Last year, the iconic video game Pac-Man made its way to the big screen with the Sony Pictures summer hit Pixels. Ever since its initial Japanese release in 1980, Pac-Man has been an important part of video game history, and now you can play this hit game in the biggest way possible, literally. Bandai Namco is selling a version of this game, which is displayed on a massive 108-inch screen. But it will cost you a pretty penny to put this in your own home.
Nerdist came across two videos of what is being called the World's Largest Pac-Man, the first of which features footage of the massive game in use, from the 2016 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) convention. The second video is an official trailer from Bandai Namco, which breaks down some of the features of this game. Here's an official description from the Bandai Namco website.
"Have you ever wanted to play your favorite game on a video billboard? Well here is your chance to play the classics like you never have before. Bandai Namco and Raw Thrills will light up your room with the World's Largest Pac-Man."
The trailer reveals that this World's Largest Pac-Man set-up allows two players to play simultaneously to complete the mazes, which wasn't a feature on the original game. This also allows users to upload their own images for advertising in "attract mode". If you want to buy this for your own home or business though, it will cost you a whopping $10,995, according to GameRoomGuys.com.
The game trailer was launched back in July on Bandai Namco's YouTube channel, but it's unclear if this massive video game system has become a big seller or not. It's possible that Bandai Namco could release other versions of this World's Largest system, but that hasn't been confirmed. Take a look at the trailer for the World's Largest Pac-Man, along with footage from this years IAAPA convention.
