SNK Playmore Officially Withdraws From The Pachislot Market

CSyhlSRWcAAjitK

After a lot of rumors speculated last month, SNK Playmore has formally announced its withdrawal from the Pachinko-slot (pachislot) business. SNK Playmore released a press statement (pdf) announcing their withdrawal

Following that announcement, they mentioned that they will refocus back in making games, such as continuing mobile games such as Metal Slug Defense and making consumer games once more starting with The King of Fighters XIV and IP licensing management.

With this move, this makes Beast Busters effectively their last Pachislot title. All their affected employees have the option to be transferred in the Game Department in Osaka. The only thing continuing will be their costumer service and machine repairs. SNK Playmore started their pachislot business in 2004 with Metal Slug.

The reasons for their withdrawal from the pachislot business are based from multiple factors ranging from a massive market decline particularly to the people in their 20s to stronger restrictions, stricter laws and ordinances against pachinko and pachislot in Japan and the Japanese Diet are introducing a bill that would legalize gambling that it may heavily affect the pachinko/pachislot industry and to some extent, the influence of their new parent company, Leyou Games Group.

History:

Last month, it was rumored that SNK Playmore was leaving the Pachislot business, making it the fifth company to leave the pachinko/pachislot industry. Later, it was reported that SNK Playmore will close their office in Tokyo (which is where it’s pachislot business is handled).

“Heaven” – Ougon Musou Kyoku Cross Extreme Combo Movie!!!

What´s up, friends? I was absent in the cmv scene for about 3 years, so I want to send greetings and tell you about my new stuff. This time is not The King of Fighters line, it’s about “Ougon Musou Kyoku CROSS”. Sincerely, this videogame was unpopular, however, for me it´s an amazing videogame. This CMV, or rather, ECM (Extreme Combo Movie) shows combos about the 19 characters in the game, with single and pair character combos; even though this videogame is unknown for the majority of gamers, I´ll be honest: this Video is the best ever seen CMV about Ougon Musou Kyoku Cross. The combos are so incredible, because I´ve been working close to 9 months. It was so hard get these combos!!!

All the combos were made manually, it was the reason of their high difficulty. I must express my gratitude for the assistance of my mom and my Sister Imouto, because some combos need the assistance of the another character in the battle.

I would also like to express my gratitude to my friend Landir, for showing me this game. I hope he isn´t angry for the trolling at the end of the ECM. I want to express thanks to MpV|Cx Freeman for his support and motivation to bring me back to the CMV scene and MpV|Cx Vice Vecta because he still gives support to old school combo makers like me. Never give up!

¿Cómo están amigos? Estuve ausente en la escena de los CMV´s  por 3 años o tal vez un poco más. Primero, quiero saludarlos y decirles que traigo nuevo material: esta vez no es en The King of Fighters como normalmente lo hacía, se trata de “Ougon Musou Kyoku CROSS”, un juego que sinceramente no fue muy popular, sin embargo, es un juego impresionante. El CMV o mejor dicho ECM (Extreme Combo Movie), muestra combos de los 19 personajes que presenta el juego; hay algunos combos individuales y otros en pareja. Aunque no se sepa mucho del juego, personalmente debo decirles que será el mejor combo music video jamás visto de este juego, pues los combos quedaron realmente increíbles, pues estuve trabajando en el video por casi 9 meses, realmente me costo mucho trabajo sacar todo ese material.

Todos los combos están hechos de forma manual, ahí radica su dificultad. Debo agradecer a mi mamá y a mi hermana Imouto por su asistencia, ya que hay combos en los que se necesita la constante ayuda del oponente.

Quiero agradecer enormemente a mi amigo Landir por darme a conocer este juego y espero que no se enoje por la troleada que hay en el final. Tambien agradecer a MpV|Cx Freeman por ayudarme a volver a la escena de los CMV´s y tomarse tantas molestias, así como a MpV|Cx Vice Vecta por estar siempre con las puertas abiertas para los comberos de antaño como yo, que nunca nos rendimos!
