Pac-Man 99

More DLC has made its way to Pac-Man 99, with Bandai Namco now offering a theme based on Wagan Land.

Wagan Land originally released in 1989 on the Famicom, though it did appear on the Game Gear later on as well. It’s a platformer starring Wagan, who can stun enemies using sound waves. The game did not see a proper English release outside of Japan back in the day.

Bandai Namco is celebrating the latest milestone in Pac-Man 99 with a new Warp & Warp theme. If you have the game, look for this under the name “Namco Classic 7”. It is entirely free to download.

Since launch, Pac-Man has been downloaded over five million times, Bandai Namco also announced this week. We had previously heard that downloads had surpassed four million at the start of August.

This week, Tower of Babel was added to Pac-Man 99 as the game’s latest theme, and it’s based on the 1986 title. It can be downloaded now by all players worldwide under the name “Namco Classic 6”.

About a month ago, a Tank Battalion was made available in Pac-Man 99. Prior to that was Hopping Mappy and Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti. Other available themes include Baraduke, Bravoman, Cosmo Gang the Video, Dig Dug, Dragon Buster, Galaga, Namco Classics 1-5, New Rally-X, Rolling Thunder, The Genji and the Heike Clans, The Legend of “Valkyrie”, The Return of Ishtar, The Tower of Druaga, Wonder Momo, Xevious, and Yokai Dochuki.
