Quick! Name all 4 Ghosts in Pac-Man. If your answers were Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Sue, then good on ya. Pac-Man had his own cereal, ice-creams, TV-show, board game, and much more to go along with his arcade and home console empire. Well, the little yellow pellet-muncher is heading back to the gaming world this Fall in a game entitled Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Hitting the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii-U, as well as the Nintendo 3DS, the game will be an all new storyline (I’d hope so – the arcade title didn’t exactly have a ‘story’ per se beyond they meet, they kiss). Here’s what Namco Bandai had to say on the subject:
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.
