Namco Bandai will be bringing two of its most established properties to one of the newest gaming platforms. Today, the publisher announced that it will be bundling Pac-Man Tilt and Galaga 3D Impact for release as one package on the 3DS. Titled Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions, the game will be available later this year.
A spin-off from the original maze-navigating, pellet-munching adventure, Pac-Man Tilt is a 2D platformer that will make use of the 3DS's accelerometer. Players will be able to tilt the world as a way to solve environmental puzzles and evade roaming enemies. Namco Bandai will also be playing off Pac-Man's spherical shape, as he is able to roll into a ball to speed through levels, bouncing off pinball flippers and springboards along the way.
Galaga 3D Impact will also be a riff on the tried-and-true arcade shooter formula and sees the spaceship-versus-aliens contest shift to the first-person shooter realm. The 3DS's gyroscopic and 3D tech will factor into Galaga 3D Impact, as players will be able to physically move the system to take aim and fire at enemies before those enemies can destroy human civilization.
Namco Bandai has thus far supported the 3DS with a handful of titles that will be released in North America. These include an installment in its Ridge Racer series as well as Dual Pen Sports.
