A new online multiplayer battle royale game from nintendo has been announced. Pac-Man 99 will be included with the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. Like Tetris 99 and the recently departed Super Mario Bros. 35, the game pits dozens of players against each other in a battle royale-style fight to the end.
Although the game resembles the classic arcade game Pac-Man, you can make it more difficult for your enemies by eating power pellets, eating ghosts, and sending “Jammer Pac-Man” over to their screens. You can use one of eight pre-programmed tactics to annoy other players, such as speeding up their game.
There are also themes for Pac-Man 99 that modify the music and graphics based on other Namco games such as Galaga, Xevious, and Dig Dug. There are a total of 20.
Pac-Man 99 is available to download from today, and it’ll be free for anyone with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The game is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
