It has been announced that the pachinko slot game adaptation of the Strike Witches series will include new original episodes featuring the main characters of the series. The three episodes are titled Erica no Hachamecha Cooking (Erica's Absurd Cooking), Sanya no Surprise Birthday (Sanya's Surprise Birthday), and Lynette no Best Friend Story (Lynette's Best Friend Story).

The Strike Witches pachinko slot machines will be available for play at pachinko parlors throughout Japan on August 3, 2015. Oizumi, the company which produces these machines, had acquired the animation studio AIC as a subsidiary in 2010. AIC and its division AIC Spirits animated the 2012 Strike Witches Movie and the 2010 TV series Strike Witches 2, respectively.

The latest installment of the series, Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow, recently completed its advance theatrical screenings in Japan. The third Blu-ray and DVD volume will be released on July 31.

SW should have a collaboration event with Ace Combat Infinity instead of this.
BTW, looks like this thing will be set in 1944.

LOL, so you have to play Pachinko to catch up on the latest episode. Can't tell if troll or serious. Inb4 Konami does this for games now.

Oh you want to play the next part of MGS and/or Castlevania? Play our Pachinko game to see what it will look like, to hell with E3 and TGS.

Supporting late-night anime supports gambling. Immoral cartoons at their worst.

So they are trying to get the younger audiences addicted to gambling, disgusting, however I'll take those episodes if I can find at least a raw of them.
