Pac-Man Goes Battle Royale in Mega Tunnel Battle: Chomp Champs

Bandai Namco has announced Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle: Chomp Champs, which is essentially a battle royale spin on its iconic arcade series. While Pac-Man 99 has sort of already done that, this is a new take on the formula that’s coming to a wider range of platforms — including PS5 and PS4.

In this version, a group of 64 players navigate 64 mazes, all connected via the tunnels on the edges of each. It’s essentially a battle to be the last one standing as you eat pellets, fruit, and even other Pac-Men. As a match progresses, mazes will start to be eliminated, gradually shrinking the play space.

With cross-play, a bunch of power-ups to use, and cosmetic items to play dress-up with, it looks like it could be pretty good fun. Pac-Man Mega Tunnel Battle: Chomp Champs is due to release in early 2024.
