Pac-Man 256 debuted on mobile phones and tablets last August, bringing the classic gameplay and mazes to an all new platform. To celebrate the birthday of the titular hero, Bandai Namco announced today that the mobile game developed by Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets will finally be headed to consoles and PC this summer.

The game launches on June 21 with all the
features from the original mobile release as well as a brand-new local
multiplayer mode for up to four players. Players will have to work
together to conquer the ghostly enemies from the original 1980 arcade
The gameplay of Pac-Man 256 was inspired by the glitched final level in the original arcade version that would bring up a kill-screen ending the player's progress. There are plenty of Pac-Dots and Power Pellets to be consumed, and each run-through of the course will unlock new power-ups and abilities.
Additionally, in-app purchases like the Coin Doubler on the mobile version of the game will be discounted from May 19 to May 27 in celebration of Pac-Man's birthday.
