Ms. Pac-Man going Live

On the Arcade tomorrow.

Kristan squealed with delight this morning when he learned that this week's addition to Xbox Live Arcade would be Ms. Pac-Man, set to waka-waka way onto the download service tomorrow morning at 9am.

"This one confirmed me as a game addict aged 9," he said in an email this morning, as I nodded politely and made note that it costs 400 Microsoft points and will be yet another thing he's playing at the expense of Viva Piñata.

All 255 mazes from the arcade game will be supplied intact, and as you can tell from the screenshots it's been brought to life with the same trappings as many of Namco's other former greats. And New Rally-X.

In keeping with its Live Arcade stablemates, it will be supplied in demo form alongside the full 400-point download, with the requisite 12 achievements to unlock and online leaderboards to help put you in your place. Look out for our thoughts later this week when we've cleaned up after Kristan.
