‘Namco Museum’ comes to the Switch!

by Phil Wheat

BANDAI NAMCO have announced that Namco Museum, the ultimate collection of beloved arcade games from the 80’s, is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

A staple of a number of console generations (previous iterations have appeared on consoles before, including on PS2 and Nintendo DS), this classic catalogue includes favourites from Namco’s classic arcade collection, including PAC-MAN, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaga ‘88, The Tower of Druaga, Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2, SkyKid, Splatterhouse, and Tank Force.

With NAMCO MUSEUM, players will be transported back to the days when coin-operated arcades reigned supreme, for a truly nostalgic experience. Through the Nintendo Switch, these retro classics can be played anytime, anywhere, and against anyone through the game’s online ranking system. With the ranking system, players can compete to earn the number one spot on the worldwide challenger board for their favourite Namco arcade classics. Players nostalgic for the classic coin-op era can transform their Nintendo Switch into a miniature cabinet by turning the handheld console vertically for a taller, slimmer screen that replicates the original arcade experience. NAMCO MUSEUM also offers a challenge mode, presenting players new and unique challenges for each game, giving classic games a fresh twist.

The Namco Museum collection will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch in Summer 2017.
