Tekken Pachislot is a slot machine game developed by Bandai Namco Games and Yamasa. It was first released in 2004 and three further versions of it have since been released. It is only available in Japan. A number of pachislot endings were made available in the Tekken 7 gallery.
Many of the pachislot movies are interactive, with differing endings depending on the players success at the game - a failure will show the main character losing in some capacity, whilst a win will progress the story to the next scene.
A pachinko (パチンコ) machine is a mix between a slot machine and a pinball machine and it is very popular in Japan. The word pachinko comes from the onomatopoeia "pachi-pachi" which is the sound objects make when colliding with each other.
The pachislot (パチスロ pachisuro in Japanese) is a slot machine whose name comes from "pachinko" and "slot machine". It is a descendant of pachinko, a Western machine. It is very popular in Japan and pachislot machines generate a lot of revenue, placing it in third place in the leisure economy.
The pachislot game starts by chips being placed. The player then scrolls through several reels with symbols on them, each independently controlled. The player must press a button under each roller to stop scrolling. Based on the results obtained, the player can then earn tokens, which can be exchanged for prizes.
In Tekken Pachislot, it is possible to attend original cinematic scenes related to the Tekken universe. If the player cannot align the requested symbols, it will also be possible to observe a scene that will end in a negative way. It also features unpublished CGs of the characters in the game.
Tekken Pachislot (パチスロ 鉄拳) was the first game released in 2004 in Japan. Jin Kazama, Ling Xiaoyu and King II are the three characters that can be selected to play. There are various modes such as Multi-Roulette, Battle, Heihachi slot, Tekken Bowl, Tekken Chance and Tekken RUSH. Through these different game modes, characters can battle enemies such as Devil and Unknown.
The character models used in the game for cinematic come from the first Tekken Tag Tournament. Therefore it is possible to find stage decorations from the same game.
Tekken Pachislot 2nd
Tekken Pachislot 2nd (パチスロ 鉄拳2nd) is the second game released in Japan in May 2013. Lars Alexandersson, Asuka Kazama and King are the playable characters. The modes present in the first pachislot are available again. The character models in this game use cinematics from Tekken 6. So, there are stages like Urban War Zone, Fallen Colony or Gargoyle's Perch also featured in the game.
All characters in the game have Japanese dub voices.
Tekken Pachislot 3rd
Tekken Pachislot 3rd (パチスロ 鉄拳3rd) was the third game released in Japan in September 2014. In this game, the characters are in a team, like Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which the game cinematics come from. The playable teams are Jin Kazama & Nina Williams, Ling Xiaoyu & Alisa Bosconovitch, as well as King II & Jaycee. There are usual modes present that were in previous Tekken pachislots like Tekken Chance and Tekken RUSH. New modes appear such as God Tekken RUSH. The mode features the appearance of Angel, Head-Butting Combo where Heihachi Mishima shatters his head against the screen. Also new modes like Tekken Attack, Ogre Challenge, Unknown Zone and Devil Battle have been added.
Since the models of the characters come from Tekken Tag Tournament 2, stages like Moonlit Wilderness, Winter Palace and Arena are in the game. Some characters available for free DLC on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 also make an appearance. Characters such as Angel, Kunimitsu and Miharu Hirano. However, Angel was removed from the game in March 2016.

See Main Page: Tekken Pachislot 4
Tekken Pachislot 4 (パチスロ 鉄拳4) is the fourth slot game released in Japan in July 2019. The character models are based on Tekken 7. In this game, as well as many mini-games from previous pachislot games, two storylines are playable, one focusing on Claudio Serafino and Ling Xiaoyu (Sirius Side), and the other following Lars Alexandersson and Alisa Bosconovitch (Yggdrasil Side).
Tekken CR (鉄拳CR) is a pachinko machine game released in January 2014. The goal is to move a ball by operating the joystick and then the player has to juggle the shooting speed to get the ball into holes. This will activate a system similar to slot machines. If three symbols are identical, a certain number of marbles can be won according to points earned based on the presented symbols.
Just like pachislot, the game features cinematic scenes related to the Tekken universe and a number of unpublished CGs of the characters. If the player aligns the symbols incorrectly, a negative scene will appear. For an example, one of the scenes has Devil Kazuya capturing Asuka and throwing her off the top of a skyscraper in front of Jin, who jumps off in his motorcycle to rescue her. If the player fails to align the symbols, both Jin and Asuka get hit by Kazuya's eye beam attacks and plummet to their deaths. If the player succeeds, Jin does catch Asuka and they land safely on the ground.
