The lights are on
It's been a long time since Pac-Man starred in a new game, but Namco Bandai believes the time is right. Today the publisher announced Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and 3DS.
The game ties in with an upcoming Disney XD series of the same name, in which Pac-Man is the last yellow Pacworlder and, as such, is the savior of his entire race. The plot sounds more serious than the trailer below would have us believe, especially since our hero apparently has a bottomless stomach.
The home console version is a 3D platformer, and the 3DS version will be a side-scrolling experience. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will only be coming to North American and Latin America, and Namco Bandai has no current plans to release the title elsewhere.
Look for the television show and the games this fall.

It sounds like Doctor Who in a way, I can see Pac-Man looking at the supporting lady and telling her " I can't save them ____! It's the CURSE OF THE PACWORLDERS!"
i know i'm old fashioned when i just can't get used to him in 3D.
It's the game everyone was waiting for.
I didn't know there was going to be a Pac-Man TV series. The game does look interesting though.
I'll give the game a whirl when it releases, but I can already tell that munching sound will be the most annoying thing ever after a while.

One question. Do we get a slingshot?
