Pac-Man Battle Royale Deluxe is in stock and shipping now!

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL - The first production release of the Pac-Man Battle Royale Deluxe units were so much in demand that the units sold out before NAMCO America officially unveiled it to both US and international buyers at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2011. The deluxe units have been out in the field for the last 1.5 months and the performance is off the charts! The collection reports being reported put Pac-Man Battle Royale at or near the top of the location against attractions with far heftier price tags. The deluxe cabinets officially launched in December to great fanfare with launch parties in 20 different Dave & Buster's locations across the US. The two-day launch event saw Pac-Man Power Girls appearing in locations from Times Square in New York to San Diego, California. Guests at the launch party locations were greeted by a Pac-Man Power Girl and were given free game swipes to try out the new multi-player game. Players at the event were also given limited edition Mardi Gras beads emblazoned with the iconic Pac-Man logo. Photos of the launch parties can be seen on the official Pac-Man Battle Royale Facebook page at More...

A look at Namco's booth at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2010

Namco America understands that the IAAPA Attractions Expo can be a very overwhelming experience. With so many games on display, attendees can quickly become confused as to which manufacturer made which game. Brochures can only do so much to explain the features and benefits of a game. To help lessen the confusion, we have created a brief video describing all of the games on display in our booth at the IAAPA Attractions Expo 2010. This video will be great for attendees that needed a quick refresh in memory of our games as well as people that couldn't make it out to the show. More...
