Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures coming in fall

Pac-Man is back... as a teenager with a strong sense of family and friendship? We don't pretend to understand the rationale behind the new Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Disney XD series, but Namco Bandai today announced a game of the same name will hit North American PlayStation 3s, Wii Us, and Xbox 360s in fall. A side scrolling version is also planned for 3DS.


The little yellow ball dude must chomp his way through the legions of ghosts which have taken over Netherworld. Fifty-fifty on a twist ending which reveals Pac-Man made the whole thing up, and has just eaten half of ghost society in an act of unprovoked aggression. Judge the Pac-Lore for yourself at the game's official website.

There you can meet Pac-Man's friends Spiral and Cylindria who are (not making this up) "at the bottom of the popularity food chain, but they are ok with their status because together they are trying to:

  • Enjoy life
  • Cope with the challenges of being a teenager
  • And save their planet from the ghosts."

From the trailer above, Ghostly Adventures looks like a fairly typical mascot action/platformer, with special powerups for combat and traversal. Or in this case, one power-up: the power to become that guy from Chameleon Twist.

Who doesn't like Chameleon Twist?

    i hope this cartoon gives teenage pac-man some baggy jeans, peach fuzz, and braces. also i hope teenage pac-man is a big fan of skrillex, psy and mackelmore. i would watch the cartoon is this happened.

    Well, this is a thing that's happening.

    I just don't know how it could be better than the early 1980s cartoon

    ^^^^^ This exactly, though its gonna be made by Marvel Studios founder Avi Arad, so who knows how itll turn out

    Heh, that wasn't so well received in the UK on account of them calling him "Paccy", which is essentially the same as the word racist morons here call people with Pakistani or Indian backgrounds. It was obviously not done deliberately but the show still got pulled pretty damn quick!

    this makes no damn sense

    So I guess this is really Chameleon Twist 3?

    You know I thought I would give it a chance, but then I watch the actual trailer. First off, that chomping sound effect is atrocious and sounds like it's gonna get old real fast, they could've at least change the sound effect on that suit. Second, if chomping the ghosts is all your gonna do, than it seems boring unless they spice it up on different types of ghosts and what not. Either way, the first 2 Pacman world games did a good job, the third I never followed for some reason, but this doesn't look like it's gonna follow that but whatever happens I hope it's for the better, I like the idea of pacman being in his teen years.

    I agree, the chomping sound is really bad.

    I would just like to say, that on the game's official website, at the bottom where there is a screenshots slideshow... Pacman, in a chameleon costume, is sticking his tongue up a ghost's ass.

    Oh God, Pac-Man is going the Sonic Route *shivers*
