Pac-Man 256 Coming To PS4, Xbox One, And PC On June 21

Get ready for some nostalgia. Pac-Man is heading back to consoles!

Publisher Bandai Namco announced today that it is bringing Pac-Man 256 to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 21. This is the same game that developer Hipster Whale produced for smartphones and tablets in 2015, but it is getting a new multiplayer mode for its jump to more traditional platforms. 

Priced at €4.99 (likely $4.99 USD), Pac-Man 256 is developed by Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets and includes a local co-op mode for up to four players:

In addition to the social sharing option and 10 themes unlocked, they will be able to play with up to 4 friends via the local co-op multiplayer mode. Players will have to work together to eat all Pac-Dots & Power Pellets, and overcome the notorious ghost ensemble: Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. And of course the infamous “256 Glitch” from the mobile version is back alongside the crazy power-ups!

In a canned statement, 3 Sprocked director Seon Rozenblum said that his team just wants to see fans enjoying this latest version of the game. Pac-Man 256 producer Benjamin Prénom echoed that sentiment and said that it was the reason why Namco Bandai made the decision to greenlight the port.

“We wanted everyone to enjoy Pac-Man 256, so it was a logical decision to make it available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC,” he said. “The brand-new local-multiplayer mode, exclusive to the console and PC version, makes it even more accessible.” In addition to the console release, Bandai Namco is also planning a special discount on in-app purchases for Pac-Man 256 on iOS and Android as part of the franchise’s 36th anniversary. The company is cutting the price of the coin doubler and other in-game items.

You can watch the trailer of Pac-Man 256 below. I guess fans of this classic series will be delighted to try this game on their consoles. Pac-Man was one of my favorite games during the NES days. I just wish that Namco would also release a Vita version of Pac-Man 256, as I would prefer to play the game on my Vita. How about you guys? Will you be getting Pac-Man 256 for your PS4?

How many Pac Man releases have there been? 256 seems about right actually. I still have Namco arcade on PS3 so I'm good.

Edit: I know of the 256 glitch I'm just messin around.

The Multiplayer looks like chaos. I like it though.
