The development of the Pachinko title sequence has been a close collaboration with the showrunner and production team.
We are truly thankful for all the shared resources and inspiration during the design process.
At the early stage of development, we had a chance to research the history of the pachinko parlors from different time eras.
We explored a variety of looks and most importantly, how the playful, dynamic movements from the pachinko machine tie into the dance moves later in the sequence. We were amazed by the entertaining design of the game, and enjoyed learning about the pachinko culture from the design. After moving into production, the CG portion was eventually replaced with live action footage from the actual pachinko parlor in the show.
