Pac-Man is probably one of the most iconic video games of all time, and even though the younger generation might not have played, they at the very least can recognize its significance. More recently, the folks at Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets tried their hand at giving the game a new lease on life with Pac-Man 256, a game inspired by the glitch level in the 256th level in the original.

It is an interesting take to say the least, and if you’re tired of playing the game on mobile, you’ll be pleased to learn that the game’s publisher, Bandai Namco has announced that Pac-Man 256 will soon be making its way onto PCs and consoles starting next month on the 21st of June, for those wondering about the specifics.

The game for the most part will be similar to the mobile version, except that it will gain some new features. One of those new features is the option to play local co-op or multiplayer mode where up to four friends can play and compete against each other. It will also include social sharing features, for those of you who enjoy a bit of bragging every now and then, and also themes that gamers can unlock as they progress in the game.

It will be arriving on consoles like the PS4 and Xbox One and the PC, although there is no word on how much it will cost. The mobile version is free so if you haven’t checked it out yet, head on over to the iTunes App Store or Google Play to check it out, or watch the trailer above to see the PC and console version in action.
