Nintendo revealed Pac-Man 99, And the new multiplayer game that has emerged in the Royal Royale genre will be available today on the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service.
It seems to draw inspiration from other retro classics, these classics have recently shined in the Royal Escape Band (Look at you Tetris 99 with Super Mario Bros. 35), Pac-Man 99 will push you and 99 other players into the lobby and test you to see who is the last entanglement.
In fact, it works similarly to “Tetris 99”-each player has his own screen, but has to devour powerful pills, eat ghosts and send “James Pac-Man” to the enemy’s screen, all of which are Part of the game. If you want to win, you will need to destroy yourself as much as possible. By sending the eaten ghosts to their screen, you will be able to mess up your opponent’s game in eight predetermined ways. You can read more about the game on the exclusive Nintendo page.
You can take a look at the actual game below.
