Far from being another stale, old-school mazey iteration, this game sets Pac in a re-imagined 3D universe. Will the gamble pay off?
Here is the trailer and the blurb:
Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. is thrilled to announce that Pac is back! PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming to North and Latin American retailers in fall 2013 for the Wii U system from Nintendo with an exclusive side-scrolling version of the game coming to the Nintendo 3DS fall of 2013. Built upon the timeless and wildly successful PAC-MAN legacy, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will boast an entirely new and exciting gaming adventure that is currently under development.
PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures follows the exciting storyline and charming characters from the highly anticipated PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, acclaimed director and founder of Marvel Studios. The animated TV series, based on NAMCO BANDAI Games' classic PAC-MAN property, will begin airing on Disney XD. The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked 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 exciting powered up variations in PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.
