During the Nintendo Direct Mini, Bandai Namco announced a remake of the old PS1 classic Pac-Man World. This modernized classic would be called Pac-Man World Re-Pac. The Pac-Man World Re-Pac release would include revamped graphics, gameplay, and much more.
The original Pacman World was released on the Playstation 1 in 1999. The game is a 3D platformer surrounding Pac-Man trying to rescue his friends and family, who were been kidnapped by the ghosts. Players play as Pac-Man through six worlds to find and save them all. Those six worlds are Pirate, Ruins, Space, Funhouse, Factory, and Mansion. Within each of those worlds is a unique boss battle.
Pac-Man will do more than just eat when compared to his 2D counterpart. In this 3D version of Pac-Man, he will have skills like the butt-bounce, rev-roll, hover-jump, and more while still collecting his trademark Pac-Dots and fruit. He will also be able to collect powerups throughout the game. Some of those powers can include Pac-Man becoming invincible, walking underwater with a chrome Suit, and even becoming mega Pac-Man to defeat enemy ghosts.
Pac-Man World Re-Pac launches for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on August 26, 2022
This isn’t the first time that Pac-Man World has gotten a remaster. The second remake for the title actually occurred in 2004. This time it actually was the Game Boy Advance that received it. In 2013 the PlayStation Network at the time was running a feature where Playstation users were able to play old classical Playstation games. This includes Pac-Man World. It was dubbed PSOne Classics. After Pac-Man World came two sequels. They were Pac-Man World 2 and Pac-Man World 3. There was even a racing spin-off, Pac-Man World Rally.
