BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe announces that NAMCO MUSEUM will be available from tomorrow (Friday 28th July) in Europe and Australasia via the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch.

NAMCO MUSEUM is a classic games compilation featuring arcade favourites including PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse and Tank Force. The collection also incorporates PAC-MAN VS., a four-player game based on the PAC-MAN series originally created by Toru Iwatani.

With NAMCO MUSEUM, Nintendo Switch gamers can relive the glory days of coin-operated arcade games anytime or anywhere. For arcade game masters, the retro titles (excluding PAC-MAN VS.) support an online ranking system, allowing them to view their standing amongst the top gamers around the world.

Players nostalgic for the classic coin-op era can transform their Nintendo Switch into a miniature arcade cabinet by turning the handheld console vertically for a taller, slimmer screen that replicates the original arcade experience.

In PAC-MAN VS., three players work together as the iconic ghosts and hunt down the fourth player who has taken on the role of PAC-MAN, as they evade the ghosts and clear the maze of Pac Dots.

Two Switch units are required to play as up to three ghosts play on one console and the PAC-MAN character plays on the other. A free downloadable app will be available via the Nintendo eShop that enables 1-3 players to join a multiplayer session of PAC-MAN VS. hosted by a Nintendo Switch system, allowing for full multiplayer sessions using two Switch consoles and one copy of the full game.
