Pac-Man Museum Compilation Gobbles Up Digital Platforms this Winter

PacManMuseum

Pac-Man’s new age Ghostly Adventures not doing it for you? Fear not, Namco Bandai will give Pac-Man nostalgia fiends a fix of retro pellet chomping later this year.

Pac-Man Museum, announced for digital download release on PC (via Steam), PSN (for PS3 only, no Vita version I’m afraid), XBLA and Nintendo eShop for 3DS and Wii U, will feature a collection of Pac-Man favorites from 1980 through 2010. The full compilation lineup has not yet been announced, but three titles have been confirmed so far: the original arcade Pac-Man, Pac-Man Championship Edition, and multiplayer game Pac-Man Battle Royale.

The confusing–and disappointing–piece of this announcement is the fact that, for some reason, the PSN and XBLA versions will not include Pac-Man Championship Edition, yet all versions will sell for $19.95. What up with that?
