Namco Bandai has announced Pac-Man World Re-PAC which is a remake of the iconic PS1 platformer. The game will release on Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on August 26th.
PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC takes advantage of current gaming hardware to deliver a HD enhanced full screen version of the original game as well as improvements for more intuitive game play. The game has multiple modes with Quest Mode, a Maze Mode that brings classic PAC-MAN game play to 3D mazes, and a complete version of the original game in Original Mode that players can unlock by completing the main game. In the main Quest Mode experience, players use a variety of attacks and abilities, including powerups, as they run, jump, solve puzzles, and of-course chomp their way through six exciting worlds of Ghost Island. PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC brings back a wonderfully original world of adventure for PAC-MAN, where our hero is now chasing the Ghosts to rescue PAC-MOM, PAC-BOY, PAC-SIS, Professor PAC, PAC-BUDDY, and Pooka from their clutches only to discover a new nemesis in the dreaded TOC-MAN.
This was one of my favourite platformers growing up, and not only the best Pac-Man games, but also one of the best platformers in my opinion, so I personally can’t wait to replay it.
