Bandai Namco announced today that Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug will be available on April 20 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
“Each arcade-classic release will feature HD resolution and have support for leaderboards as well as trophies/achievements,” Bandai Namco says. You’ll also find different scanline and sound settings, as well as “other options to experience the masterpieces that charmed the planet!”
In North America, the Arcade Game Series 3-in-1 Pack will include Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug, and will save you some money over buying them separately. In Europe, all four games will be sold together.
Here’s what you need to know about the four games in the Arcade Game Series, as explained by Bandai Namco:
The masterpiece PAC-MAN finally comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC! Move PAC-MAN to eat all the Pac-Dots, while avoiding the ghosts, to advance to the next stage. Eat a Power Pellet to turn the tables on the ghosts and rack up a huge score! Players will be pleased to play with the original stage 256 bug – perfect for PAC-MANiacs!
The basic rules are the same as PAC-MAN, but with an additional Warp Tunnel and animations with PAC-MAN and Ms.PAC-MAN between levels, and other features. Ms. PAC-MAN truly shines as its own game!
Move the fighter and destroy the waves of incoming aliens in this space-age shooter. Destroy all the enemies to advance to the next stage! Retrieve a captured fighter and combine into a Dual Fighter! Players will be able to switch between old and new versions – perfect for true fans of the game.
Dig up, down, left, and right and burrow through the earth. Inflate and pop enemies with your harpoon to defeat them, or squish them with a rock. Lure enemies into a tunnel and crush several at once for massive points. Defeat all the enemies on the screen to advance to the next stage! Devoted diggers will also have to choose between the old and new versions.
As Exophase reveals, Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga each include a Platinum Trophy.
