Pac’n-Jump And Pac-Chomp Are Projects For Pac-Man After 30?

pacPac-Man celebrated his 30th birthday in October with games like Pac-Man Party and the Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. Aside from Pac-Man Tilt, which feels more like Sonic the Hedgehog than Pac-Man, the middle-aged dot eater doesn’t have any other games on his plate.


However, that doesn’t mean Namco Bandai forgot about their main mascot. Namco Bandai filed a trademark for Pac-Chomp in Europe. We also found trademarks for Pac’n-Jump in the Europe, Japan and the U.S.


Pac’n-Jump sounds like another Pac-platformer. Pac-Chomp… reminds me of Hungry Hungry Hippos. Namco Bandai probably isn’t thinking of that, though!

    rar, maan now I wanna play Hungry-Hungry-Hippos owo (my secret move is to shove my fingers down my opponent’s hippo’s throat). Seriously though I’d love to hear Pac-Man Battle Royale coming out on 360/PSN TwT;;

  • Smug look, “friends” flanking you who are also sporting smug looks, posing in a “i’m cool” kind of way…No Pac-Man, trying to be like Sonic is not the best way to go :|

    • They look more like their in a poster for a crappy Dreamworks movie.

        It’s kind of funny how Tim Allen pretty much set the face of computer animation with that look, lol >w<'

    • Code

      Although the notion of playing pacman with a spinball charge up is highly relevant to my interest.

  • Where is the image of Pac & Friends from, anything related to the article or a game?

      Namco Bandai briefly showed off a concept video for an animated series they were kicking around a while ago. It was pretty terri–I mean, different. Pac-Man is a high school student destined to become a legendary hero, if I remember correctly. They haven’t mentioned a word of it since, but that might be for the best.
