Today Namco Bandai announced Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, a new platformer game coming for Wii U, 3DS, Xbox 360 and PS3. The game is based on the animated series originally created by Avi Arad and will take place in the Pac-World universe, which finds itself in trouble from the Netherworld ghost leader, Betrayus. What do you think of the reveal? Are you interested at all? Let us know in the comments below. local_offer namco bandai Nintendo pac-man and the ghostly adventures wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman?

This is way to bad to be released on a HD console. Morits Lian eShop title would fit. Clel We didn’t ask for this, Namco. Zorpix well, if it was released for all but Wii U, we would’ve never heard the end of it. Javy G We need a DBZ game! The Clockwork Being More like Tales of game. Revolution5268 YEAH!!! Guhtere http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYA6Y67NXMc Chris Bingham I like Mario, I like Sonic, but when it comes down to my number favourite character… Pacman is always No.1!! Super Buu I would’ve preferred something along the lines of Pacman World 2 but, let’s give it a try. Antar Rodríguez i would rather get a new tales of series game for wii u Evang3los please yes!!! The Clockwork Being Well most tales games are release on Nintendo console before coming to other console so it is possible. But they should bring the tales games on the Virtual Console or at least make a new one for the Wii U Edit:It makes me mad. The Tales of games are released on Nintendo consoles in Japan only than when they come to Sony consoles they are released worldwide. They should release the games on the Virtual Consoles if possible bt for a new tales game make them come in freakin North America when put on Nintendo consoles and not make them worldwide for Sony only. Antar Rodríguez Namco is developing a tales of symphonia HD remake but i think it will only come out for ps3 or so i´ve seen Antar Rodríguez it will also have the wii exclusive sequel (dawn of the new world) wich i personally think is one more reason to just been developed for ps3 (only blueray discs have that much capacity tu have both games) Ashley King Frankly I’d rather see Namco Bandai working on getting more games from Japan onto the Wii U, similarly to what they did with Ni No Kuni on the PS3. Would be great on the Wii U and it’s still my top want of any RPG to come to Wii U. D.M.T I think it’s just a matter of time before we see Ni No Kuni or another Japanese game from Namco on Wii U. There’s no reason not to make a Ni No Kuni game for Wii U. Evang3los tales of……….. The Clockwork Being Yeah that makes me mad. The Tales of games are released on Nintendo consoles in Japan only than when they come to Sony consoles they are released worldwide. Ducked What would be even better is if Nintendo can get Square Enix to make Kingdom Hearts for the Wii U. John Andalora Not to sound harsh, but…. No, I’m going to be harsh. This game looks boring, repetitive and unimaginative. Frankly, Namco has been disappointing me so much recently. Ashley King On their in house titles, sure. But stuff they’re publishing in America/Europe from Japan has been amazing. bizzy gie Why is Wii U the last logo on there? Seriously. Why did it come after both Namco logos too? ezquimacore Call Alex Jones…It’s a conspiracy!!! sdmac200600 It’s just a logo. D.M.T This is one game that I will NOT buy. I’m sorry but I’m going to collect great games, not average at best games like this one. I’m not even a Pac Man fan lol Henk What did I just saw? -.- Funny music btw. LunarNinja Dear God… It better be as good as the Pac-Man World trilogy… Cuz’ the new Pac-Man makes me cringe looking at him… But that’s just me. Wayne Beck I’m not sure what I just saw but.. Uh.. Yeah.. Never Judge a game by it’s Youtube Trailer?.. or Terrible Bubblegum Techno? The Clockwork Being I think this confirm Pac-Man for Super Smash Bros. 4 Edit: It is a multiplatform game no need to what I said. Chris Bingham Actually, Snake was on the PlayStation yet he appeared in Super Smash Brothers Brawl so Pac-Man might be in the next Super Smash Bros The Clockwork Being The reason Snake appeared in Brawl was because the last game in which he was about to appear(MGS 4:GOP) was gonna be his last appearance. His creator kinda begged for his inclusion in Brawl(not trying to insult the guy I respect for his work but begged is the right word). I hope that Kojima brings the Metal Gear Series to Wii U because Snake inclusion in Brawl was a big favor. In all honesty Pac-Man in the Next SSB would be nothing but good for both SSB and the character itself(oh and the fans). Plus out of all the Namco Bandai character he has a high chance of appearing in the Next SSB Guhtere Snake is actually closer to Sony than he is to Nintendo. If you only count the main Solid series, Nintendo only got two games, and they were both remakes. It’s actually really surprising that we got Snake. Nintendo didn’t even want Snake, Hideo Kojima begged Nintendo for them to put him in Smash Bros. The Clockwork Being And now Kojima has to do a favor back thats how I see it. Why not bring a HD collection of all the Metal Gear Solid games+the 2 new games coming out. That would be good as a favor back and they’d make tons of money. Sylux Actually there are three metal gear games on N consoles, the most recent was the remake of snake eater 3D on the 3DS. Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 where both released on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES obviously 😉 ) then he also made an appearance in smash brothers brawl, but you referred to 2 remakes released on N Systems? Which is the second one then, as I honestly don’t know which one it would be. But if there is another remake that means 4 games where released on N systems, 2 original games (metal gear 1 and 2) and 2 remakes of which one is Snake Eater 3D ICHI Twin Snakes on GameCube, it was great 🙂 Sylux Ah ik thanks I honestly didn’t know a metal gear game(remake) was launced on the GC (I’m deeply ashamed) ICHI I dont think many people did, I would like it to get a VC release so more could enjoy it. That and the resi evil remake (and to some extent resi zero) Chris Bingham Actually there was one solid game on the GameCube, Twin Snakes Guhtere Yeah, and it’s a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. ICHI Snake appeared in brawl after the release of the twin snakes metal gear solid remake (with mgs2 visuals and controls) and he started on Nintendo systems Super Buu I don’t think Nintendo will say ”No” to having the two biggest mascots in the industry beating each-other up. juancamiloarq It’s a wannabe-Mario Pac-Man. disqus_1F4cA1IGrZ Well, I loved pac man world two to death, and world three wasn’t that bad, but I’m gonna wait on the reviews for this one before I consider buying it tronic307 Why wait? I’ll give it a 4.5/10 right now! Revolution5268 5/10 tronic307 This ain’t Pac-Man, this is wack, man. I think I’ll stick with Pac-Man Championship Edition DX! Michael Jurado well … it definitely isn’t a system seller but i’ll at least give it a chance… gamefly!! lmao fireheartis1 Dude I loved the cartoon series as a kid. This game looks amazing and all the hate it’s getting from some of you is ridiculous. This is going to be a day one buy for me. Long live Pac-Man one of the greatest characters ever. Pac-World was so awesome and the cartoon was freaking funny as heck. Trevin True gamer right here.Seriously though, these guys are judging the game before even playing it, they’re no better than fanboys 🙁 fireheartis1 Dude you are absolutely right. They all sound like fanboys who think everything needs to look real blah blah blah. Who care about “realism when you can have great game, and the graphics aren’t even that bad. It looks like a 3D version of the cartoon really. To me that’s very awesome. Devin Christopher Norris Pac-Man ripping off Mario Galaxy and De Blob? No thanks. Micks610 I am a very gameplay over graphics guy, but seriously Namco, this is a next-gen console, I am pretty sure you can do better than this. And also, the gameplay doesn’t look that great either, it sure as hell reminded me of Super Mario Galaxy and De Blob. Thanks but no thanks. PS: If this game gets a 60$ price tag, I am done with this planet. Peter Rogers Hurry up zelda The Clockwork Being Hmm these graphics shown on the picture are possible on the Wii U The Cockwork Being Theses graphics shown in the video are crap (THE PAC-MAN GAME) The master sword is so legit though! I The Clockwork Being You are the fake clock work being(GUYS CHECK THE COMMENTS AND THE UPVOTES 1005 votes for me, 281 comments) Ashley please can you take care of this troll Edit:Nevermind this guy is mocking me with his different name. No need to take care of this troll. Silent Dude…look at the name. Highrevz Yep…. i lol’d The Clockwork Being …Dude this guy is mocking me bad. As soon as you mentioned that I started laughing. Thanks for the laughs bro. The Clockwork Being Are you trying to mock m with the name? Waluigi Hurry up “Waluigi Moonshine” Squid No. Clel YES William Cole That, sir, is funny. Ace J is……is this real??? Jamie Clabon no Dumbpants That’s my background for like everything. RockieOllie What are you talking about isn’t this a character reveal of Pacman fo Super Smash bros?? Dominic Coradazzi Fuck, I hope not Pacman just wouldn’t fit in (he’d stand out like Snake or Sonic still do in brawl Squid Klonoa is the perfect Namco representative. He still represents Pacman too. Adecentboy777 Zelda would do good to the system. Nintendo should have thought in advance and bring it as launch title with all the unique features instead they gave us Super Mario Brothers, which was not a big hit or system seller. Ravyu How bout’ you quit whining!! Peter Rogers How bout you kiss my ass Ravyu You’re gonna get the fuking game anyways.. This is just pure whiny crybaby stuff that bratty six year olds are reputed for.. Peter Rogers How did u know i was six. Hope u havent been stalking me u fuckin nonce Ravyu I never said you were six.. bizzy gie Isn’t this from the ad I keep seeing on this site. Peter Rogers Relax everyone uts just my wallpaper on my phone… Jeez u lot get excited lol Justin Rashad Thomas this looks fun not going to lie but games i want to see from namco include these tekken X street fighter tales of…… dragonball z [more like the budokai titles] ace combat naruto shippuden ultimate ninja storm 3 or new title Cerus98 I think they said a while back that they were done with Budokai games. The Clockwork Being Fall 2013. With all the games coming out later on with the respective console(PS4,PS3,Xbox, Wii U) I dont think a game like this will do well. In my priority, Wind HD, Watch Dogs, AC IV and Mario Kart are at