Bandai Namco today celebrates Pac-Man’s 40th birthday with upcoming activities and partnerships to commemorate this milestone with fans.
As part of his 40th birthday celebrates, Pac-Man will be making a special appearance in a Minecraft DLC enabling players to enjoy Pac-Man mazes within the game starting today. In addition to Minecraft, no 40th anniversary celebration would be complete without new Pac-Man video game offerings from Bandai Namco starting with Pac-Man Live Studio coming to the Twitch game platform, in partnership with Amazon Games, which will enable four players to compete in one maze in an all-out chomp-fest to see who will eat the most pellets and survive the stage. Players will also be able to create their own Pac-Man mazes and share them with friends online or play the classic Pac-Man game if they so choose. Additionally, new Pac-Man games are on the way for the latter part of 2020.
