Namco Bandai announced recently that PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures is scheduled for a European and Australian release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U this winter accompanied by a separate side-scrolling version of the game for Nintendo 3DS.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will boast an entirely new and exciting gaming adventure which follows the exciting story line and characters from the animated series created by Avi Arad the director and founder of Marvel Studios.
The animation which is based on the classic PAC-MAN arcade title is scheduled to air on Disney XD this summer. The game itself however revolves around the vibrant univers of the Pac-World where Pacworlders live in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts lead by Betrayus, their wicked leader, 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 – that’s right, PAC-MAN himself.
The game will feature a completely revamped PAC-MAN universe as well as classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original arcade game too complete with powered up varations which create an innovative but familiar gameplay experience.
