Pac-Man Kart Rally Coming to Windows Phone

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
When a company has a character they love and wants to take them out of their typical gaming habitat, you know what genre that character almost always seems to wind up in?

Kart Racers.

So it should come as little surprise that Namco's favored... puck... Pac-Man, has received this treatment. Now, his kart racing exploits will be making their way to the Windows Phone platform and, for the first time in Windows Phone history as revealed by WPCentral, will feature multiplayer over a wi-fi connection. This means that two people in the same room with WPs and the game may compete head-to-head.

Pac-Man Kart Rally Title

Like many character-themed Kart Racers, Pac-Man will be bringing along several friends from other Namco Titles, including Dig Dug, Galaga, Mr. DRILLER Online, and Beautiful Katamari. Check out the full list below:
