the DS was a cute minigame collection
based on an SD comedy spinoff of the series, taking the characters out of the world-saving storyline and putting all the characters together in an elementary school. The next game using the license, then, must be the real
one, some kind of robot-filled RPG that retells the epic storyline of the anime and manga, right? Or, like, a big robot fighting game?
Nope! It's pachinko. A PS2 pachinko port, to be precise. Hisshou Pachinko/Pachislot Series 1: Shinseiki Evangelion - Magokoro wo, Kimi ni
debuted as a pachislot machine
, then was released by D3
as a PS2 game
in September. It may seem like a miss to people who want substantial Eva
games, but this is probably going to sell.
