Bandai Namco is bringing the Pac-Man Museum+ collection to PC and consoles in late May.

The Pac-Man franchise has seen a ton of pretty great releases on arcades, home consoles, PC, and even mobile devices, not the least of which was the recent Pac-Man 99 on Nintendo Switch. However, Bandai Namco is bringing a collection together for those with a taste for other titles throughout the series’ long history. It has announced Pac-Man Museum+ is coming in May 2022.

Bandai Namco put out a release date trailer for Pac-Man Museum+ on the Bandai Namco YouTube channel on February 28, 2022. Coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 27, 2022, Pac-Man Museum+ brings a collection of 14 games from across the franchise together in one bundle, complete with some new features for players to enjoy. It will also be on Xbox Game Pass on Day One. Several of the games will feature offline simultaneous co-op play, but all of them will feature a mission system in which you can unlock coins to earn items and customize your own Pac-Man arcade. You’ll also be able to unlock various music from throughout the franchise for use in your arcade or just fun listening.

That said, the core attraction of this whole package is the games themselves. Here are all of the games included in Pac-Man Museum+:

  • PAC-MAN
  • SUPER PAC-MAN
  • PAC & PAL
  • PAC-LAND
  • PAC-MANIA
  • PAC-ATTACK
  • PAC-IN-TIME
  • PAC-MAN ARRANGEMENT Arcade ver.
  • PAC-MAN ARRANGEMENT CS ver.
  • PAC-MAN CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION
  • PAC Motos
  • PAC’N ROLL REMIX
  • PAC-MAN BATTLE ROYALE
  • PAC-MAN 256

While Ms. Pac-Man is an obvious omission from an otherwise great list, Pac-Man Championship Edition, Pac-Man Battle Royale, and Pac-Man 256 are excellent modern representatives of the series that should be fun whether you’re new to Pac-Man or an old hand.

With Pac-Man Museum+ landing in May on the 2022 gaming calendar, fans of the franchise should make space on their calendar for this solid looking collection. Stay tuned for further details and updates as we get closer to Pac-Man Museum+’s release date.

      The recent Namco collections have been really bad. I'll wait to reviews, and then probably till a sale.

        No Ms Pac-Man because I believe it was part of a legal battle that currently makes it so it can’t be sold alongside other versions of the game.

          This is obviously a NAMCO collection, so all the Midway offshoots aren’t here.

            Not sure if that matters, I haven’t seen Ms Pac-Man packaged with other Pac-Man games in lord knows how long. Galaga, sure, but never Pac-Man

      No Ms. Pac-man?
      No Jr. Pac-Man?
      No Baby Pac-man?
      Way to leave out the rest of the family!

      Also missing:
      Pac-Man Plus
      Atari 2600 Pac-Man
      Professor Pac-Man

      All of the above are arcade games, except for the 2600 version..

      Main reason I would want this is the release of Super PAC-Man, but that came out on arcade archives a bit back. If this goes on sale though I’ll probably consider it, being the Pac-Man fiend that I am.

        Super Pac-Man is the best Pac-Man for sure, but it *really* needs a four-way arcade stick to play -- at least in my experience.
