A Mario game from Capcom? That's what Japanese arcade gamers will be playing, although it's not exactly what you would expect.

Capcom has announced its medal machine New Super Mario Bros. Wii Coin World has hit arcades in Japan. Based on New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the cabinet supports four players and the object of the game is to spin a slot machine and match icons to earn medals. Should players reach Bowser, then they will have the chance of winning a Mario jackpot.
