Bounty Killer - Gackt Game

There is a little more information about Bounty Killer... the weird project Gackt is producing that looks like either a video game or a casino slot machine.

It seems now, according to this site ...

it is both. This is a Japan-only PS3-exclusive slot machine game to be released in Japanese format in October.

The main character in the game is modeled after Gackt (Looking much like Gackt in the Vanilla video and perhaps a bit of his character in the game Bujingai.), and his music will also be featured in the game. Tracks like 'Another World,' White Eyes,' and 'Justified' are included in the soundtrack.

Gackt also produces this game.

The above site has screenshots.

exactly HOW the slot machine relates to game play hasn't been described as of yet, but my guess... if you get three 7's in a row at a maxium bet at the casino... you win a LOT of money. If you get three 7's in a row in this game, you'll get a major progression in the game, or score a major bounty. That's the only way I can think of it.

I guess we'll have to see when our Japanese friends let us know what they think about the game.

Gackt Translations

for those of you who do not speak Japanese
but want to know what the heck Gackt's Myspace blogs are saying....
I am running a Gackt myspace translation blog
The translations are to the best of my ability, I am not an expert yet by any means
but you'll at least get the general idea

Bounty Killer

What exactly is this?

if you watch THIS VIDEO

It appears to be an arcade / slot machine game.

Sound production/supervision and voice-over by Gackt

It APPEARS to be a Japanese Casino slot machine game.. kinda
