Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures Chomping Its Way To Wii U And 3DS This Year
Posted by Andy Green
Pac Man is one of the stalwarts of the video game industry and has been chomping his way through pellets and fruit since the 1980s. In modern gaming terms, he's featured in several games such as Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions on the 3DS, Pac-Man World on the GBA, Pac-Man World Rally on the GameCube and he was even playable on Mario Kart Arcade GP.
Namco Bandai has now announced there's to be another game starring the little yellow legend called Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures heading to Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There's also set to be a side-scrolling version of the game for the 3DS.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is set to compliment an upcoming animated TV show that will begin airing on Disney XD this Summer and it has you play through the vibrant universe of Pac-World, which has been taken over by those pesky Netherworld ghosts, led by their evil leader Betrayus.
Naturally, you take control of the last surviving yellow Pacworlder, and reclaim Pac-World once more.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will feature some throwbacks to the classic style of gameplay, with elements such as "Ghost encounters" making a return. Of course, you'll also have the ability to chomp away on the baddies but this time round you'll have powered up variations making it all the more satisfying.
The game is set to be released this Fall in North and Latin America and in Winter for Europe and Oceania.
