Bandai Namco has announced Pac-Man 256 will be ported from mobile devices to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Unlike the Apple iOS and Android versions, it won’t be a free-to-play game. However, the console and computer variations will include 10 different themes and local cooperative multiplayer for up to four people.
The Pac-Man 256 console and computer launch trailer and screenshots show off the multiplayer mode. Up to four people will be able to work together, each one as a different Pac-Man, eating pellets and attacking ghosts. While it is a cooperative experience, each player’s respective scores will be shown under their nicknames on the left side of the screen. Each player’s Pac-Man is the same color, but there is a colored outline around each one to set them apart. It also looks like all Pac-Men will get a special ability if one player manages to grab it.
People will be able to play Pac-Man 256 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 21, 2016. It will be $4.99/€4,99, which is the same price as the Unlimited Credits option in the Apple iOS and Android versions.
