Pinball Map Open Thread


Huh, never heard about before. Thanks for the pointer!


It’s a good site! He just launched this newest version a few months ago.


We added a Japan Pinball Map! Currently listing 37 locations and 213 machines.

The data is administered by CYC and CDS.


Heh, I’ve always been curious to see what machines operators in Japan would be drawn towards, as the country’s always been a low-priority market for pinball manufacturers. I’m not surprised at all that it leans toward the Gottlieb Super Mario ones and any company’s Star Wars. Those are definitely IPs that are big in Japan. (Not as much Street Fighter II as I had expected, but I guess that makes sense considering fighting games in Japan tend to be right on the cutting edge, with whatever’s popular being whatever is newest.)
