Fans of massive multiplayer competition will be elated to hear the latest addition to the genre: Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle Chomp Champs.
The name of the game is surely a mouthful, and that pun is absolutely intended.
If previous retro games turned battle royal are anything to base our predictions on…
We’re expecting an absolutely wild experience that will inspire a lot of screaming at your television. And a good laugh with friends.
Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle Chomp Champs
Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle Chomp Champs is a 64-player battle royal along the same lines as the recent multiplayer games from Nintendo.
Those titles include Super Mario Bros. 35, Tetris 99, and the most recent addition: F-Zero 99.
Like those incredibly fun games, the new Pac-Man multiplayer experience will drop 64 players in the same stage to eat to compete.
We only have the short teaser shared on Youtube and Twitter today. But from what we gather, it’s familiar Pac-Man like stages where you must eat as many treats as possible while collecting unique power-ups and avoiding ghosts.
And there will also be other players running around attempting to swallow those same treats before you. Oh… and attempting to swallow you too!
If you’ve ever participated in the battle royal “99” style titles from Nintendo, then you know that these games are quick, insane, and a ton of fun.
We’re very happy to see our guy Pac-Man get his own adaptation into the battle royal genre.
Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle Chomp Champs is due to release in “early 2024”.
And the game is expected to release on PS4/PS5, Xbox S/X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Steam Store.
There has been no mention of price. But most titles in this genre are free to play. So we’re really hoping for a free treat from Bandai Namco.
