Super Mario Bros. 35The removal last week makes a lot more sense … Nintendo announced a brand new Battle Royale experience on behalf of Bandai Namco, this time featuring the famous yellow pellet muncher Pac-Man.
It’s called PAC-MAN 99and appears to be using the same template / game engine as Mario Bros. 35 and 35 Tetris 99. As the title suggests, this new battle royale challenges you to take on 99 other players to become the best Pac player. This game is another “special offer” available to Nintendo Switch Online members.
There will also be some additional paid content – including classic themes and offline modes. Over on the official game site, there are 17 individual DLC packs (including unlocking in offline mode for $ 14.99). There’s also the “Deluxe Pack” for $ 29.99 that includes everything.
This new but retro battle royale experience will arrive in the US tomorrow and later today in the UK. Are you going to try it? Leave a comment below.
