PAC-MAN 99 now available on Nintendo Switch

Feel like another battle royale?

PAC-MAN 99 is a new battle royale title now available on Nintendo Switch, Bandai Namco has revealed.

Developed by Arika, the title is a new take on the fabled franchise in which players compete “by sending Jammer Pac-Man to opponents’ mazes by touching a Power Pellet and defeating ghosts,” Bandai Namco said.

“Jammer Pac-Man will clog up the competition’s maze and slow their Pac-Man down, making it harder for them to avoid ghosts and clear out their maze of Pac-Dots,” a press release continued. “In addition to making ghosts vulnerable, Power Pellets also give Pac-Man special abilities including increasing his speed or sending more Jammer Pac-Man to other payer’s mazes. Each ability comes with a drawback so choose your strategy wisely.”

The title is free-to-play, but does require Nintendo Switch Online to play if you want to go up against others. It also offers up optional DLC if you’d like to play in an offline CPU Battle mode.

PAC-MAN 99 is available now on Nintendo switch via the Nintendo eShop.
