Akira Psycho Ball (アキラ・サイコ・ボール) is a 2002 digital pinball game based on the popular Akira series created by Katsuhiro Otomo. It features the original storyline and the animated film adaptation's theme song.

The game was released on the Japanese market to coincide with the release of the newly remastered DVD Japanese edition.

In 2003, the game was translated and published in Europe by Infogrames.

Fields[edit]

The pinball is made of four stages inspired by the movie: Neo Tokyo battlefield, the "A-room", the "Olympic Stadium" and the "Laboratory" transformation.

When the player succeeds, like getting an extra ball or clearing a stage, a short clip taken from the movie is displayed on screen.

Reception[edit]

On release, Famitsu magazine scored the game a 31 out of 40.[1]
