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

Three game modes, Tournament, Challenge, and Survival, will also be available. You'll have to use tilt controls for steering in this one as well as on screen buttons for brakes and power-up usage.Pac-Man Kart Rally
