Nintendo has announced Pac-Man 99, a new multiplayer game to be included with your Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. I like Tetris 99 and the recently deceased Super Mario Bros. 35, the game pits dozens of players against each other in a battle royale style fight to the finish.
The game resembles the original classic arcade Pac-Man, but you can make it more difficult for opponents by chewing power pellets, eating ghosts, and sending “Pac-Man Jammer” to their screens. There are eight different preset strategies that you can use to annoy other players, for example by speeding up their game.
Pac-Man 99 It also has various themes available for purchase that change the music and images based on other Namco games like Galaga, Xevious, and Dig dug. There are 20 in total.
Pac-Man 99 It will be available to download tomorrow, April 7, and will be free to anyone with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The game is exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
