|Anime Leader and Major Amusement Game Operator
Introduce Game Featuring Dragon Ball Z Figures
Flower Mound, Texas (July 15, 2009) – FUNimation Entertainment,
a wholly-owned subsidiary of Navarre Corporation, Toei Animation, Ltd.,
and Namco Cybertainment Inc., one of the largest amusement game operators
in the U.S. and Caribbean, are bringing the Z-fighters to more than 780
amusement centers around the country.
Already available, these
centers house a new crane game containing figures of Goku, his friends and
foes. The Dragon Ball Z figure crane game will offer an entirely new
experience for those who are familiar with the old crane concept. Instead
of directing a crane claw to a random and, hopefully, substantial grip on
a desired prize, crane players are able to utilize their skills to line up
the claw fingers with one or more of the eight holes in the custom figure
packaging for a precise hook on their favorite Dragon Ball Z figures.
These collector edition figure prizes are designed and manufactured by
Banpresto Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan and cannot be found in retail
