Pac-Man 99 is a new Battle Royale game for the Switch


Nintendo has announced Pac-Man 99, a new multiplayer game included with the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. Like it Tetris 99 and the recently departed Super Mario Bros. 35, the game puts dozens of players against each other in a battle royale style to the end.

The game is similar to the classic arcade original Pac-Man, but you can make it harder for opponents by chewing on power pellets, eating ghosts and sending “Too bad Pac-Man” to their screens. There are eight different preset strategies you can use to play with other players, such as speeding up their game.

Pac-Man 99 also has different themes available for purchase that change the music and images based on other Namco games such as Galaga, Xevious, and Dig DugThere are 20 in total.

Pac-Man 99 will be available for download tomorrow, April 7, and is free for anyone with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The game is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
