If Pac-Man Kart Rally materializes it will be the first all Pac-Man kart game for Japan. Namco Bandai hired Smart Bomb Interactive to make Pac-Man World Rally in 2006, but that game was only released in the West.
Namco Bandai has some in-house experience making mascot racing games too. They co-developed Mario Kart Arcade GP with Nintendo, which has cameo Namco characters like Blinky, Mametchi (a Tamagotchi), Ms. Pac-Man, and of course Pac-Man.
