Pac-Man 99 out on Switch today

The new multiplayer take on Namco’s mascot is free for Nintendo Switch Online members. The game has plenty of new, exciting features to make the experience fresh.

Most important is perhaps the 99 player battle royale, which of course is online. Similarly to PUBG, it has a king of the hill style gameplay, where the last man standing wins the game. Eating Power Pellets will allow you to eat ghosts, and eating ghosts will send Jammer Pac-Man to chase your opponents. Up to eight different strategies can be used, including speed up and more Jammers.

You can download themes from other Namco games, including Dig Dug and Galaga, for visual variation. They also change the sounds. The themes cost money. Here is the trailer of the game:
