Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions Includes Modern Remakes

Posted by James Newton

Including Championship Edition

The new motion-controlled games in Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions aren't the only versions of the Namco classics you'll be able to play when the compilation launches in May, as Famitsu (via Andriasang) has revealed there are a further four games included on the cartridge.

As well as the original arcade versions of Pac-Man and Galaga, the game will also come with the highly acclaimed recent Pac-Man Championship Edition and Galaga Legions, two modern takes on the classic titles. Galaga Legions is a neat bonus, and while Pac-Man Championship Edition is a welcome addition we'd rather have had recent update Pac-Man Championship Edition DX included instead.

Still, Pac-beggars can't be Pac-choosers. Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions lands in May.

Is this the same Pac-man revival game that was recently put on the Playstation store? If so I already know I'll be getting it. Looks like fun.

I'd definitely rather have CE than CE:DX. DX managed to strip out most of what I enjoyed about CE while adding gobs and gobs of stuff I didn't care about.

So I realize I'm in the minority by saying this, but...I am wholeheartedly in support of this decision.

Im with Chicken Brutus on this, I'd love to have all those games on the go, but my all time favorite arcade game was DIG DUG, and i'd LOVE to see a remastered version of that (Dig Dug arangements was pretty sweet)

I already have CE:DX and I love it! I may be getting this if it seems worth it.

Well, I only need one version of CE:DX, so I'm glad they went with the first one. Still, this is not enough to warrant full price, so I'm hoping for more. Otherwise, no buy.

CE: DX is one of the highest rated games on the xbox isn't it? CE is still decently rated in its own right. Also Galaga Legions is the sort of game that should've been part of a compilation in the first place. Anyway, I'm radaring this :-)

At first, I excused this as "just another Pac-Man and Galaga port," but now that the Championship Edition and a deluxe version of it are in the game, I will think twice about it. Pac-Man: Championship Edition was great on Xbox Live Arcade with its classic gameplay and colorful and modern revamps. I can't wait to see what it will look like in 3D. :)

Now we are cooking and I'm glad they listen to the fans. We get the orginal Pac-Man, Pac-Man Championship Edition, and Pac-Man Dimensions. Also comes with the original Galaga, Galaga Legions, and Galaga Diemensions. Six games in one cartridge might be worth the money especially if you are a Pac-Man or Galaga fan.

@EmpireIndustries: Try not to worry about it that much. Super Street Fighter IV 3D, while not the definitive version as was advertised, came really close to it's console counter-partners. I can see the same happening if Namco can put forth the same amount of effort into the 3DS port of the game, especially since Xbox Live games should be able to be ported perfectly much easier.

Was not really bothered about this but adding Pacman CE has bumped up my interest. I love that game.

Consider this higher on my want list now. Three different versions of my favorite arcade shooter and three different versions of the original arcade classic? Nice!

I might not get this one. I'll just wait for a review. I'm not to much as a classic gamer, but I'll still keep track with it. Why do I feel like it will be forty bucks and lack content?

I am definitely considering this game as part of my future 3DS collection (sadly I do not have the funds to buy a 3DS now.)

@28: have faith, homie. Maybe this will be one of those rare compilations with extra content that will make it worth buying. :)

Will maybe pick this up on launch day, But have to first figure out when Starfox and a few other games are coming.. Otherwise I don't care what they honestly give us whether it be DX or regular both in my opinion are good.

My two favorite Namco games, in one package. Sweet! I downloaded the demo of Pacman Championship edition on my PS3 and that game is sweet! Can't wait to play Galaga Legions either! :D
