NAMCO BANDAI GAMES AMERICA INC. ANNOUNCES PAC-MAN MUSEUM™ LAUNCHES ON PLAYSTATION NETWORK, XBOX LIVE, AND STEAM THIS WEEK
Jump into the Maze Mayhem with PAC-MAN’s Greatest Hits throughout the Years
SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 25, 2014) NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announces that PAC-MAN MUSEUM is available in the Americas as a digital download for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and will be available tomorrow, February 26th, on the Xbox Live online entertainment network for the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and STEAM® for PC. Additionally, the endearing Ms. PAC-MAN will be offered as free promotional add-on content for a limited time.
The iconic yellow PAC-MAN has led a long legacy of providing sensational arcade entertainment for multiple generations, and the eternal race through ghost and pellet-ridden mazes continues to this day. PAC-MAN MUSEUM features a comprehensive collection of nine classic PAC-MAN titles ranging from the early 1980’s retro games to newer smash-hits such as the critically acclaimed PAC-MAN® Championship Edition™* and PAC-MAN Battle Royale®.
PAC-MAN Battle Royale brings the multiplayer madness from the arcades into living rooms as it debuts on consoles today for the very first time. The gameplay takes the classic PAC-MAN formula and turns it on its head as players compete against up to three friends with each player controlling a PAC-MAN character to frantically gobble up pac-dots, fruits and each other! Players will chomp their way through fast-paced maze action with the potential threat of both ghosts and opposing Pac-Men at every twist and turn to see who will be the last PAC-MAN standing.
“PAC-MAN is one of the most classic and recognizable video game characters in the world today,” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “With PAC-MAN MUSEUM, gamers of all generations can play through the evolution of PAC-MAN from his humble 1980’s beginnings through 2010’s PAC-MAN Battle Royale.”
PAC-MAN MUSEUM is available in the Americas via digital download on the PlayStation®Network and will be available on Xbox Live and STEAM tomorrow, February 26th. PAC-MAN MUSEUM has a MSRP of $19.99 and is rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB. Ms. PAC-MAN will be free promotional add-on content until March 31st and will become $4.99 after that date.
