Just saw that this existed and immediately ordered it. Lupin 3 is the only Lupin I've seen, but man, that movie is a masterpiece!

This is where Miyazaki's adventure chops were at their highest - most of his later movies just took the adventure formula from this one and mixed it with environmentalist ideology... with varying results. My other favourite film is Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and I'm almost sure that it took some serious inspiration from Lupin - just watch the two back to back to see what I mean.

I've long thought that it was the perfect movie to turn into an adventure game, and lo and behold - such a thing exists!

Anyway, I hope this game is good. I foresee a mixed movie and board-game night in the very near future...

I'm not going there to die. I'm going to find out if I'm really alive. I have to do it, Faye.

Yes, this is a good game that captures the feeling of the movie and tv episodes fairly well.
The rules are a little dodgy, but if you play it as a fun romp instead of a serious strategy game you will enjoy it greatly.
There is a problem with player screens in some boxes. I uploaded the correct Zenagata screen to print out.

Thanks for the tip. BTW, as long as I'm on the 'praising Lupin' wavelength, your avatar reminded me of Cowboy Bebop - that's another modern classic that I doubt would have been possible without Lupin's influence. Just think of the two main characters in each of the series... not to mention the jazz.

Spike's character design is certainly influenced by Lupin III.

This is one of those games that I need in my collection at some point, if just for the mini-figures.
