When I first came across this commercial my first thoughts were “this has got to be an upcoming CGI Star Blazers movie that I’ve been waiting for my entire life!” But then I noticed at the end of the advert that there seemed to be some sort of box — I figured then that it had to be some sort of amazing videogame:

The Pachinko is being released by a company called Fuji who also has games based on Mighty Mouse and Jurassic Park:

In fact here’s a commercial for the first game, what’s interesting in this avert is the use of the cosplay actress:
