Bandai Namco Entertainment has been a very large third-party supporter for the Nintendo Switch, releasing both exclusives and ports on the platform. Today, they announced Namco Museum Arcade Pac for Nintendo Switch, a collection of two previously released Switch games – Namco Museum and Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus.
Namco Museum Arcade Pac is exclusive to Nintendo Switch. While it does not yet have a price, we do know that the collection will release on September 28, just a day after Dragon Ball FighterZ comes to the hybrid console. Abelina Villegas, Associate Brand Manager at Bandai Namco Entertainment America, had the following to say about Namco Museum Arcade Pac:
“Namco Museum Arcade Pac will take players back to a time when arcades ruled the video game scene without the need of a pocket full of quarters. Whether players prefer the traditional gameplay of chomping their way through a maze of Pac-dots or the updated faster gameplay of Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus, Namco Museum Arcade Pac is sure to deliver hours of fun to Nintendo Switch players of all ages.”
For those of you who don’t know, Namco Museum released on Nintendo Switch as an exclusive last July, and bundles together six classic Namco arcade titles: Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga 88, Splatterhouse, The Tower of Duruga, Sky Kid, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, Pac-Man Vs. and Tank Force.

Meanwhile, Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus is an enhanced version of Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 for Nintendo Switch. While the original version of the game released in 2016, this port came out in February. In addition to the iterative, but faster paced gameplay it introduces, Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus also adds a Switch exclusive two-player more.
