PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN are relevant again! At least they’re gonna be more relevant in the month of October than they have been in quite some time. We’re all already clamoring to play as PAC-MAN and almost 50 other characters in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, and see where he stacks up against the other line up of newly added characters to Nintendo’s brawler. And while PAC-MAN will be fighting Nintendo and other popular Japanese characters, Bandi Namco is also using Ms. PAC-MAN in the fight against breast cancer in Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Together with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, BN has launched their Ms. PAC-MAN Pink Ribbon Campaign. The campaign will add an additional maze to PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN titles on both iOS and Android devices for $.99, in which all proceeds will then go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Ben Acevedo, Senior Producer at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. states, “Breast cancer has directly affected my immediate family and it’s a fantastic opportunity for gamers and the industry to get involved. While the mazes we are offering in October are fun, the real challenge is to raise awareness and get players, producers, artists, and programmers across the mobile industry to join us and Join the Pac.”
