The Pixelated Neon Joy of PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS Now Available Exclusively for the Nintendo Switch™
Team Up in Co-Op Mode to Bring the Popular Maze Chase to New Heights for Twice the Fun
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (February 22, 2018) – Leading anime video game developer and publisher BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced the launch of PAC-MAN™ Championship Edition 2 PLUS, now available in the Americas exclusively for Nintendo Switch™. Players will experience the critically-acclaimed retro arcade game reimagined with brilliant neon visuals and eye-popping, high-resolution 3D graphics on Nintendo’s hybrid console. The game includes PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2, which was previously released in 2016, and will also have an exclusive two player co-op mode called PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS2P for twice the fun!
The PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS2P mode gives players an opportunity to team up and play on a single Nintendo Switch, with each player controlling their PAC-MAN character on a single Joy-Con™. When one player gets caught by a ghost, the other player can come to the rescue. Players can also work together and use special co-op maneuvers to weave through the mazes and chomp their way to exciting boss battles.
PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS would not be complete without the return of PAC-MAN’s famous ghosts; Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde who will trail ferociously behind PAC-MAN as he gorges on precious Pac Dots. The game features a variety of modes to play at home or on the go, such as Score Attack and Adventure mode! Players can compete for the top spot on the leaderboards and strive to beat their high scores. PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS elevates the classic maze chase action and gameplay with fast fleeing fruit, remixed rules, and more!
"PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS provides perfectly bite-sized fun on-the-go for Nintendo Switch," said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. "New features and the addition of two player co-op mode elevates the already stellar gameplay, and makes PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 2 PLUS one of the best ways to experience PAC-MAN on TV, in portable mode, as well as in single-player mode or with friends."
