If you own a 16 Shot or played Adventure Island you’ve seen Takahashi Meijin. He *is* the main character in Adventure Island better known as Master Higgins in the West. After Hudson was absorbed by Konami, Meijin started making cameos in other games like Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2.
He’s in a special demo for Puppeteer too. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia just released Takahashi Meijin’s Puppeteer Rehearsal Version on Japan’s PlayStation Store. Puppeteer is a unique game based on Japanese puppet theater where you cut through a level using giant scissors. You can pick up different heads, but in this demo you play as a puppet version of Takahashi Meijin.
Takahashi Meijin’s Puppeteer Rehearsal Version will only be available for month. It’s free, but it won’t be on the PlayStation Store after January 5, 2014.
