Nintendo has adopted a very interesting and diverse strategy in bringing new titles to its flagship gaming console, the Switch. It has carefully introduced top end titles while also giving omage to older, more classic titles. Its recent move towards that was by introducing the Namco Museum Arcade PAC, exclusively for Americas region Switch.
The game was announced in the trailer below
layers will enjoy a 2-in-1 package of nostalgic hits including a collection of some of the biggest arcade games that started the arcade craze of the 1980s with PAC-MAN™, GALAGA™, Dig Dug™, and Pole Position™; or battle friends in Score Attack mode or square up one-on-one against a giant boss in the flashy maze madness of PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 PLUS™, all in the comfort of home or on the go on the Nintendo Switch.
NAMCO MUSEUM ARCADE PAC features Namco Museum classics such as PAC-MAN, GALAGA, SPLATTERHOUSE™, and THE TOWER OF DRUAGA™ along with ROLLING THUNDER™, SKYKID, and TANK FORCE. Additionally, the highly acclaimed PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION series makes its comeback to the Nintendo Switch® in PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS featuring eye-popping 3D graphics and over-the-top visuals, the latest version of the classic game takes chomping and chasing through mazes to a crazy new level. Players can enjoy this experience by themselves or with friends in an all new co-op mode, PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS 2P, available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. “NAMCO MUSEUM ARCADE PAC will take players back to a time when arcades ruled the video game scene without the need of a pocket full of quarters,” said Abelina Villegas, Associate Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Whether players prefer the traditional gameplay of chomping their way through a maze of PAC-dots or the updated faster gameplay of PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS, NAMCO MUSEUM ARCADE PAC is sure to deliver hours of fun to Nintendo Switch players of all ages.”
The game is available today on the eshop for $29.99 (Americas exclusive only).
