Namco Museum Archives

As previously announced, Namcot Collection is releasing for Switch in Japan this month. Although there hasn’t been any news for the west, it appears that we should be getting an official update very soon.

Two listings on the Microsoft Store have popped up for Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 and 2. Information included on the pages sounds pretty much in line with what we’ve heard about Namcot Collection.

Here’s the official overview for both Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 and 2:

Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1

Take a trip down memory lane and relive the magical times of the 8-Bit era with a collection of Namco’s hits and long-lost treasures in Namco Museum Archives Volume 1.

In addition to 10 classic Namco titles, some of which were never localized and released in the west, a newly created 8-Bit demastered version of “Pac-Man Championship Edition” makes its world premiere as a bonus!
