imageFormer Hudson icon and 16 shot master Takahashi Meijin is helping Marvelous now. He’s going to be a special guest at an upcoming Grand Knights History bloggers’ meeting in Japan. Aside from being famous for his fast fingers, Takahashi Meijin is Master Higgins, you know the star of the Adventure Island games. Meijin left Hudson after Konami fully absorbed the developer earlier this year.


Marvelous is starting a series of Grand Knights History videos. This one showcases the game’s battle system.



Grand Knights History comes out on September 1 in Japan.

  • He picked one of the better publishers, that’s for sure.

    Looks great. Definitely interested in this one now.

    But, uh, is “sa” really a keyword?

    Why can’t HD consoles have turn based combat? Everything has to be real time or nothing it seems.

    That bit in the video where the guy empowers the female fighter’s sword with a spell in the middle of a fight, you never see that in a real time title. 

    On a more direct note, guessing with Master Higgins joining up, we can expect to see more bald characters who use their bald heads in devastating attacks.

    battle system is so flashy,after seeing this 3D games kind of disgust me now

    • Exkaiser

      I think that’s a pretty sad viewpoint to take.

      2D and 3D games can live together in harmony.

      • But… what about 2.5D games?!

        • Exkaiser

          Yes, they can live in peace, too!

  • Wow. She friggin’ DRILLED those hawks.

  • PersonaBull

    Interesting. From what I saw, you input everything for each turn at the beginning and then the turn plays out. That definitely makes grinding much faster since it has the skip option (don’t judge me, I enjoy perfecting a grinding routine in almost every game I play, regardless of how much I use it). I’m curious how you see turn order, as it would be very important in the input stage of each turn.

  • Holy crap…this game looks wonderful!!! I have to have it. I demand someone release it state-side. Chop chop! Oh, and I’ll have a drink with a little umbrella in it, too.

  • So cool!


  • With every video I watch, I want this game even more…
