Also Known As
Toshiyuki Takahashi (高橋利幸), better known by the name Takahashi Meijin (高橋名人, "Famous Takahashi"), was an executive at Hudson Soft and the public face of the company from 1985 until May 2011. His rapid-fire skill in shooting games was turned into Hudson's 16SHOT (16 shots per second!) campaign , promoting Star Force and later Star Soldier; it included such items as the Shooting Watch, which would measure a player's button-pressing ability and compare it with Takahashi's. In 1986, Takahashi got his own game, Takahashi Meijin no Bōkenjima, better known elsewhere as Adventure Island, starring him as the main character.
