9/5/2010 9:01:00 PM
First there was Namco Museum. Then Namco remixed that museum. Now, they're Megamixing it. What does that mean? Well for one, Namco Museum Megamix is coming to Wii. While the game contains 18 arcade-accurate ports of Pac-Man, Mappy, Galaga and the like, it also MEGAMIXES six of them up with 3D graphics and new gameplay using gesture controls. There isn't a full list of the included games yet, but I expect we'll get the complete roster soon.
