Namco brings Pac-Man and Galaga Dimensions to 3DS


After revealing a Pac-Man / Galaga combination title in Nintendo's enormous list of 3DS games at last year's E3, Namco hasn't said a peep about the game. The latest issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang), however, spills new details on the combination title -- dubbed "Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions" -- including the fact that each game has been ... tweaked for Nintendo's new handheld.

Galaga 3D Impact is described as a 3D shooting game, where the player pilots a ship from the cockpit view, aiming with the 3DS' gyrometer by physically moving the handheld. Pac-Man Tilt is a similarly strange take on classic Pac-Man gameplay, with our pellet-gobbling buddy donning humanoid features and traversing numerous levels -- you can tilt the 3DS to alter the levels while playing. The title has yet to receive a release date or a North American announcement, but we expect to hear more in the coming months.
