Nintendo Switch Online special offer: Battle 99 players in a PAC-MAN battle royale!

Test your chomping chops in the PAC-MAN™ 99 game: a 99-player PAC-Royale where you compete to be the last PAC-MAN standing!

And as a special offer, Nintendo Switch Online members can download and play the online mode of the game at no extra cost*.

How to play

There’s a good chance you already know about the PAC-MAN part of PAC-MAN 99, but let’s go over it just in case. You’ll guide your fearless PAC-MAN in a maze that’s filled with tasty PAC-Dots and ghosts that need to be avoided. When you eat a Power Pellet, ghosts will turn blue and be vulnerable to your mighty jaws. And, like in more recent PAC-MAN games, you can touch a sleeping ghost to build up a ghost train that follows behind you – just waiting to be chomped.

Now for the twist: Eating blue ghosts also sends Jammer PAC-MAN to your opponents! Touching a Jammer PAC-MAN will cause your rivals to slow down, making everything a bit harder for them.

Of course, the more ghosts you eat, the more Jammers you'll send – try chowing down on a Ghost Train to make a huge comeback. You can also flip between eight different preset strategies that either involve powering up PAC-MAN in different ways or targeting specific types of opponents. You’ll win if/when you’re the last PAC-MAN standing.

Upgrade your game with DLC

While the online mode is an exclusive benefit for Nintendo Switch Online members, extra modes can be purchased by members and non-members alike. Purchase the PAC-MAN™ 99 Deluxe Pack to unlock offline modes such as COM Battle, Score Attack, and Blind Time Attack.
