Pac is back! PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming to Europe and Australasia this winter for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii U system from Nintendo. Built upon the timeless and wildly successful PAC-MAN legacy, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will boast an entirely new and exciting gaming adventure that is currently under development.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures follows the exciting storyline and charming characters from the highly anticipated PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, acclaimed director and founder of Marvel Studios. The animated TV series, based on NAMCO BANDAI Games’ classic PAC-MAN property, will begin airing on Disney XD this summer. The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World. Pac-World’s only hope lies in the last surviving yellow Pacworlder, our hero with a voracious appetite.
Not only will PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures feature an entirely revamped PAC-MAN universe, but it will also hearken back to PAC-MAN origins with classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original PAC-MAN but with exciting powered up variations in PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures,creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.
“As one of the most iconic and popular video game character, PAC-MAN has virtually become the symbol of our company” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice-President at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe. “As a wish to renew the PAC-MAN franchise and bring it to the new generation of gamers, we are proud to introduce a brand new concept in the PAC-MAN universe, with PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures”.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming to Europe and Australasia for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Wii U this winter. A separate side-scrolling version of the game will also be available for the Nintendo 3DS.
