The GameCube is fondly regarded by many, and one title that regularly pops up at retro game gatherings and expos is Pac-Man Vs. It was rather unique in how it utilised the wired connection between the GameCube and Game Boy Advance, making it rather surprising that the series didn't make a comeback on Wii U (using the GamePad).
It does seem like a comeback is on the cards, however, with Bandai Namco teasing an upcoming announcement via a tweet:
As site regular Nintendoforlife highlights, this tease bears a strong resemblance to an equivalent screen from Pac-Man Vs.
The original was exclusive to Nintendo hardware, though it has since made its way to smart devices in some forms. It's tough to predict whether this could be a prospective Switch project; on the one hand Bandai Namco has a close relationship with Nintendo, but it's also shown plenty of enthusiasm before now bringing Pac-Man to phones.
We'll keep an eye out for an announcement; would you like to see a new Pac-Man Vs. on Switch?
