Last week, a special bonus game was revealed for Namcot Collection. Those who purchase all ten games in the collection will receive a retro remake of Pac-Man Championship Edition from 2007.

M2, the studio behind the SEGA Ages games and 3D Classics titles is actually behind that version. Director Naoki Horii shared more about the project and said that it actually started out as a 3DS release. The team has ultimately been working on it for nearly five years.

Horii said the following on Twitter, as translated by Siliconera:

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.

Bandai Namco has come up with a unique incentive to pick up all ten launch titles for Namcot Collection. As a special bonus, players will receive a retro demake of 2007’s Pac-Man Championship Edition.

Namcot Collection itself will also come with a few neat features, which Bandai Namco detailed today. These include the ability to suspend and resume play at any time, a rewind function, and a “screen function” to change the screen display format.

Namcot Collection launches for Switch in Japan via the eShop on June 18 where players can pick and choose the titles they wish to purchase. A physical version will also be available.
