July 27, 2017

Retro collection features nostalgic favorites PAC-MAN™, Dig Dug™, Galaga™, Rolling Thunder™, PAC-MAN™ VS., and more!

 

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe announces that NAMCO MUSEUM™ is now available in Europe and Australasia via the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch™. NAMCO MUSEUM is a classic games compilation featuring arcade favorites including PAC-MAN™, Dig Dug™, Galaga™, Galaga™ ‘88, The Tower of Druaga™, Rolling Thunder™, Rolling Thunder™ 2, Sky Kid™, Splatterhouse™, and Tank Force™. The collection also incorporates PAC-MAN™ VS., a four-player game based on the PAC-MAN series originally created by Toru Iwatani. Nintendo developed PAC-MAN VS. in 2003 under the supervision of legendary game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto.

 

With NAMCO MUSEUM, Nintendo Switch gamers can relive the glory days of coin-operated arcade games anytime or anywhere. For arcade game masters, the retro titles (excluding PAC-MAN VS.) support an online ranking system, allowing them to view their standing amongst the top gamers around the world. 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.

 

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. A free downloadable app will be available via the Nintendo eShop that enables 1-3 players to join a multiplayer session of PAC-MAN VS. hosted by a Nintendo Switch system, allowing for full multiplayer sessions using two Switch consoles and one copy of the full game.

 

NAMCO MUSEUM is rated PEGI 12 and will available tomorrow for €29.99* through the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch.
