One of my absolute favorite arcade games to play on a lazy Sunday has got to be Namco Bandai’s Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. The game is absolutely amazing and adds a number of new, incredible game modes to the classic Pac-Man formula. The game has been released on console and mobile, but has yet to make its way to the PC. Namco Bandai has finally announced Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is now available on the Windows 8 platform through the Windows Store.
“We’re very excited that PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX is available on Windows 8,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “The PC has always been a popular gaming platform, combine that fact with the capabilities of Windows 8 and you get a great system for NAMCO BANDAI to deliver its most popular titles to an enthusiastic audience.”
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX includes a number of modes like Score Attack, Time Trials and Ghost Combo and will set you back $10. If you have a classic joystick as a part of your PC set up, then you owe it to yourself to pick up this game. If not, well, we still encourage you to play it as it will have you thinking of Pac-Man in a completely different way. Kind of like how Wicked made people actually care about the Wicked Witch of the West.
