What If Pac-Man Championship Edition Were Made For The NES?

8-bit recreations are always neat to see and while some sites are buzzing about Guitar Hero recreated for the NES we’re going to take a look at a “Famicom” (note the quotes) version of Pac-Man Championship Edition.


Give it a quick glance and the video looks like bread and butter Pac-Man. However, this clip includes the modifications made in Pac-Man Championship Edition like the magic fruit that makes more pellets appear and the detailed statistics screen.



Stack that up to the original version of Pac-Man Championship Edition designed for the Xbox 360.



Now for the bad news. The “NES” or “Famicom” version of Pac-Man Championship Edition doesn’t seem to exist in the wild. A ROM for the conversion is nowhere to be found and unless the original creator is hiding it on his/her hard drive the video may be a mock up. A really cool mockup, but still a fabrication like a unicorn.

    What a cocktease! I’m betting the creator’s keeping a working version all to himself.
