Namco Bandai announces Pac-Man Museum, coming to Wii U and 3DS
Namco Bandai has revealed a pair of new Pac-Man games.
First up is Pac-Man Museum, which is due out this winter as a digital download on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, and 3DS.
Here’s the official overview:
PAC-MAN, the yellow 80’s icon with a voracious appetite that has transcended generation upon generation of gamers stars in this nostalgia-packed collection of games. In the game, players will need to skilfully dodge and juke troublesome ghosts while gobbling up all the pac-dots and power pellets lying in their path. PAC-MAN MUSEUM will include classic PAC-MAN titles as well as newer arcade releases, allowing gamers to play through the evolution of PAC-MAN from his humble beginnings from 1980 through 2008’s critically acclaimed PAC-MAN Championship Edition* and 2010’s arcade smash-hit like PAC-MAN Battle Royale.
PAC-MAN Battle Royale turns PAC-MAN’s classic pellet chomping gameplay on its head with multiplayer madness and will be available for consoles and PCs for the very first time. The ghostly mayhem breaks out of the PAC-MAN formula and features an over-the-top experience for up to four players with each player controlling a PAC-MAN character to gobble up pellets, fruits and best of all… each other. Players will chomp their way to victory through fast-paced maze action with the constant threat of both ghosts and opposing PAC-MAN characters around every corner.
Namco Bandai is also working on Pac-Man Championship Edition +, but this title will not be coming to Nintendo platforms. You can find information about it on our sister site.
