The Fever Symphogear are pachinko parlor games based on the Senki Zesshō Symphogear series.
Machine Type History
The etymology of "CR" is the acronym for "card reader". This CR machine is a type of pachinko machine that supports prepaid cards. The first CR machine was announced simultaneously by six manufacturers in August 1992. Till then, after February 2018 onwards, models that have undergone type testing at designated testing institutions such as the Security Communications Association have a prefix of "P" (commonly known as "P machine") instead of "CR".
Symphogear Pachislot (2016)
Released in September 2016, this machine is technically not in the Fever Symphogear series since it is not a pachinko. However, it is made by the same manufacturer and is often found under the same roof as the pachinkos. It is the highest stake of the three machines at 75 yen a spin, and the worst paying machine.
CR Fever Symphogear (2017)
This is the first Symphogear pachinko to be released in August 2017 and adaptation of both the Senki Zesshō Symphogear and Senki Zesshō Symphogear G anime. It is also the only parlor game as of now to be released with multiple color variants, those being yellow, purple and green, red and white, and white and yellow. This machine filled rows upon rows in parlors upon release because of its V-Stock feature, with the potential to go crazy and payout continuously for quite a while.
CR Fever Symphogear LIGHT ver. (2018)
This is the first LIGHT version pachinko to be released in December 2018.
P Fever Symphogear 2 (2020)
Released in April 2020, this machine is the sequel to the original Fever Symphogear pachinko and adaptation of the Senki Zesshō Symphogear GX anime. It is very similar to the original in features and gameplay and it can go crazy just like the original. The big draws for this machine are the larger screen and the animatronics, which are some of the wildest out there. The four character discs on the side panels spin, the Symphogear logo drops down and sways, the gauntlet at the bottom comes up, the side panels move in and out, and the Hibiki model at the top of the machine rises and her wings pop out. Hibiki being up is an easy way to tell if the machine is either close to a win or currently paying out. This machine seems to have not had as great of a reception as the original, most likely because of the similarities in gameplay, although there are features that have been added.
P Fever Symphogear LIGHT ver. (2021)
Subsequently, a second LIGHT version pachinko was released in March 2021 with the same name but a different model.
