Pac-Man Kart Rally Hits Mobile Phones, Namco Fans Rejoice

I’d bet that many other gamers out there who grew up in the 80’s got their first taste of gaming just as I did with Pac-Man in the old school arcade. That was the first video game I ever played in an arcade, and it has a special place in my gaming heart. Pac-Man is still with us today with all sorts of new games using the yellow cheese wheel as the main character, and Namco has announced yet another new game for Pac-Man fans with mobile devices.

The game is called Pac-Man Kart Rally for Mobile and it supports many major mobile phone platforms including Java, BREW, RIM, and Windows Mobile devices. An Android version of the game will land in early 2011. Namco makes no mention of the iPhone in the press release for the game, but I would be shocked it the game doesn’t come to the iPhone.

The game will come in 2D and 3D versions with ten characters from Namco games of yore. Characters include Pac-Man himself, Taizo Hori from Dig Dug, the Prince from Katamari Damacy, Susumu Hori from Mr. Driller and the Fighter from Galaga. There are several more characters as well. Each of the characters has different characteristics that will give them different abilities and affect the way the kart moves. The racing game has 12 tracks and five different game modes.

Wakka, wakka, wakka.
