‘Namco Museum’ Is Getting ‘Pac-Man Vs.’ For The Switch

Posted by June 29, 2017 Comment

Namco Museum has been a hit over the years in its various incarnations and volumes that get released, showing of Namco’s best hits during the heyday and other titles they’ve developed over the years. But when the latest version comes to the Nintendo Switch in July, it’s going to have a newer favorite added to the Pac-Man wing.

Pac-Man Vs. is the four-player Game Cube and Nintendo DS title that came out in 2003 and was a fan favorite for a couple years, and you can draw almost an exact line of development from this game to the popular Pac-Man Battle Royale arcade game that came out in 2011. The game will officially be added to the Namco Museum lineup coming out on the Switch on July 28 along with Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, Pac-Man, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse, Tank Force, and The Tower of Druaga.

Aside from the obvious missing addition of Pac-Man Battle Royale, which came out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2014, there’s no sign of Ms. Pac-Man, another favorite that fans were anxious to see added to the collection. But to be fair, there’s a lot of sequels to favorites that weren’t included in this set, as it seems like it may be a simple introduction game for future Switch titles. But the addition of Pac-Man Vs. feels like a nice fit since (aside from mobile apps) it was a Nintendo exclusive title.
