Chomp Champs promises to deliver “enhanced visuals, new game play modes, a host of customisation options, and new music”.
The online-only game will support cross-platform play, custom and skill-based matchmaking with a friend system, ranked mode, and global leaderboards.
“In the game, players must eat their way through multiple interconnected mazes to become the Chomp Champ – a.k.a. the last Pac standing at the end of each match,” Bandai Namco said.
“Gain the upper hand on other players or turn the tables against Ghosts by utilising a variety of Power Items which give Pac-Man shields, enhanced speed and more.
“Players can also sabotage their competition by using Power Items that help the Ghosts. Not only will they be able to chomp through Pac-Man’s regular diet of dots and the occasional fruit, but they can also chomp through other player-controlled Pac-Man characters.
“Additionally, players can assert their own unique style by personalising their Pac with a fun variety of body, head, and face cosmetics.”
Chomp Champs’ announcement coincides with the closure of Pac-Man 99’s servers, and the game’s removal from Nintendo Switch Online.
Nintendo had informed players back in May that it planned to shut down the massively multiplayer Pac-Man spin-off, which allowed up to 99 players to compete against each other.
