Bandai Namco is combining two of their previous Nintendo Switch releases in a retail package of Namco Museum Arcade Pac this September. The package unites last year’s also-on-retail Namco Museum and Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus from the eShop.
The Switch iteration of Namco Museum includes 12 expected heavy-hitters from Namco’s arcade age, including the likes of Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Pole Position, and Galaga, but it also includes a port of the GameCube party game Pac-Man Vs, which can now be played wirelessly across four Switches or on a TV with four players (no Game Boy Advances or wires required). Pac-Man Championship 2 Plus, meanwhile, is an enhanced version of the sequel to the acclaimed arcade-throwback Pac-Man Championship Edition from 2007.
Both these Bandai Namco titles can currently be bought digitally on their own, so the Namco Museum Arcade Pac offers a convenient physical way of owning both, certainly for physical collectors. The compilation is out September 28th.
