Japan's consumer affairs agency has declared the controversial complete gacha randomised item mechanic illegal, confirming developer expectations.
The gacha system acts like a slot or capsule toy machine, with players paying a nominal fee for a chance to unlock items. The complete, or "kompu", gacha mechanism locks away a highly rare item until other items have been unlocked.
From July 1, companies employing kompu gacha mechanic will be subject to penalties, though many companies abandoned the system last week, leading analysts to describe the situation as a "disaster of historic proportions".
