Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Announced
Namco Bandai today announced Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming this fall for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, with an exclusive side-scrolling version of the game coming to the Nintendo 3DS.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures follows the storyline and characters from the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, director and founder of Marvel Studios. The animated TV series will begin airing on Disney XD. The game revolves around the universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their leader Betrayus, 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.
Not only will Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures feature a revamped Pac-Man universe, but it will also hearken back to Pac-Man origins with classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original Pac-Man but with powered up variations, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.
