Another week, another Arcade Archives release. This week’s game features a name that’ll be familiar to many but in an entirely different format.
Pac-Land, the 1984 game, is the next title being added to the Arcade Archives line-up. Yes, this is your chance to discover exactly where that Smash Bros. for Wii U stage came from.
Based on the American cartoon series, Pac-Land is a side-scrolling platformer where Pac-Man has to rescue fairies and return them to Fairyland. While there are no mazes to navigate, all of those staples from the original Pac-Man are here, including power pellets, fruits, and everyone’s favourite quartet of ghosts – Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde – along with Ms. Pac-Man‘s Sue.
You’ll be able to download Pac-Land from tomorrow, 7th April, off of the eShop. The game will also be available on Pac-Man Museum+, which is out later this year and is also getting a sweet physical edition. But if you can’t wait until May, this should keep you satisfied!
Have you ever played Pac-Land before, and will you be picking this Arcade Archives release up next? Let us know!
