PAC-MAN is without a doubt one of those classic characters that everyone has either taken control of or at least heard of. He’s had countless adventures on all different platforms but PAC-MAN is nearly ready to start his next adventure, this time in the form of a television show.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures from 41 Entertainment has been given the greenlight to show in various European countries, including the UK. The channel, Disney XD has secured the PAY TV rights to show the new program in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. And so far have been given the go for the first season, with the addition of the second I would imagine, providing they see the numbers with season one.
PAC-MAN will also be present in Germany, Switzerland and Austria through the Disney Channel and Disney XD for both free and PAY TV customers. Series one aired 15th June 2013 in America and 22nd June in Canada and has been given a second series in the United States.
The story follows PAC-MAN as well as his friends Cynthia and Spiral as they protect PAC-World from the Ghosts, simple stuff. From the series PAC-MAN has gotten a game to tie in with series one, developed by Namco Bandai Games for the Xbox 360, PS3, WiiU, Microsoft Windows and the 3DS. PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures (video game) was released October 29th.
41 Entertainments CEO, Allen Bohbot stated
“We are genuinely excited for this broadcast exposure and expansion of our relationship with Disney in Germany and we know that the new Disney Free to Air channel will quickly become the kids’ market leader. We are thrilled that Disney XD will join the PAC-MAN family in the UK and Eire as well as the Nordic countries and last but no means least, Disney XD has commissioned season II in the USA meaning that all noted Disney outlets now have access to seasons I and II.”
