Programme > Pachinkos Are Go!

With James Fielding

Saturday and Sunday, 55 Minutes
Screenings Room

A popular past time in Japan, Pachinko is a hybrid of pinball and fruit machines as known to the west. Since the year 2000, Thunderbirds has been used as a theme on the various gaming machines. With dazzling CGI graphics and audio effects, many players have enjoyed the sights and sounds of International Rescue as the silver steel balls bounce down the pins, activating the various game stages.

James Fielding presents a series of promotional videos from Japan which show the machines in action and how they are played. Much of this material has never been seen in the UK before!
