That’s right people, after the successful UK launch of PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures last March, Bandai Namco have announced that PAC-MAN and friends will return later this year to Defend Pacopolis with New Worlds, New Characters and New Power-Ups.
Lucky XBox 360, PS3 and 3DS owners will be able to get their clammy little hands on the game in October. Not only that, but PAC-MAN will also get that rarest of treats an outing on the Wii-U! Could this be the game to kick the plucky little console that could back into the minds of new-gen gamers? Well, probably not but every little helps, eh?
Check out the official trailer right here:
If that wasn’t enough, find out more in this exciting official Bandai Namco propaganda:
Following the colorful characters and world of the PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2 will feature Pac, Spiral and Cylindria in an all-new storyline as they defend PacWorld from the ghoulish army of Lord Betrayus. Players will be able to explore the lands of PacWorld far beyond the bustling streets of Pacopolis and the Netherworld through the depths of the ocean floor and into space.
In order to defeat the havoc-causing ghosts, Pac will need to do what he does best… EAT! Chomping down on the various Power Berries will give Pac a much needed boost to fight back against his enemies. Utilizing the many types of Power Berries from the Tree of Life, Pac will be able to transform into many different and exciting versions of himself, including enhanced versions of returning powers such as FirePac and IcePac and epic new transformations including the gigantic PacZilla. Pac will also be able to pilot one of many vehicles seen in the show including the Lemon Rocket and Pacerchini, to help his cause to save the world.
Cylindria and Spiral also join in for the action, allowing players to take control of the Pac’s friends in special fast-paced on-rails levels. The two best friends will also be able to assist Pac with a helping hand when players find themselves in tough situations.
Sounds like a treat for you younger gamers out there. Anyone excited for this?
