Today is a special occasion for our round, yellow friend. Today Pac-man turns 34 and I think we all should wish him a very Happy Birthday. His first outing was back May 22 1980 in Japan, and have grown through the ages. Now that I feel old, we can now move on to the news that he would like to share with us all.
After the success of the first title, Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, BANDAI NAMCO have today announced the sequel. Following the colorful characters and world of the PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures animated series, PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2 will feature Pac, Spiral and Cylindria in an all-new storyline as they defend PacWorld from the ghoulish army of Lord Betrayus. Players will be able to explore the lands of PacWorld far beyond the bustling streets of Pacopolis and the Netherworld through the depths of the ocean floor and into space.
In order to defeat the havoc-causing ghosts, Pac will need to do what he does best… EAT! Chomping down on the various Power Berries will give Pac a much needed boost to fight back against his enemies. Utilizing the many types of Power Berries from the Tree of Life, Pac will be able to transform into many different and exciting versions of himself, including enhanced versions of returning powers such as FirePac and IcePac and epic new transformations including the gigantic PacZilla. Pac will also be able to pilot one of many vehicles seen in the show including the Lemon Rocket and Pacerchini, to help his cause to save the world.
Cylindria and Spiral also join in for the action, allowing players to take control of the Pac’s friends in special fast-paced on-rails levels. The two best friends will also be able to assist Pac with a helping hand when players find themselves in tough situations.
