Last Odyssey: Pinball Fantasia[lower-alpha 1] is an unreleased 1995 pinball arcade video game that was in development and planned to be published by Monolith Corp. for both the Neo Geo MVS (arcade) and Neo Geo CD.[2][3][4] Had it been released before its cancellation, it would have become the first pinball title for the Neo Geo platforms.[3][4] In the game, players assume the role of a knight who has descended from heaven to fight against an army of monsters before facing their demonic king.[3][4] Although previewed across a few video game magazines, it was ultimately shelved for unknown reasons despite being completed.

Gameplay[edit]

Last Odyssey: Pinball Fantasia is an arcade-style middle ages-themed pinball game reminiscent of Devil's Crush and Jaki Crush, where players assume the role of a knight who descended from heaven to fight against an army of monsters through multiple types of tables, each one divided across various stages hosting their own goals, before finally facing their demonic king Satan as the main objective.[3][4][5] The game begins with players shooting a ball into the table by holding the A or C buttons to launch it with a plunger and the longer the buttons are held, the harder the ball is launched.[3][5] Five balls are given at the start of each playthrough, which players must keep going by using the flippers to hit it upward in order to accumulate points and avoid allowing the ball to drop to the bottom of the table.[3][5] There are various bonuses that players can experience during play.[3][4][5] Failing to keep the ball from falling to the bottom of the table result in the ball being lost and once all balls are lost, the game is over unless players insert more credits into the arcade machine to continue playing.[3][5]

History[edit]

Last Odyssey: Pinball Fantasia was created by Monolith Corp., serving as their third title to be under development and planned to be published for the Neo Geo platforms after Minna-san no Okage-sama Desu! Dai Sugoroku Taikai and Bakatono-sama Mahjong Manyūki.[6][7][8][9][10][11] Although its production number during development remains unknown, it is generally believed to be assigned with the number 210.[6][12][13][14] The game was previewed in 1995 on magazines such as CD Consoles and Neo Geo Freak.[3][4][12][15]

Despite being completed and ready for publication, Last Odyssey: Pinball Fantasia was ultimately shelved for unknown reasons, however several possible factors have been given as to why the title was never published in recent years.[7] Between 2002 and 2005, emulated screenshots surfaced online, indicating that the ROM image of the title has been preserved but not made widely available to public.[7][16] Footage from a fully complete and playable prototype cartridge has also surfaced online.[5][7]
