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.
