Pac-Man World Re-Pac Jukebox DLC update

Bandai Namco has started distribution of new Jukebox DLC for Pac-Man World Re-Pac as well as a free update.

With today’s DLC, players can access a retro style sound test mode. A jukebox will be added to the in-game hub area of Ghost Island with over 50 songs from the game’s soundtrack. The English, Japanese, and Chinese language versions of the song “We Are Pac-Man!” are also included. This will set you back $2.99.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac producer Yuji Yoshii has shared a bit of insight into the development and graphical updates for the game.

Yoshii said in a recent interview that the project took about two years to make, and thankfully the process went “relatively smoothly.” He also acknowledged that the remake came about in part due to “the requests from fans for the return of Pac-Man World for so many years”.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 26, 2022
Developer: Bandai Namco / NOW Production
Publisher: Bandai Namco

It’s not a stretch to say that almost everyone who plays video games is at least aware of Pac-Man; the puck-shaped pellet muncher is perhaps one of the most iconic gaming protagonists of all time. So, while it shouldn’t be a surprise that of course he featured in his own series of 3D platformers in the late 90’s and early 2000s – those games were a dime a dozen back then – it was a bit of a left-field announcement when Bandai Namco revealed that the original Pac-Man World would be getting a remake. It’s a solid 3D adventure that has its fans, sure, but it didn’t leave a substantial impact on the genre in the same way that Mario, Crash and Spyro did. Sometimes, though, a game doesn’t need to innovate to be a good time, and Pac-Man World Re-Pac is a perfect example of how tight, responsive platforming and a dollop of arcade-fueled nostalgia can be a timeless, satisfying combination.

Gameplay footage has emerged for Pac-Man World: Re-Pac in time for its release on Switch today. Just over 27 minutes of footage are available for players interested in checking out the game.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac graphics comparison trailer

Original (8/5): Bandai Namco has created an official graphics comparison trailer for Pac-Man World Re-Pac.

The original game launched for the PlayStation in 1999, and needless to say that technology has evolved since then. Bandai Namco has gone back to the drawing board and reworked the visuals in many different ways, including the character models, environments, and textures.

Bandai Namco has provided information about what to expect from the frame rate and resolution with Pac-Man World Re-Pac on Switch. Details were posted on the official Japanese website.

Regarding frame rate, Pac-Man World Re-Pac can run up to 30 FPS. You should expect it to hit that mark most of the time, but based on the wording, it sounds like there could be the possibility for dips below that. Other platforms will run at 60 FPS.

Bandai Namco has provided another look at Pac-Man World Re-Pac, this time sharing the title’s opening movie. Interestingly, while the original Pac-Man World also possessed an opening movie, this new version is not a remake of the original’s and consists almost entirely of new scenes.
