PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC doesn't credit the original PAC-MAN WORLD devs
That's pretty PAC
As you most likely know, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is a remake of the 1999 title, PAC-MAN WORLD. While some remakes aim to rework and revamp classic titles in a number of ways, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC sticks very closely to what the original PAC-MAN WORLD has to offer, and there’s nothing wrong with that. What there is something wrong with is the lack of credit for the original dev team.
We’re not sure why, but PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC doesn’t include credits for any of the original dev team that worked on PAC-MAN WORLD. Again, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC wouldn’t exist without PAC-MAN WORLD, so there’s absolutely zero reason why the developers of the 1999 title shouldn’t be included here.
Bandai Namco has been made aware of this situation, but their response isn’t all that encouraging. A Bandai Namco social media rep said, “Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We hear you and we are looking into it currently.” Hopefully that means an update in the future to add those credits in, along with an explanation as to why they weren’t there in the first place.
If/when PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC gets a credits update, we’ll make sure to bring that information to you.
