A New Trailer for Konami’s Pachinko Version of Metal Gear Solid 3 Shows Tons of Incredible Cutscenes

Konami has recently released a trailer for its Metal Gear Solid 3-themed Pachinko game, showing off several scenes in the Fox Engine (which was used to power Metal Gear Solid V). Several minigames were shown in the trailer, including a chibi version of Virtuous Mission and a minigame based on Snake’s first confrontation with Ocelot.

The quality of the scenes has prompted some theories that the assets for the Pachinko game may have come from a cancelled remake of
Metal Gear Solid 3. This may mean that the Pachinko version will be a fully-fledged remake of the classic Snake Eater installment from the MGS franchise.

Are you looking forward to this remake, even if it is just in terms of cutscenes? Do you think a Pachinko version can possibly do the original title justice? Let us know what you think below!

Konami Has Trademarked “Big Boss” for Pachinko Machines

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has parted ways with publisher Konami, a company that has been shifting its focus away from AAA games and towards its mobile division and pachinko gambling machines. Konami says that they plan to continue making Metal Gear games for consoles, but their next project for the franchise could be a pachinko machine.

KPE, Konami’s pachinko company, has filed a trademark for “Big Boss” that includes video games, board games, smartphone games, medal games, slot machines, and pachinko machines. This doesn’t guarantee that a
Metal Gear pachinko is in the works necessarily, but we’ve already seen similar announcements for Silent Hills and Castlevania.

SEGA is Offering “Around 200” Employees Voluntary Retirement as Profit Targets Slip

Earlier this year, SEGA announced that they would be downsizing their company and offered approximately 300 staff members an early retirement plan, and it looks like that same sort of scenario may be happening again soon. In the latest financial report, SEGA told investors that they expect to make significantly less money than they originally anticipated. SEGA originally predicted net sales of $1.7 billion during the current financial year, but now expects $1.3 billion. SEGA’s CEO Hajime Satomi blames the revenue reduction from its Pachinko and slot machines.

Satomi explains that sales of the
Bayonetta and Fist of the North Star slot machines were “not sufficient to offset the impact” of advertising and development costs. In order to improve their profits, SEGA will offer “around 200” employees voluntary retirement and restructure their Pachinko and Pachislot division, which has been under-performing for over a year.

While SEGA Games is doing better than the Pachinko and Pachislot division, it is a far cry from where it once was. Back in July, SEGA Games division CEO Haruki Satomi
vowed to win back gamers’ trust by focusing on quality in all of their games. What do you think SEGA should do to regain their fanbase? Sound off in the comments below!

Konami’s Latest Silent Hill Project is a Pachinko-Slot Machine

So this is what it has come to. Months after the official cancellation of Silent Hills, a franchise revival of Silent Hill by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, Konami has announced the next entry in the franchise. Don’t get your hopes up though. It’s not coming to consoles or PC or anything like that. It’s going to casinos.

Konami is creating a pachinko-slot machine based on
Silent Hill. It’s just what the fans wanted. You can see the announcement trailer above.
