Namco Bandai Begins Namco Generations Project
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX to be followed by Galaga and Aero Cross.
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX will hit Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow and PlayStation Network (PS3) next week. But this new take on Pac-Man is just the start of Namco Bandai's plans for classic Namco franchises.
The company detailed today the "Namco Generations" project. This series revives Namco titles of old with modern technology and "sense" for release on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is the first game in the series. It will be followed at an undisclosed point by Galaga Legions DX and Aero Cross. Namco Bandai says that it plans on adding new titles periodically.
Those who buy any of the Namco Generations titles will be able to receive a community newsletter called "NG News." This newsletter includes game strategies, development secrets, and information about upcoming titles and campaigns. The latest issue of NG News can be obtained from within the games themselves.
