Bandai Namco have announced that Namco Museum will be released in Australia on July 28th, giving players access to 10 classic Namco games, as well as Pac-Man Vs which was only released for Gamecube back in 2003.
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.
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.
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.
