NAMCO BANDAI GAMES AMERICA INC. ANNOUNCES PAC-MAN™ AND THE GHOSTLY ADVENTURES TO BE RELEASED IN THE AMERICAS

PAC-MAN® Returns to the Gaming Stage with a New Spin on the Revered Franchise

SAN JOSE, Calif., (May 14, 2013) Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. is thrilled to announce that Pac is back! PAC-MAN™ and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming to North and Latin American retailers in fall 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Wii U™ system from Nintendo with an exclusive side-scrolling version of the game coming to the Nintendo 3DS® fall of 2013. Built upon the timeless and wildly successful PAC-MAN® legacy, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will boast an entirely new and exciting gaming adventure that is currently under development.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures follows the exciting storyline and charming characters from the highly anticipated PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series created and produced by Avi Arad, acclaimed director and founder of Marvel Studios. The animated TV series, based on NAMCO BANDAI Games’ classic PAC-MAN property, will begin airing on Disney XD®. The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World. Pac-World’s only hope lies in the last surviving yellow Pacworlder, our hero with a voracious appetite.

Not only will PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures feature a revamped PAC-MAN universe, but it will also hearken back to PAC-MAN origins with classic elements such as Ghost encounters. The Ghost-chomping mechanics return from the original PAC-MAN but with exciting powered up variations in PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, creating an innovative yet familiar gameplay experience.

“The PAC-MAN franchise has touched millions of gamers and non-gamers since its humble beginnings more than 30 years ago,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing and Digital Sales at NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “With its long-standing history, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures emerges as a new and reimagined PAC-MAN universe that still retains classic gameplay elements that will appeal to a whole new generation of gamers.”

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures will be coming to North and Latin America for Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 system, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in fall 2013. Currently there are no plans to release PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures in Japan yet.
