Pac-Land and Pac-Man Collection Chomp Onto North American Wii U Virtual Console
Posted by Jake Shapiro
Part of Nintendo's 30% off E3 eShop promotion
Hot off the heels of Pac-Man's announcement as a playable character in the new Super Smash Bros, two Pac-classics have popped up on the North American Wii U Virtual Console, and you can snag 'em for 30% off as they join Nintendo's eShop promotion for E3-related games: Pac-Land on NES (on sale for $3.49) and Pac-Man Collection on Game Boy Advance (on sale for $4.89).
Pac-Land, originally released to arcades in 1984, is notable for its North American Virtual Console appearance because it never got released on NES; it's a Famicom import. 2001's Pac-Man Collection is a compilation of four Pac-titles: Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, the Pac-Man remake Pac-Man Arrangement, and the puzzler Pac-Attack – it looks to be the best bang for your buck if you want to pick up some pellet-chomping goodness.
We'll be sure to review both games in the near future, but in the meantime will you be picking up either of these Namco classics? Let us know in the comments below!
