Arsène Lupin III is a well known MSX game character. This character is based on a French book character from author Maurice Leblanc who published 21 books about this master thief. Now you can watch a new movie with Arsène Lupin on DVD at the rentals. The DVD will be released in shops starting July 12th.

The MSX games "Lupin III: Legend of the Gold of Babylon" and "Lupin III: Cagliostro's Castle" are both based on anime movies. The first movie "Rupan sansei: Babiron no Ogon densetsu" or "Rupan III: Legend of the Gold of Babylon" (1985), has only been released on VHS outside Japan. In Japan this movie has been rereleased on DVD as part of the "LUPIN III (Theatrical) DVD Limited box" set in 2003. "Rupan sansei: Kariosutoro no shiro" (1979) or "Cagliostro's Castle" has been rereleased on DVD outside Japan and can be bought at Amazon.com.

Hayao Miyazaki's movie "Lupin III:The Castle of Cagliostro" is a very funny movie.
Think it's only 10 bucks or so at the free record shop under the anime dvd section....must see Big smile

Do you think that this is really MSX related?

By the way, don't buy anything at eBay if you can download it for free and LEGALLY from Project Gutenberg:

http://www.gutenberg.org/browse/authors/l#a1358

There are several books from Maurice Leblanc in english and also from Edgar Jepson.
It is a shame that there is no such thing for MSX games :(

I think it is related yes, given the fact that two MSX games were based on the above mentioned anime movies. I thought some people might be interested. And since people react on this posting with nice additions, including yourself Smile, I won't hesitate to do so somewhere in the future Smile.

true dat sander...since 1 game is based on the movie,msx-ers should have fun watching it.
Might add more to the game I'd say...If SD snatcher was based on an anime,
it would have deserved a mention here as well....right? Wink

That doesn’t make sense... That would mean, a new ghost busters movie would be reported on msx.org as well, and what about a new Turtles animated series, or Back to the Future?

Sure, I would like to see those (well, a new TNMT... nah, unless it’s good), but I agree with pitpan that this is hardly MSX-related and therefore doesn’t ‘really’ belong on msx.org. But no-one died, so... I don’t mind. As long as you don’t make a habit out of it ^_^.

The last time I reported about a msx related movie, was about the Hinotori movie, released on DVD. That was on August 24, 2003. Habit?

Still, most reactions so far are still positive. If there is a new Ghost Busters movie coming out, you will be the first to know Grauw. I make sure of that. Smile
