Namco Museum Compilations Bring Pac-Man, Dig Dug, And Ordyne To PS3 & Vita

Namco Bandai released four out of the six Namco Museum collections as PsOne classics in Japan. These compilations have games like classic Pac-Man, Galaga, The Tower of Druaga, and lesser known games like Ordyne. If you haven’t played Ordyne and like shoot ’em ups give Namco’s cutesy shooter a look.

    Just sell me Mappy seperately. That’s all I want.

    I’ve been buying these in disc form

      I only have the first 3 volumes (including an original black label copy of Vol. 3 with the Tower of Duraga hint book). I’ve had some trouble looking for Volumes 4 and 5, but I guess I could just skip the hassle and buy them on Amazon or something.

        I have a black Label 3 but it has the same cover as the Greatest hits version only like I said, it’s a black label. I’m confizzled.

    The PS1 Namco Museum games were the best ones. Sure, the games were ports instead of emulations like they are now, but they actually HAD MUSEUMS with interesting information about the games. They weren’t barebones collections like the post-PS1 games.

    But I guess I’m a hypocrite, because I play Battle Collection on my PSP quite often.

    • TheHolypopeofgaming

      50th anniversary was the 2nd best. Mostly because of Rolling Thunder.

    Japan-only, huh? I got excited for a second at the thought of playing the English-localized version of Namco Museum 5’s The Legend of Valkyrie on PS3 and Vita. Oh well.
