PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC remasters a PAC-classic

Hailing from the PSOne era, PAC-MAN’s sole 3D platforming adventure is coming back, enhanced and remastered with PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC.

Chomps in 3D

If you don’t remember PAC-MAN WORLD, well you’re in good company, if I do say so myself. And that’s mainly because I don’t remember it either. As a massive PAC-fan, that’s a little odd. But even if it somehow eluded my PlayStation-obsessed grasp back then, I have to admit it looked pretty cool.

PAC-MAN WORLD is exactly what you might think it was; a 3D platforming adventure. It seems as though it has more than a few fans too, making it all that much stranger that the little yellow guy never went that route again.

Whether you are one of those who remember the game fondly, or you’re like me and are intrigued by it, today’s your lucky day. That’s right, Bandai Namco has announced a remake dubbed PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC.

Re-PAC takes that original title and adds in “HD visual enhancement, gameplay improvements, and new features”.

PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC takes advantage of current gaming hardware to deliver a HD enhanced full screen version of the original game as well as improvements for more intuitive game play. The game has multiple modes with Quest Mode, a Maze Mode that brings classic PAC-MAN game play to 3D mazes, and a complete version of the original game in Original Mode that players can unlock by completing the main game. In the main Quest Mode experience, players use a variety of attacks and abilities, including powerups, as they run, jump, solve puzzles, and of-course chomp their way through six exciting worlds of Ghost Island. PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC brings back a wonderfully original world of adventure for PAC-MAN, where our hero is now chasing the Ghosts to rescue PAC-MOM, PAC-BOY, PAC-SIS, Professor PAC, PAC-BUDDY, and Pooka from their clutches only to discover a new nemesis in the dreaded TOC-MAN.

Bandai Namco press release

Watch for PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC this August 26th, for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the Switch and PC.
