Pac-Man 99 is Nintendo Switch's latest retro battle royale game


In 2019, Nintendo surprised gamers by turning Tetris into a Fortnite-style battle royale game. A little over a year later, it did it again, turning Super Mario Bros. into an intense 35 player retro platforming face-off. Now, the company has announced Nintendo Switch Online's latest throwback battle royale game: Pac-Man 99.

Like the Nintendo Switch Online service's other retro battle royale games, Pac-Man 99 asks players to outlast doezens of other players in the arcade classic -- but there's more to it than simply getting the highest score. Every time a player eats a ghost, it gets sent to another player's screen as a "jammer Pac-Man," which can lower a player's speed and make them a target for ghosts. Managing power-ups and carefully targeting opponents will be the key to outlasting other players.
