Namco readies another Arcade Collection compilation

50th Anniversary Arcade Collection of 14 games to get August release on multiple systems.


If history tells us anything, it's that Namco loves compilations. So it's only appropriate that for the company's 50th anniversary jam, Namco Hometek should release a collection of 14 of its arcade games on the PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, PC, and Game Boy Advance. The collection is due this August.

The 50th Anniversary Arcade Collection is being billed by Namco Hometek as the largest collection of Namco arcade classics ever. The assertion comes despite the fact that earlier this month, it announced the US release of the Namco Museum Battle Collection for the PSP, which features more than 20 Namco games, also to be released this summer.

The list of announced games included on the upcoming versions of Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Arcade Collection is identical across all platforms, though Xbox gamers will be able to post their high scores online via Xbox Live.

The lineup is as follows:

Ms. Pac-Man
Dig Dug
Pole Position
Pole Position II
Rolling Thunder
Rally X
Dragon Spirit
Sky Kid

Namco is also releasing a Game Boy Advance version of the compilation that will include Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, and Rally X.
