4-player Pac-Man arcade game spotted

Pac-Man CE style, cocktail cabinet.

Namco Bandai has shown off a new four-player competitive Pac-Man arcade machine called Pac-Man Battle Royale.

The game was spotted by Arcade Heroes at Amusement Expo 2010. It features the neon graphics and morphing mazes of the superb download game Pac-Man Championship Edition, but shifts the emphasis onto multiplayer competition as outsized, powered-up Pac-Men try to eat each other rather than the ghosts.

Arcade Heroes' YouTube video shows a beautiful prototype cabinet in the flat-topped cocktail style, complete with retro wood finish and drink-holders.

Apparently, Namco hopes to get the cab into bars to celebrate Pac-Man's 30th anniversary this year. It's due for release in September. Want one.
