Japanese owners of iOS-based devices will be getting a chance to play a new Tekken game, only this time it’s not a straight fighter. Titled CR Tekken, the new game based on the iconic arcade fighting game will be a Pachinko game. CR Tekken is designed to simulate the feel of a pachinko machine in your iOS device, but keeps a Tekken theme and introduces several features such as a battle mode where the fights take place in the middle of the metal pachinko balls.
For the uninitiated, a pachinko machine is similar to a pinball machine, but has a vertical orientation and doesn’t use flippers – instead, it uses a large number of small balls that are released by the player into the machine, which then cascade down through the forest of pins. Depending on where the balls go, they can either be captured or may trigger even more balls being released. The object of the game is to capture as many balls as possible, which can then be exchanged for prizes.
CR Tekken can be downloaded from the Japanese Apple Store for ¥1,500 ($15).
