PAC-MAN World evolves in a pair of new trailers

Bandai Namco’s PAC-MAN World is coming back around very soon, as PAC-MAN World Re-PAC, and we’ve got 2 brand new looks at it in action.


Announced a short while ago, Bandai Namco’s revisitation of PAC-MAN World is looking pretty great. If you’ve never played the original, the PSOne-era platformer successfully brought the little yellow guy into both the third dimension and a fresh genre.

The Re-PAC edition looks to replicate that title, though the story behind it will remain the same. That sees PAC-MOM, PAC-BOY, PAC-SIS, Professor PAC, PAC-BUDDY and Pooka all kidnapped by the Ghosts and new villain TOC-MAN.

So what’s so “Re-PAC” about this new revision then? Well, although the story is the same, the new version of PAC-MAN World updates that original title for modern audiences and platforms. And that means you can expect new graphics and some new mechanics as well.

The Bomb Attack, Bomb Dot, and Metal PAC-MAN will all be back from the original game, but Bandai Namco is adding in a kind of hover move, and of course PAC-MAN will be able to gobble a Power Pellet. Doing that will turn him into MEGA PAC-MAN and put those Ghosts on defense.

That’s all in addition to a new ‘easy mode’. That’s kind of self-explanatory, though does add in something called “Easy Blocks” and extends PAC-MAN’s hover time.

Oh, and of course PAC-MAN World looks a lot different now too.

PAC-MAN World Re-PAC is almost here, and launches on the 26th of this month (August, 2022) for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the Switch and PC.
