Namco Museum is slated for release on the Nintendo Switch. However, the latest collection will contain one of Pac-Man’s more obscure games: Pac-Man Vs.
PAC-MAN VS. COMING TO NAMCO MUSEUM FOR NINTENDO SWITCH
The inclusion of Vs. was confirmed by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, with Gematsu translating the information. And Bandai Namco confirmed the information today with a new trailer:

Pac-Man Vs. is an oddity amongst the mascot’s resume; it wasn’t developed in-house at Namco, but instead by professed Pac-Man fan and Nintendo figurehead Shigeru Miyamoto. It was initially released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003, although it graced the Nintendo DS in 2007 via its Namco Museum.
In total, this iteration of Bandai Namco’s anthology series will contain the following games:
- Galaga ’88
- Pac-Man Vs.
- Rolling Thunder
- Rolling Thunder 2
- Tank Force
- The Tower of Druaga
The Nintendo Switch’s Namco Museum will launch later this summer. Until then, its reveal trailer can be enjoyed below:
