Namco Museum Announced for July Release on Nintendo Switch

Bandai Namco Entertainment have today announced that Namco Museum, a game which will contain a selection of iconic Namco arcade games, will be released for the Nintendo Switch digitally during July of this year.

Specifically Namco Museum will be available from the 28th July 2017 within Europe and it will contain remastered versions of Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga Galaga 88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse, and Tank Force, in a single ‘retro’ collection. Additionally the Namco Museum will also include Pac-Man VS, a four-player game based on the PAC-MAN series, originally created by Toru Iwatani.

In Pac-Man VS three players work together as the iconic ghosts and hunt down the fourth player, who has taken on the role of PAC-MAN, as they evade the ghosts and clear the maze of Pac Dots. Two Switch units are required to play as up to three ghosts play on one console and the PAC-MAN character plays on the other.

Specific switch features of the other games have not been mentioned, but it would be interesting if the other arcade titles will support local 2-player when using switch controllers or switch joy-con.

Namco Museum will be available digitally for the Nintendo Switch from the 28th July 2017 within Europe.
