Pac-Man Vs. Is Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Pac-Man Vs. is a fun asymmetric multiplayer experience where one player plays a normal game of Pac-Man and three others try to stop him as ghosts. It's a great party game. Unfortunately, it was a hassle to set up when it first came out on GameCube, requiring the Pac-Man player to system link with a Game Boy Advance.

Today, Bandai Namco announced that the classic game is coming to the Nintendo Switch as part of their Namco Museum collection. The game still requires multiple pieces of hardware for full four-player multiplayer experience (each team needs their own Switch), but you can play by yourself or up to three players on a single console. Check out the announcement trailer below.

Joining Pac-Man Vs. in the collection are Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga '88, The Tower of Druaga, Sky Kid, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Splatterhouse, and Tank Force. For more details, you can head to the game's official site. The collection releases on July 28.


Our Take:
Pac-Man Vs. is a great Pac-Man experience that many were not able to play because of the additional hardware requirements. It's annoying that you to need two Switches to make the four-player experience happen, but hopefully a larger audience will finally be able to get their hands on this fun game.
