Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Announced for Wii U and 3DS

Unfortunately, the games are 3D platformers, so this could be a game to merely consider rather than rush and buy immediately (given the somewhat wide range of opinions present online about the different platformers and adventure games Pac-Man has starred in), but it’s been announced by Namco Bandai regardless.  Here’s the official trailer for the title:

And here’s some story details about it for those wondering just what the heck is going on:

The game revolves around the vibrant universe of Pac-World, where Pacworlders lived in peace until the mischievous Netherworld ghosts, led by their wicked leader Betrayus, escaped from their ghoulish domain to forcibly take control of Pac-World.

So basically, the ghosts break out, take over Pac-World and leave Pac-Man as the only person to stop their evil plans.  Just like in pretty much every other platformer on the planet.

The game will also feature your standard new abilities and various homages/throwbacks to the arcade games.

And that’s Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures for you, a new Pac-Man game that’s being released on the Wii U, 3DS,  Xbox 360 and PS3.  Here’s hoping it turns out to be a decent platformer/adventure game rather than just a mediocre one.
