It’s about time Pac-Man dusted off his shoes and entered the gaming arena once more. Namco Bandai has officially announced a new spin on an old franchise, and it’s coming to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will be based on the animated series created by Marvel Studios founder Avi Arad, and will take place in the Pac-World universe that has been usurped by the evil Netherworld ghost leader, Betrayus.
Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures will feature a revamped universe, but will still hold its origins dear to its heart by giving the player classic ghost encounters, harking back to the original and nostalgic game. The title will be available on the Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for North America, Europe and Australia, plus a side-scrolling version of the game will be released for the Nintendo 3DS – a release date is yet to be confirmed.
