Namco Museum Coming To Nintendo Switch
Bandai Namco announced last week that the Namco Museum is coming to Nintendo Switch this year, bringing classic arcade hits to players, likely for the first time for many.
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, these retro classics can be played anytime, anywhere, and against anyone through the game’s online ranking system. With the ranking system, players can compete to earn the number one spot on the worldwide challenger board for their favourite Namco arcade classics.
This classic catalog includes favorites from Namco’s classic arcade collection, including PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, SkyKid, Splatterhouse, Tank Force and more.
Players nostalgic for the classic coin-op era can transform their Nintendo Switch into a miniature cabinet by turning the handheld console vertically for a taller, slimmer screen that replicates the original arcade experience. Namco Museum also offers a challenge mode, presenting players new and unique challenges for each game, giving classic games a fresh twist.
