The Namco Museum game collection will launch digitally for Switch on July 28 in the Americas and Europe for $29.99, Bandai Namco announced.
The company also officially confirmed the inclusion of Pac-Man Vs. following a reveal in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.
Here’s an overview of Pac-Man Vs. and the Namco Museum game collection:
Pac-Man Vs. is a four-player game based on the Pac-Man series, originally created by Toru Iwatani. It was developed by Nintendo in 2003 under supervision by legendary game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. 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.
