Nintendo Switch Becomes a Retro Arcade Cabinet with the Launch of Namco Museum

Earlier in the year Bandai Namco Entertainment unveiled Namco Museum for the Nintendo Switch; a title which contains a selection of retro arcade games, such as Pac-Man, Dig Dug and Galaga, remastered with improved visuals and gameplay options. Well today this ‘Retro Arcade Goodness’ is available to download for the Nintendo Switch from the Nintendo Switch eShop.

As mentioned this compilation features arcade favourites including PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder™ Rolling Thunder 2, Sky Kid, Splatterhouse and Tank Force – all of which have been redesigned and tailored to the Nintendo Switch console and it’s unique play-style options – including the option to play in portrait mode to offer that authentic arcade experience.

This collection also incorporates PAC-MAN VS., a four-player game based on the PAC-MAN series originally created by Toru Iwatani and was developed by Nintendo in 2003 under the supervision of legendary game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto. 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.

Namco Museum is available to download digitally from the Nintendo Switch eShop exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
