Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today released PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX for Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points, the first title under NAMCO BANDAI Games’ new Namco Generations brand of downloadable games. PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX will also be available on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system’s PlayStationNetwork Tuesday, November 23 for $9.99. The follow-up to the award winning 2007 original, PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX takes the beloved PAC-MAN gameplay and twists it into one of the most intense gaming experiences this year.
PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX continues NAMCO BANDAI Games’ tradition of enhancing their classic arcade franchises for today’s gamer. Building upon the successful gameplay found in PAC-MAN Championship Edition, the new title features more mazes and modes than ever before for the most fast and furious PAC-MAN game to date. New to the series are the multitudes of sleeping ghosts that infest each maze.
As PAC-MAN runs past these ghosts, they become angry and chase him until he finds a Power Pellet. If a ghost gets too close, a slowdown effect will begin, giving the player an extra vital second to figure out the best course of action. If the ghost train becomes too much to handle, players can set off a bomb which sends all active ghosts back to the center of each maze.
PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX includes two exciting new modes in addition to PAC-MAN Championship Edition’s signature Score Attack mode, where players must collect as many points as possible before time runs out. Time Trials has players clearing out a set number of laps around each maze as fast as they can. Ghost Combo forgoes gobbling Pac-Dots for chomping as many ghosts as possible. Players’ scores are determined on the consecutive number of ghosts PAC-MAN eats while chaining together Power Pellets.
With the game’s hypnotic neon graphics, interchangeable character sprites and maze design, and PAC-MAN Championship Edition’s signature mazes, PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX is another great way to celebrate PAC-MAN’s 30th Anniversary.
