Bandai Namco has just unveiled the release date of Pac-Man Museum +, compilation of 14 PAC-Man games that will be available on May 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and Steam. The collection will also be accessible to Game Pass subscribers the day of its release.
Believing Bandai Namco, Pac-Man Museum + is presented as the fine flower of all that Pac-Man could generate as games in more than 40 years of history. In addition to the emblematic arcade game that has launched everything, we find titles like Pac-Man Battle Royal, who contrary to what his name can suggest appeared in 2011 on arcade terminal and not in response to a trend more recent.
The compilation also includes Pac-Land, 1984 2D platform set that released the character of his labyrinths filled with pac-gums and ghosts for the first time. Pac-Man also tried at Tetris type reflection game with the 1993 CAP-Attack before finding the 16-bit sauce platform a year later in the French Studio Kalisto Pac-In-Time. The collection stops on Pac-Man 256, imagined by Bandai Namco Studios Vancouver in 2015, which revisted the concept of Toru Iwatani with some surprises.
Players can navigate between the Pac-Man Museum + games while walking through an arcade room interface, which can be customized for terminals or decorations. A progress system based on the accomplishment of missions will reward players with parts that will unlock other missions or objects that players will be able to place in their virtual arcade.
