Nintendo has announced Pac-Man 99, a new multiplayer game that comes with the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service. As Tetris 99 and the recent departure Super Mario Bros. 35, the game pits dozens of players against each other in a match royale-style match in the end.
The game is similar to the classic arcade-original Pac-Man, but you can make it harder for opponents by gnawing on power pellets, eating ghosts and sending “Jammer Pac-Man” to their screens. There are eight different preset strategies you can use to screw with other players, for example by increasing the speed of the game.
Pac-Man 99 also has various themes that can be purchased that change music and graphics based on other Namco games such as Galaga, Xevious, and Dig Dug. That̵
Pac-Man 99 will be available for download tomorrow, April 7, and it will be free for anyone with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The game is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
