Italian viewers may already be familliar with special agent "Nix", a formidable foe for Lupin and the gang in the new blue jacket series.

Inspired by Ian Fleming's James Bond, "Nix" is a special agent who works for the British Secret Intelligence Service. Assigned to San Leo to protect the Prince of England on a visit, "Nix" crosses paths with Lupin as he attempts to resolve the theft of a fragment from the necklace of Marie Antoinette.

"Nix" is given the license to kill, and he goes after both Lupin and Jigen full force. The special agent will use any means necessary to recover the fragment, protect the prince and serve his country! He even drives a fancy, futuristic looking car which comes loaded with plenty of gadgets - just like a real double-0 agent!

Fans of the Yakuza video game series will be excited to hear that Shunsuke Sakuya will voice "Nix" in the Japanese dub of the show. Sakuya is known for dubbing famous actors such as Patrick Wilson, Ben Affleck and Mark Wahlberg, but he also voices Osamu Kashiwagi in the Yakuza video game series. In addition to Kashiwagi, Sakuya has also dubbed the Japanse voices of Alan Wake, Simon Blackquill from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies and Rin from Final Fantasy X.

Watch out for special agent "Nix" on October 1st, when the blue jacket show makes its début on TV in Japan!
