PAC-MAN launched himself into the world of 3D party gaming on Nintendo 3DS today, as NAMCO BANDAI Games'  PAC-MAN Party 3D got the party started at retailers across Europe.

It's PAC-MAN's birthday party and everyone's invited.  Jump into over 50 crazy mini-games, challenges and surprises with up to three friends and compete to see who's got the best fiesta flair. Time-based challenges include racing, eating, or even rolling a giant ball of spaghetti, with every game designed to give players' skill and reflexes a real party workout.

The action uses all the functionality of the Nintendo 3DS including the motion sensor, gyro sensor, 3D Screen, Touch Screen controls and more to deliver frantic action for all the family.  With modes including Story, Mini-Game, Party and Collection, plus the original arcade versions of PAC-MAN™, Galaga™ and Dig-Dug™ as a special bonus, there's more than enough party fun for anyone.

If you've grown up with PAC-MAN, or even if you've never heard of the little guy before, the non-stop 3D fun of PAC-MAN Party 3D is for you.

PAC-MAN Party 3D for Nintendo 3DS™ is available now at retailers across Europe.  For more information about the entire NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe line up, visit
