Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures Is Most Likely In Development

By Spencer . June 12, 2012 . 12:07am

pacmanNamco Bandai didn’t mention Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures at E3, but it looks like an announcement about the title is in the works. A trademark and this logo was registered by Namco Bandai Games Japan in Europe.


Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures was registered for use with video games, ROM cartridges, and clothing. While we’ve seen plenty of Pac-Man hats, we think the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures trademark is for a video game instead of a footwear line.

    Ooh, I wonder what this could be. Here’s hoping it’s a successor to the Pac-Man World trilogy.

    Seriously… Namco, when are you going to learn that trying to modernize Pac-Man is an effort in futility? Plus, if any character of yours deserves a brand new game, it should be the one with the 15th anniversary this year.

      Some things just aren’t suited to genre experimentation.  Pac-Man doesn’t work for me as a character who has “adventures,” ghostly or otherwise.

  • Please be a platformer.

    Here’s hoping it’s not like that abysmal party game from a while back.

    Does Pac-Man really need to be done up for the modern era? When you think Pac-Man, you don’t think about an ultra-happy wide-eyed yellow ball with arms and legs, you think of the original faceless muncher from the arcade game. Championship Edition DX was a good way of modernising Pac-Man, by rapidly speeding up the gameplay and touching up the visuals. 

    Yeah, it was a download game and it’s harder to capitalise on those, but you could just touch that up with new mazes, difficulty modes, implement multiplayer or something and throw it on the 3DS. Boom, you have modernised Pac-Man.

  • Every Pac-Man game from Puck-Man to Pac-Man Party 3D has been a hit with me. This sounds like a platformer adventure game to me, I really can’t wait :)

    Also I hope more info on Pac-Man Smash comes soon…

  • What if it’s the name of the TV show coming up?

    I hope it’s a new game.

    Edit: The show seems to be called Pac-Man – The Adventure Begins, so maybe it’s not the show’s name!

      actually this is based on the cartoon of the same name. Which I’m currently loving. Please Note Disney XD canada sucks elephant parts and I’ve been worshiping at the church of Youtube
