The yellow 80’s icon with a voracious appetite celebrates his 36th anniversary with the announcement that the highly acclaimed Pac-Man 256 mobile game is now coming to home console and PC systems. Developed by Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets, Pac-Man 256 will be available digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam on 21st June.
Pac-Man 256 will allow players to experience the award winning mobile game on console with new features exclusive to the console versions. In addition to the social sharing options and 10 unlockable themes, you’ll be able to play with up to 4 friends via the local co-op multiplayer mode. Players will have to work together to eat all Pac-Dots & Power Pellets, and overcome the notorious ghost ensemble of Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. And of course the infamous “256 Glitch” from the mobile version is back alongside a host of crazy power-ups.
