Namco Museum getting Megamix for Wii

Latest edition in retro compilation series includes 18 arcade ports, half-dozen updated versions of Gator Panic, Rally-X, Grobda, and more.

The Namco Museum line of games hasn't added a new virtual wing in over a year, but a new installment in the long-running retro compilation series is on the horizon. Namco Bandai Games America today announced Namco Museum Megamix for the Wii, a collection of 18 straight ports of the company's arcade efforts, with an extra six updated "Remix" versions pulled from its extensive catalog.

Gator Panic Remix is just one of 24 titles included in the new Namco Museum Megamix.

The Namco Museum series has been compiling and rereleasing the publisher's arcade classics and obscure older games onto new systems since the days of the original PlayStation. Namco Museum Megamix will be the series' second go-around on Nintendo's console. In 2007, the publisher launched Namco Museum Remix on the system, a collection of nine arcade ports and five remixed games, all of which will also be included in Namco Museum Megamix.

If Namco were smart, they wouldn't release this rehash on the Wii and instead make a Point Blank collection for the Wii...perhaps even a new one. The Wii is perfect for that game series.

The "Pac-Man World" franchise should be in it...

Lots of "Pac" games there. Still, a nice way to get into older titles.

Namco. Release ONE disc with EVERYTHING on it. Even a Wii could easily hold every old arcade game you've ever made. Seriously. (Yes I know it's because they're greedy, still sucks)
