Shin Godzilla Teams up With Evangelion’s Unit 01 to Take Down Ghidorah in Pachinko Collab
Pachinko and Evangelion go hand in hand, Evangelion and collaborations with Shin Godzilla are also very common. What happens when you combine all of it? One mega pachinko collaboration that sees Unit 01 take on the power of Godzilla and transforms into its Kaiju Mode, dubbed G Awakening Unit 01. Alongside the announcement of the new machine, a story trailer was released with some new CG of the mecha and kaiju taking on an exclusive Ghidorah form.

Megumi Hayashibara, who voices Rei in the Evangelion franchise, will sing two new exclusive songs for the machines, as well as Evangelion theme song singer Yoko Takahashi’s newest single “Teardrops of hope.”
It’s a shame that these images, storyline and more are stuck inside a pachinko machine, cause these previews go hard and would make for a great OVA, Khara.
