Namco Opens the Pac-Man Museum Later This Year

by on June 14, 2013

Namco Bandai decided to open up the vault at E3 on Pac-Man Museum, a collection of Pac-Man titles coming to downloadable services everywhere. As of now, Namco Bandai has only listed Pac-Man Battle Royal and Pac-Man Championship DX as part of the collection, but there will be more when it launches this winter. The only bad part is XBLA and PSN owners won’t get Championship Edition DX in what is probably an attempt to get them to purchase the already available game. Honestly, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is pretty awesome, so you should own it anyway. As a peace offering, CE DX owners will be getting a free update to CE DX+ this summer. DX+ will include Pac-Man levels inspired by other Namco classics like Dig Dug and Rally-X. Check out the screens below, first at Pac-Man Museum, then the new classic-inspired levels for DX+.
