Bandai Namco have today announced that PAC-MAN 256 will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 21st.
The console and PC release of the popular mobile release comes with new features exclusive to the console versions. In addition to the social sharing options and 10 unlockable themes, you’ll be able to play with up to 4 friends via the local co-op multiplayer mode. Players will have to work together to eat all Pac-Dots & Power Pellets, and overcome the notorious ghost ensemble of Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. And of course the infamous “256 Glitch” from the mobile version is back alongside a host of crazy power-ups. Seon Rozenblum, Director at 3 Sprockets stated:
We have really enjoyed working with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and Hipster Whale on PAC-MAN 256 for mobile, and having the opportunity to ship it on the latest generation of consoles and PC is the icing on the cake for us! We can’t wait to see how much fun players have with it
Benjamin Prénom, Project Owner at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe S.A.S added:
We wanted everyone to enjoy PAC-MAN 256, so it was a logical decision to make it available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The brand new local multiplayer mode, exclusive to the console and PC versions, makes it even more accessible: get ready for maximum fun playing up to 4 players at the same time!
