It’s A Party On Adventure Island

By Spencer . March 13, 2009 . 11:52am

A new Adventure Island game is being made for WiiWare. Takahashi Meijin’s Adventure Island has a jungle stage, beach stage, and… a 16 Shot mini-game? Test your button mashing, skateboarding, and light gun skills against others when you’re not scouting the island for fruit.


Special gold melon items act as in game currency. Trade them for tools at the item shop to power up Master Higgins. Over the last twenty years Higgins learned some new moves to keep up with modern platforming heroes. Now he can cliff hang and double jump. Will he have friendly dinosaur helpers too? Japanese Wii owners can find out in April if they purchase Takahashi Meijin’s Adventure Island for 1,000 Wii Points ($10). Hudson hasn’t said anything about an international release, but this isn’t the kind of game they will pass over.

  • Master Higgins!!! I’m not too fond of the pseudo-3D character model, but everything else sounds good to me. FURIGANA!

  • The 3D graphics don’t interest me but the rest of the game does.

  • This looks amazing, similar to the Gamecube version, which was great but this is more than just a remake, which the GC version was. This adds a lot of new moves to the character, looks good but hopefully it keeps the same feel for gameplay.

    The 2.5-D (?) looks kind of weird for an Adventure Island game, but I haven’t played the PS2 or gamecube remake, so I would definitely like to get this if it comes out on Wiiware here. What’s w/ the bald guy at the end, is he someone special (like a shougi meijin) or is the spot trying to be funny?

    • Oh you did NOT just say that. HERESY.

        Holy crap.. I just did a little search on Wiki, I had no idea there’s actually a Takahashi Meijin working for Hudson in real life, even though I’ve always known the title is “Takahashi Meijin’s Boukenjima”. My apology folks, didn’t mean to offend a legend.. 16btn press per sec, wow, like anime.

    looks like higgins went on a diet. i still harbor animosity toward this series because of my loyalties to wonder boy.
