On Sale July 28
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. announces that PAC-MAN VS. will be included as part of the classic games collection in the upcoming title, NAMCO MUSEUM, which is coming to the Nintendo Switch on July 28th, 2017 in the Americas, priced at $29.99.
PAC-MAN VS. is a four-player game originally developed by Nintendo in 2003 under supervision by legendary game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, and the original creator of PAC-MAN, Toru Iwatani. In PAC-MAN VS., three players work together as the iconic ghosts and hunt down the fourth player, who has taken on the role of PAC-MAN, as they evade the ghosts and clear the maze of Pac Dots. Two Switch units are required to play as up to three ghosts play on one console and the PAC-MAN character plays on the other.
With NAMCO MUSEUM, players will be transported back to the days when coin-operated arcades reigned supreme, for a truly nostalgic experience. Through the Nintendo Switch, retro arcade classics can be played anytime, anywhere, and against anyone through the game’s online ranking system (PAC-MAN VS. will not be supporting online ranking system). Players nostalgic for the classic coin-op era can transform their Nintendo Switch into a miniature arcade cabinet by turning the handheld console vertically for a taller, slimmer screen that replicates the original arcade experience. The NAMCO MUSEUM classic catalog includes favorites from Namco’s classic arcade collection, including PAC-MAN VS., PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse, and Tank Force.
