The Mode Unlock pack with CPU Battle prices $15 and you may change the theme to appear like different arcade classics with DLC
Pac-Man 99 is the subsequent last-player-standing recreation for Nintendo Change On-line subscribers following Tetris 99 and Tremendous Mario Bros. 35 (RIP), and you recognize what? Certain. I am down. There’s going to be a degree of diminishing returns for these nostalgia-mining pack-ins, however we aren’t fairly there but. (Or are we?)
Bandai Namco Leisure is launching Pac-Man 99 for Change On-line on April 7, 2021, and you’ll obtain it and compete towards the pellet-munching plenty beginning at 6:00 p.m. Pacific. Past the essential recurring battle royale idea, the sport can be throwing in enjoyable parts like ghost trains, which I am stoked to see after lately revisiting Pac-Man Championship Version 2.
To outlast different gamers, you will must clog up their screens with jammers by waking up sleeping ghosts, powering up, and tearing via trains. It is going to get chaotic quick, however that is the enchantment.
Should you aren’t into the concept of dealing with off towards strangers otherwise you’re simply trying to apply, there’s single-player CPU Battle, in addition to Rating Assault and Blind Time Assault, so you’ll be able to play offline. You can even swap up the look and sound of Pac-Man 99 with elective DLC themes based mostly on different classics. You will get all the pieces (together with themes) bundled collectively for $30, or spend $15 on a Mode Unlock pack.
Yep, I’ll have to purchase the Dig Dug theme for 2 bucks. There is not any resisting it.
