The only thing better than gobbling pellets and ghosts in an endless maze is gobbling pellets and ghosts alongside one of your friends. And the only thing better than gobbling pellets and ghosts alongside one of your friends is gobbling pellets and ghosts alongside two of your friends.

That makes gobbling pellets and ghosts alongside four of your friends twice as better! You'll get to do just that when Pac-Man 256 comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 21.

But Pac-Man 256 is no run-of-the-mill Pac-Man port. The game gets its name from the original's infamous 256th level, designed to be impossible to beat: the game glitches, scrambling graphical elements. You'll get to play through that multi-pixel pile-up all through Pac-Man 256, introducing a fun new twist to the classic formula.
