Bandai Namco has announced it’s bringing Pac-Man 256, developed by Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam on June 21 for $4.99 / €4,99.
Pac-Man 256 will allow players to experience the award winning mobile game on console 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.
“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” says Seon Rozenblum, Director at 3 Sprockets.
Benjamin Prénom, Project Owner at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe S.A.S declares “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!”
