08 Laserdisc Anime Games

Some of the laserdisc videogames that came out in the early 80's used footage from anime films. Note that while the game discs themselves are not commercially available, the movies on which they are based on are available (with the exception of COBRA COMMAND, of course).

1) The laserdisc videogame CLIFF HANGER by Stern uses footage from two anime movies starring Lupin III, a charming thief created by manga artist Monkey Punch. The movies used were:

- Lupin III: Lupin vs the Clones (a.k.a. Lupin III: Mystery of Mamo) - The Paris car/helicopter chase scene and the hanging scene were taken from this film.

- Lupin III: Cagliostro's Castle - All the other footage for the game was taken from this film. Note: this film is currently being distributed in the US by Streamline Pictures.

2) The videogame BEGA'S BATTLE by Data East used footage from Katsuhiro Otomo's GENMA TAISEN (a.k.a. HARMAGGEDON).

3) The videogame COBRA COMMAND by Data East uses anime footage created (by Toei) specifically for the game.

4) The videogame GALAXY 999 used footage from Leiji Matsumoto's GALAXY EXPRESS 999.
