Is Namco Museum Essentials A PSN Arcade Collection For North America?

By Spencer . May 25, 2009 . 12:00pm


A small collection of Namco classics are available on PlayStation Network in Japan. Namco Museum.comm includes Pac-Man, Galaga, Xevious, Dig Dug, and Dragon Spirit for 1,200 yen ($12). Each game has online leaderboards and unlockable Playstation Home reward items like virtual arcade cabinets that you can actually play in your personal virtual space.


Xevious Resurrection, a brand new Xevious game, is also part of the package. The final version of Namco Museum.comm is only available in Japan even though a beta is online in Asia. However, Namco Bandai may have plans to bring this overseas. A trademark for Namco Museum Essentials was registered in the US along with a trademark for Xevious Resurrection. Seems like a pretty good indicator that we’re finally going to be able to play Pac-Man in PlayStation Home and Xevious Resurrection overseas.

  • Wouldn’t mind Xevious Resurrection on XBLA as a stand-alone game like Galaga Legions. Because let’s face it, Galaga Legions is freaking awesome!
