Bandai Namco announces PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures 2

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures was a surprise title last year that performed well enough to warrant a sequel. Bandai Namco have announced that they’re currently working on Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2, which will be released sometime in 2014. Last year the game debuted at E3 and was well-received among those who played it.

The game is set to launch in North America on the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The first game debuted in October of last year, though it didn’t arrive in Europe until last month so it’s likely Europe will see a delay on this one as well. If you’re interested in picking up the first game to play it, Amazon has it for only $20.

          Have you played the game? Not crap at all.

    • Commander Raichu

      i agree so i think we should think something different to get this out of our mouths

    I didn’t see that coming, didn’t the first one just come out?

    • Wooopigsooie

      Well, I mean it can’t take more than a few days to make a game like this… :P

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Pac-Man was awesome in the 80’s, but games like this do him no justice. I’ll stick to the old school style.

  • That guy who hates Spike

    It wasn’t well recieved.
    It had a rather mixed reception. Most saying it was mediocre.
    Just bring Pac Man Museum to Wii U and 3DS instead!

    • bistricky

      PAC-MAN MUSEUM!
      PAC-MAN MUSEUM!!
      PAC-MAN MUSEUM!!!
      Why the F### isn’t Pac-man Museum on the Wii U and 3DS ….. who messed that one up???
      Cheers :D

  • TheSpeedymouse

    I want the old Pac-Man in smash!

    • Shota

      yeah!

      • That guy who hates Spike

        What’s wrong with this version Pac Man?

        • Shota

          wat

        • Skelterz

          he’s a child molester look at him

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            This Pac Man is a child. So really, he’s just attracted to people his own age, as a child… You’ve gotten this confused.

          • Skelterz

            mate im a genius im kanye west

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            Well, that’s not a very good aspiration to have.

          • Skelterz

            hahahahahahahahahhahahaha

          • Will W

            You are both right: he’s a child that is a molester.

          • http://Thissitethesitethatexiststhisisarealsitedontclickthis.com Shane Michaels

            Wut, so he into babehs? Pak Mahn aint into no babehs!

          • That guy who hates Spike

            With that logic, you can say Mario looks like a child molester.
            Just a kid.
            Who happens to have “man” in his name

          • Skelterz

            he is fishsticks

        • tronic307

          You mean saturday morning Namco-Man Jr.? That ain’t Pac-Man!

          • That guy who hates Spike

            All they really did was change his eyes, to look more like Mario’s or Sonic’s.

        • Will W

          He’s a Jerk: He’s going to the ghost’s home planet, and destroying those poor souls. When he’s done torturing, he goes and laughs about it with his stupid friends.
          He’s worse than Hitler, or Felix the Cat.

      • Skelterz

        the new pacman is on the sex offenders list

    • Ducked

      I liked the Pac-Man version from the World series.

  • TheSpeedymouse

    I want the old Pac-Man in Smash Bros, not this new one!

    • That guy who hates Spike

      The old Pac Man looks souless and creepy.
      Like he could come to your house in the middle of the night.

      • Skelterz

        what you like the new pacman who’s just as spooky yet your parents trust him so he comes to your house in the day to molest you!

      • Swampert Master

        Just like the Villager.

    • Skelterz

      your mums in the new smash game and her final smash is heroin needle only she gets knocked out!

      • Yoshifan3

        • Yoshifan3

          • Hobo

            he was just trying to have some fun, calm down bro

        • Skelterz

          Not really your just way too serious mate calm down never had a bit of fun on a comment section before jeez your probably new to the site you need to see the way it works some of us have a laugh.

      • TheSpeedymouse

        That doesn’t even make any sense and that is not even relevant to what I was talking about.

        • Skelterz

          aetjtjsgdndfnea

          • TheSpeedymouse

            Now you are just acting immature.

          • Skelterz

  • Skelterz

    played already completed it its shit fuck pacman loved the game never played it can’t wait to complete it, pacmans shit. The life of a troll difficult.

    • Will W

      Keep up the good effort. Or bad effort…. BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD (Trolls are bad…..).

  • Capt. Smoker

    sigh….

  • John Andalora

    Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2…
    Well, with such an amazing 120,000 units sold across all consoles globally, who wouldn’t want to make a sequel to such an astoundingly successful game???

    • BIG Franky

      probably because those figures aren’t even remotely close to accurate?

      • John Andalora
        • BIG Franky

          NO… I KNEW YOU GOT THEM FROM VGCHARTZ…. ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY DIS-CREDITED SITES ON THE WEB… THOSE FIGURES ARE GARBAGE AND NO CREDIBLE GAMING SITES EVEN SOURCE THAT SITE ANY MORE… THSOE FIGURES ARE ABSOLUTE GARBAGE.

          • BIG Franky

            haha… oops! sorry about the caps! I wasn’t looking at the screen and my caps lock was on… my bad! :)

          • John Andalora

            No worries on caps. I’ve done that!

