The Pac is Back! Namco Bandai have announced Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures which will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, 3DS and Wii U this Winter.
This upcoming Pac-Man title comes built upon the hugely successful Pac-Man legacy and this new title will boast an entirely new and exciting gaming adventure that is currently under development.
The game will come following the storyline and characters from the much anticipated Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures animate series created by Avi Arad, founder of Marvel Studios. This animated series will be shown on Disney XD this summer. The game comes revolving around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World. Pac-World’s only hope lies in the last surviving yellow Pacworlder, our hero with a voracious appetite.
It will feature an entriely revamped Pac-Man universe and will also feature some iconic classic elements such as the ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original Pac-Man but with exciting powered up variations in Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.
Speaking about this latest Pac-Man title, Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at Namco Bandai Games Europe stated:
“As one of the most iconic and popular video game character, PAC-MAN has virtually become the symbol of our company. As a wish to renew the PAC-MAN franchise and bring it to the new generation of gamers, we are proud to introduce a brand new concept in the PAC-MAN universe, with PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures”
