Namco cancels 'Pac-Man Museum' across both Nintendo platforms

Namco has decided to pull their new Pac-Man Museum game from the Wii U and 3DS siting reasons of "delayed development" according to Nintendo Everything.

When the game was announced in June of 2013 it was supposed to be playable on the aforementioned Nintendo systems, Xbox Live, Playstation Network, and PC. Wii U and 3DS are the only units to get cut.

The game itself is a compilation of numerous Pac-Man arcade games including the iconic original known simply as Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man Battle Royale, and seven other Pac-Man titles.

Pac-Man has appeared on Nintendo consoles numerous times since his creation in 1980. His most recent foray on the Wii U and 3DS was just this past year, with the release of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.

One thing to take into consideration is that this very well may dispel the rumors of Pac-Man making an appearance in the new Smash Bros. game. It was heavily speculated that Pac-Man would be among the newcomers, however this sudden development may put a damper on the relationship of Namco and Nintendo.

For those who still intend on purchasing Pac-Man Museum, the game will be available on February 25 on the Playstation Network and February 26 on Xbox Live and Windows.
