Last month, rumors swirled that the Nintendo Switch would see the first new Monster Hunter game since the 3DS days. Those rumors have yet to bear fruit, but here’s a slot machine to get us in the mood.
The new Monster Hunter: World Pachinko machine is made in collaboration with Enterrise, a Japanese company that doesn’t really have any operations in North America because Pachinko is a uniquely Japanese way to gamble. Rather than simply play Blackjack or a slot machine, Pachinko machines award players with special pachinko balls or tokens which then have to be laundered through a different company before they can be converted into actual cash. This bizarre operation is all to get around Japanese laws banning outright gambling.
Anywho, Monster Hunter: World Pachinko whatever will feature characters from the game, such as the Handler and your Palico kitty friend, along with a bunch of random hunters that look like they were created by pressing the randomize button during character creation.
There’s also a bunch of big monsters like Nergigante, Anjanath, and Rathalos.
Expect Monster Hunter: World to hit pachinko parlors in Japan “soon.” We’re still waiting on a new Monster Hunter for the Switch.
