What just happened? Nintendo is trading one battle royale game for another as Switch Online subscribers will soon be able to play Pac-Man 99, a variant of the arcade classic that pits 99 players against each other in a fight to be the sole survivor.
Similar in theme to Tetris 99, players will compete in familiar Pac-Man gameplay but with a twist. When ghosts are defeated, they’ll be sent to other players’ games as a Jammer Pac-Man that slow down movement speed if bumped into.
Unique power-ups and new features can be implemented to get the upper hand on the competition. There’s also paid DLC that unlocks offline modes and classic Namco themes for those interested.
PAC-MAN™ is back in a new 99-PAC-MAN battle royale! PAC-MAN™ 99 goes live 4/7 at 6 PM PST, exclusively for #NintendoSwitchOnline members! #PACMAN99
