Pac-Man gets into Battle Royale with Pac-Man 99
If you thought that Tetris 99 or Super Mario Bros. 35 were the most eccentric and original battle royale games you’ve ever seen, it’s because you haven’t seen what Nintendo and Bandai Namco have prepared. It is a new competitive and survival game that takes the same formula of the two aforementioned titles and adapts them with the classic concept of Pac-Man games. The name of the game? Pac-Man 99.
This new battle Royale title will be available today, April 7, exclusively for all Nintendo Switch online service subscribers. As I’m sure you can already guess, here we will compete against 99 other players to be the last survivors while devouring pills and passing various levels of the classic arcade game.
As in Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros. 35, during the games, we will be able to use some power-ups that, in conjunction with a series of special items, will help us devour faster and send enemy ghosts to rival players that will make them lose. It sounds simple, but it will require skill and strategy if we want to win.
Although the game is free for subscribers of the online service, the title will also have some special paid themes. These will be allusive to several classic Namco titles such as Galaga, Xevious, or Dig Dug, and will be mere aesthetic items that will not affect gameplay.
Pac-Man takes over from Super Mario 35
Undoubtedly, the game comes to be a great replacement for Super Mario Bros. 35, a title released on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of Nintendo’s plumber and that was withdrawn from sale last March 31. This, of course, along with the Super Mario 3D All-Stars title and the special Game and Watch version of Super Mario.
