I'd define this Lupin III TV special as being barely something unique for a title considering the majority of the film is just animated content from three episodes of the Italian Adventures TV anime reused and compiled together with new animated content to loosely try connecting the plots of those episodes with the main plot of Italian Game. But this TV special doesn't do such a good job with cohesively putting together said plot as the cobbled together episodes lead Italian Game to often lose focus with its storytelling and builds up to a rather underwhelming conclusion when it's revealed who the antagonist of Italian Game really is. Just skip this and check out the Italian Adventures TV anime if you are looking for more cohesive storytelling involving Lupin and his gang's adventures in Italy.
