This has “remastered and enhanced” the Pac-Man World on the original PlayStation, now receiving “an HD enhanced full-screen version of the original game as well as improvements for more intuitive gameplay.”
After Pac-Man sets out to rescue Pac-Mom, Pac-Boy, Pac-Sis, Professor Pac, Pac-Buddy and Pooka from the Ghosts’ clutches, he discovers a new nemesis in the dreaded Toc-Man.
There are multiple modes to explore in Quest Mode, Maze Mode and Original Mode, which unlocks a complete version of the original game for those that complete the main game. The Quest Mode challenges you to use attacks, abilities and power-ups to run, jump, solve puzzles and chomp your way through Ghost Island’s six worlds.
“Pac-Man World represented a big step in the Pac-Man franchise, taking the beloved character and fun gameplay to another level evolving this into a 3D platforming game. With Pac-Man World Re-PAC we are reintroducing an enhanced version for a new generation of fans,” explains Herve Hoerdt, Bandai Namco Europe senior vice president of marketing, digital and content. “We are excited to see people chomp their way through the colourful Ghost Island to rescue Pac-Man’s family and friends.”
Pac-Man World Re-PAC will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 26th August 2022.