the top. Lets not forget 3DS games. Ducked I’m very glad to see Pac-Man back, and I loved the Pac-Man world games. But this just looks abused. This looks nothing like a 3D Pac-Man should. This trailer is just disappointing. darkstar18 oh yeah its not like iv been wanting a Naruto for my wii u or anything..THANKS Namco.. grandlx2 Because its kiddie, it’ll probably do well on wii u. As bad as that sounds. Andrew Chambers I doubt it, I think most people that own a Wii U are adults. Ony I like the chara design but that “chomp” sound gonna makes somes peoples crazy 🙂 Alex Damman … here’s an idea. why don’t they just make a pacman game where he runs through a maze and eats stuff while avoiding 4 ghosts. you know, like he used to? Miles Phillips Hmm perhaps they are planning on hyping up a character(Pac-Man) for appearance in a certain fighting game they are helping develop. The Clockwork Being Ofcourse Pac-Man would be good for The next Dragon Ball Z fighting game Miles Phillips ? haha I meant Super Smash Bros U. Silent I would rather have him In DBZ. Thats what he meant. discuss I would consider this ugly for the normal Wii. Ryan House Still don’t believe Pac-Man belongs in 3D LopsidedPasta A console port of pac-man. Those always turn out great! Right? …Right? Mr. Nick I betcha there will be an unlockable where you can play the original Pac-Man. RoadyMike I really hope the munching won’t actually be as loud is it is in this trailer.It got annoying fast… Namco Bandai brought Pac Man back(?).Now its Megaman’s turn CAPCOM! ICHI Errrr where’s my new Ridge Racer and Dark Souls 2 news!!! david jarman I don’t care! I want it! I like it! It looks fun! And that’s what I want! GuardiansFan this looks like a cheap rip off of mario galaxy (because of him being sent from location to location in the air)…the graphics suck but i guess the young kids its aimed for might not care….looks like something the original wii could produce so ouch $41809923 yes i would play this game Jake Barnett I bet this is so a Pac-Man Tie in for smash brothers in more relevant? With Namco helping with Smash and all. (Assuming they want pac-man in the game in the first place) DemonRoach Why are the graphics so shitty? Revolution5268 because its multiport, this is the 360 version fool. jay sweet sweet irony! Kevin Sepulveda Uhm……..Pacman should stay in his 2 dimendsional world. link2nintendo Who want’s to bet that this is somehow linked to them wanting Pac-Man in Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS, and wanted to reintroduce him with new abilities to use in the game?? Silent If there is strong advertisement by Nintendo then, Yes, Im afraid they are doing it. Dammit. Arthur Jarret He can be in SSB4, IMO… but only 8 bit, as an assist trophy (army of pacman or ghosts similar to the excitebike or advance wars assist in SSBB) or weapon (just a thrown thing that says ‘wakka’ when hitting the enemy, with a 10% chance to turn mega-pill while thrown to send an enemy flying). As a character; I hope not. As a character who looks like this game; Raaaage! GeekDaddy Not going to lie…. This looks like crap. Cerus98 The 3DS version will be a side scroller. Far different than the 3D version for the Wii U and PS360. Cerus98 Don’t gripe about early trailer graphics for a game five or more months away. Remember colonial marines? It looked amazing in the ads and trailers but the game launched and it looked like shit. Squid Pac is back and he looks… ADORKABLE! scarlet I think that they should change the sound when he’s eating something from “Chomp” to the classic “Wakka” sound. Jim Mack Lame Silent Whatever you do, just dont put pacman on SSB4. IMO. Silent The level stupidity of this game is Pedro Natera That Pac-Man is Ugly AF Adecentboy777 This game looks pretty boring 🙁 Graphics –> huh, no thanks, my iphone can do better. Versatility –> nope, always do the same, jump at eat the ghosts. Huh, another crap game. Worthless and just waste of time. Kamon Did they make this just to put Pac-Man in SSB? val berger I wonder if the music is intended to be just as 1990ish as the brand ;D Daniel Gonzalez Was never a big fan of Pac-Man back in the day and that hasn’t changed even today. andré i loove the mario 64 style type of games.!!! Arthur Jarret To everyone complaining this game looks terrible: Please note it is not Wii U exclusive, but it is coming to PS3 and Xbox360 too. This is, like, the best those systems can handle. Revolution5268 meh Matthew Stapleton Reminds me of a Kirby game $39063977 forget about it Nintendofreak bring memories of the ps1 game……my favorite pacman game to date MTGSWE How can most people complain when you not even played the game yet??? Duke Togo i might have 2 get this wen it comes it looks gd William Cole Wow Namco… why is Pac Man so ugly? At least try to copy good 3D action games like Super Mario Galaxy or something. Why does this game just look like it’s going to be bad? Antar Rodríguez Namco is developing a tales of symphonia HD remake but i think it will only come out for ps3 Antar Rodríguez it will also have the wii exclusive sequel (dawn of the new world) wich i personally think is one more reason to just been developed for ps3 (only blueray discs have that much capacity to have both games) Jizz Beard thePirate Its Waka Wake you noob… not Crunch Crunch crocodileman94 I seriously doubt those are the Wii U graphics. Nolan ArchLord This looks awful.
