Bandai Namco announced that a new Pac-Man game is headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PCs. The new Pac-Man game is called “Pac-Man 256,” and it will be available on 21st June, when Bandai Namco celebrates its 36th anniversary.

Pac-Man 256 is already available on Android and iOS platforms, and developers finally decided to introduce it to other popular platforms. However, there’s still no word about the Windows 10 Mobile release of the game, as Bandai Namco didn’t make any announcements for Microsoft’s mobile platform.

“We wanted everyone to enjoy Pac-Man 256, so it was a logical decision to make it available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The brand new local multiplayer mode, exclusive to the console and pc version, makes it even more accessible: get ready for maximum fun playing up to 4 players at the same time!” said Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe S.A.S Project Owner, Benjamin Prénom.

When it gets released, Pac-Man 256 will be priced $5.59, or €4.99 on all platforms. Developer said that the new version of the game will feature some new features and functionalities, specially designed for console play, including new unlocked items, social media sharing ability, and the new local co-op mode. The co-op multiplayer will allow up to four players to join the game, but since it’s ‘local,’ it won’t require internet connection.

Players’ main goal in the game remains the same after 36 years, you need to eat as many Pac-Dots and Power Pellets as possible and avoid the ghosts, Pinky, Blinky, Clyde and Inky.
