Way PAC in 2020
PAC-MAN celebrates his 42nd birthday this year, and in honor of the occasion, Bandai Namco put together PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC, a remake of the 1999-released PAC-MAN WORLD. Turns out Bandai Namco started working on these anniversary plans quite some time ago.
In an interview with XBOX, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC producer Yuji Yoshii talked about when the project came together. Turns out work on the remake kicked off all the way back in 2020.
We started development of this title in 2020 and the game has been in production for about two years. Our team repeatedly discussed the finished image of the remake during the planning stage, so development proceeded relatively smoothly. It has been 23 years since the release of the original version, but we have been very aware of the requests from fans for the return of Pac-Man World for so many years, so we are incredibly pleased that we are finally able to answer them.
