Bandai Namco Entertainment America is thrilled to announce the launch of PAC-MAN 99 for the Nintendo Switch.
PAC-MAN 99 is a reimagination of the long-running PAC-MAN franchise with an online multiplayer experience unlike any other in the series’ history. The new game takes inspiration from the battle royale genre taking players competing against each other until one remains.

Chomp down on Power Pellets to activate special power-ups and send Jammer PAC-MAN to opponents’ mazes to become the last PAC standing. PAC-MAN 99 is a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online* members at no additional cost.
In PAC-MAN 99 players will have to knock out other players by sending Jammer PAC-MAN to opponents’ mazes by touching a Power Pellet and defeating ghosts. Jammer PAC-MAN will clog up the competition’s maze and slow their PAC-MAN down, making it harder for them to avoid ghosts and clear out their maze of Pac-Dots. In addition to making ghosts vulnerable, Power Pellets also give PAC-MAN special abilities including increasing his speed or sending more Jammer PAC-MAN to other players’ mazes.
“PAC-MAN 99 delivers a frantic and fun multiplayer take on the storied PAC-MAN gameplay,” said Pearl Lai, Brand Manager for Bandai Namco Entertainment America “The quick pick-up-and-play structure of the game coupled with the play anywhere nature of Nintendo Switch makes it the perfect experience for anyone looking for a bit of good-natured competition PAC-MAN has always been known for.”
PAC-MAN 99 has launched with a paid DLC bundle available for $29.99 adding additional modes like an offline CPU Battle mode, private matches to play against friends, special score and time-attack challenges, and 20 alternate skins of classic Bandai Namco games including Dig Dug, Galaga, and more. Classic character skins can be purchased individually for $1.99 via the Nintendo eShop.
