PAC-MAN 99 shuts down, new PAC-MAN battle royale announced

Back in September, Nintendo announced that the digital-only PAC-MAN 99 game will join its mustachioed sibling, Super Mario Bros. 35, in the great big pile of lost media in the sky. Today, that officially happened. Officially, support ended on Sunday, October 8th. But, seeing as that was a Sunday with a federal holiday the next day, the game has been officially delisted as of today. The game pitted 99 players against each other in classic PAC-MAN gameplay, with the ability to mess with your opponents in various ways. As with all battle royale games, only one can make it to the end. The good news is that those that bought the DLC prior to it being delisted will still be able to play PAC-MAN 99 offline. People looking to get the game or DLC at this point are entirely out of luck though. Nintendo announced last week that they were killing the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U servers. So, we can just add it all onto the burn pile. Nintendo recently announced and released F-ZERO 99, a chaotic F-ZERO game that has 99 players all racing on the same track. But, they also still have the long-running Tetris 99 going full-steam. Back in 2021, they removed Super Mario Bros. 35, a fan favorite battle royale game that had players compete while playing the NES classic. It was a special edition for the 35th anniversary of Mario, but it was gone much too soon. PAC-MAN 99 isn’t the only pellet eating…PAC-MAN 99 shuts down, new PAC-MAN battle royale announced
