Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. is hosting a creative and colorful pop-up event celebrating the video game icon PAC-MAN™’s birthday, with the big yellow fella marking 44 years since his debut on May 22, 1980. Taking place this May 25-26, PAC-MAN Shine On is an immersive event blending gaming, music, photo ops, giveaways, PAC-MAN appearances and more. Admission is free based on capacity, with activities and goodies for fans of all ages. The event will take over The Magic Box in downtown Los Angeles.

First debuted in New York City last year, PAC-MAN Shine On is a retro-futuristic reimagining of the legendary video game character, where nostalgic arcade aesthetics mix with a modern neon twist. The L.A. pop-up event will feature a life-size maze, classic PAC-MAN arcade cabinets, amusement games, aura reading photo booth, live screen printing and playable stations of the just-released furiously fast 64-multiplayer game PAC-MAN™ MEGA TUNNEL BATTLE™: CHOMP CHAMPS. The event is designed for all ages with photo ops with PAC-MAN himself, free games to play, giveaways, music including a virtual set by DJ PAC-MAN, food trucks and more.

Registration for the Los Angeles event is available through this link.
