Namco Bandai has announced Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, an all-new 3D Pac-Man adventure game, for launch across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and 3DS this fall. (The 3DS version is a side-scroller.)
The game follows the storyline and characters from the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures animated series set to being airing on Disney XD later this year. It’s set in Pac-World, whose denizens have lived in peace until the Netherworld ghosts, led by Betrayus, escaped their ghostly domain to take over Pac-World. As Pac-Man, it’s up to you to save it.
Ghostly Adventures promises a “revamped” Pac-Man universe, but with classic elements such as the ghost-chomping mechanics from the original game, now with powered up variations.
“The Pac-Man franchise has touched millions of gamers and non-gamers since its humble beginnings more than 30 years ago,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing and Digital Sales at Namco Bandai Games America. “With its long-standing history, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures emerges as a new and reimagined Pac-Man universe that still retains classic gameplay elements that will appeal to a whole new generation of gamers.”