          • Zerovii

            We don’t know the costs it took to make it, and considering the cartoon is getting a second season, obviously whatever it sold did turn a profit enough to consider a second game.

          • John Andalora

            I feel like releasing a multiplatform game with more than 6 hours content nowadays costs more than what 120,000 units could make (especially when your multiplat is also on handhelds).
            Maybe I’m just bad with numbers, but I suppose I think it costs a lot

          • Will W

            That crazy notion wouldn’t work. “MULTIPLE” platforms? A game that — that isn’t pokemon — that will hold people’s attention for longer than the Big bang Theory is on (I mean different episodes)?

          • John Andalora

            Fine then.
            If you don’t believe VGChartz (which provides a solid number of retail units sold within a certain period of time) then please provide a source which has the proper sales figures. And I want to see the actual figures, so please link it where I can actually find out how many units were sold.
            While I appreciate individuals making sure that I know which sites are “absolute garbage” I would also appreciate individuals showing me the sites that have more reliable information. Without such sites to back it up, one might get the false impression that an individual is simply making things up or denying the proof without having sound reason, at which point the entire conversation would produce nothing further.

  • Jason

    I remember when 3D Pac-Man games used to be good. What happened?

    • BIG Franky

      the first title actually wasn’t all that bad…. try playing a game before trashing it, maybe? worth more than $20? probably not… but certainly worth twenty bucks.

    • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

      Yeah 1st play the game, then open your mouth.

      • Jason

        How on earth would you know if I’ve played the game or not? You don’t even know me. Why don’t you THINK, before opening your mouth

  • Ducked

    Since Namco is also developing on Smash Bros, I’m just waiting for them to reveal him as a character. They will probably do it at E3 this year.

    The Wii U version of this game wasn’t bad, but nothing like the Pac-Man World series.

    • Logan Wayman

      Yeah! PAC-MAN FOR SSB4 BABY! VIVA EL WII U! VIVA LA PAC-MAN! VIVA EL SMASH BROS!

    • MerryBlind .

      Pac-Man better be in Smash, or else….. well or else I’ll just be disappointed….

      • Ducked

        Yeah that wouldn’t stop me from buying it haha

        • MerryBlind .

          haha exactly!

  • bistricky

    Rather have seen Pac-Man Museum on the Wii U …… but this is modern gaming life for ya. Cheers :D

  • nexxus6

    Like the game or not, people should be happy that Namco is brining the sequel to the WiiU. I can guarantee if Namco was skipping the WiiU with this title, people would not hesitate to rev up the “WiiU is doomed” bus.

    • Phoenix Maybe

      Support from Namco-Bandai isn’t a bad thing. It’s just that the only game their brining to the Wii U is this kind of stuff. But you do have a point when it comes to the Nintendoomers.

      • Swampert Master

        Um, what about Super Smash Bros. 4?

  • Phoenix Maybe

    Wow I didn’t even know they released the first one.
    This isn’t helping Namco.

  • Jeremy Baker

    It’s amazing that an OK game like this will get a sequel but a amazing game like zombieu won’t get a sequel. Sad so sad

  • Noah

    Don’t like Pac-Man’s voice, but surely I’m not the only one who thinks this game looks kinda fun? Not life-changing by any means, but some good light-hearted platforming.

    • Squid

      I was thinking the same. It seems to be the kind of PAC Man world game. But if the game is surrounded by cringe worthy voices and jokes I’m not buying.

    • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

      Then again, does someone like Mario’s voice – or Sonic?

      • Noah

        Love Sonic’s voice, sans early Griffith.

        EDIT: I also liked Pac-Man’s voice in World 3.

  • Juilen Cardenas

    *facepalm*

  • tronic307

    No, no, NO! Where’s Pac-Man Museum for Wii U??? Is Namco seriously testing the Wii U market with shovelware?

  • wii u is awsome

    ahh fuck off NAMCO PAC MAN WONT SELL!

    • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

      I bought it – and I’ll buy the 2nd as well.

      • wii u is awsome

        it wont sell LOTS

  • Logan Wayman

    This game looks AWESOME! I played the 1st game, and I liked the hell out of it! I’m excited for the sequel! Especially with the Giant Pac-Man! PAC SMASH!

    • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

      Nice to see someone who understands how fun and great these games are. There are lot of ignorant people here who don’t know what they’re saying.

      • Logan Wayman

        Aw, thanks, pally-boy!

  • Mr. J

    Yep I don’t care.

  • Zerovii

    Im excited, the first game was really fun, the cartoon might’ve not been that great but the game was a solid platformer. I’m just hoping they’ll put 2 on PC as well.

    • Will W

      It could have multi-screen support, if you have multiple screen’s.

  • thedeciderU

    just…how?

  • https://soundcloud.com/rauschenmaschine Kristian Kouvo

    I liked the 1st one, so this is a welcomed sequel. Anyone thinking otherwise, MEH U.

  • jhell

    naruto please

  • Rhys O-o Ydrahcm

    My spider sense is tingling, I sure hope this announcment wont have anything thing to do with a little game called smash bros
