 PAC'N ROLL SPINS INTO RETAIL STORES
 
 New Pellet Eating Gameplay Arrives on Nintendo DS with Innovative Touch Control Scheme
 
 SANTA CLARA, Calif., (August 23, 2005) - Leading video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. announced today that "PAC'N ROLL" has shipped to North American retail outlets. "PAC'N ROLL" combines the pellet-chomping action and Ghost-busting madness of classic Pac-Man with an innovative touch screen control system. Developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS, PAC'N ROLL also includes the original "Pac-Man" for a truly classic arcade game experience.
 
 "'PAC'N ROLL' makes full use of the Nintendo DS's capabilities, while retaining the very essence and qualities of Pac-Man that made him the cultural icon he is today," said Yoshi Niki, Business Unit Director at Namco Hometek Inc. "Now players can experience Pac-Man like never before through an intuitive touch screen control scheme and an original adventure set in a colorful 3D world."
 
 In his latest role, Pac-Man must rescue his friends when Pac-Land is magically transformed into Ghost-Land and all the inhabitants have been turned into spheres by the rock'n rolling Ghost Golvis. With fluid track-ball-like controls using the Nintendo DS touch screen, and a host of ability boosting power-up items, players can roll into action against all the obstacles and Ghosts packed into the stages of multiple worlds. Players can dash, dodge, and turn on a dime as they guide Pac-Man on his pellet collecting journey to save Pac-Land.
 
 "PAC'N ROLL" is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.

I just watcheed some movies of this game in action. I can't believe I'm saying this about a new Pac-Man game (though I did enjoy Pac-Pix), but it actually looks pretty good.

Yeah, I'm interested in both this and Pac Pix, but it seems kind of like Namco's stretching the series too thin...I mean, I'm not a huge Pac-man fan in the first place, and although I'd like both of these games, I'll be lucky to get one.  If they'd found a way to combine them into one game, I'd have made it a definite purchase...assuming Pac n' Roll is an above-average game.
That's my opinion, not yours.
