Pac-Man World Re-Pac Shows Off Revitalized Levels In New Video

Bandai Namco dropped a new trailer this week for Pac-Man World Re-Pac, as they show off the work they did on some of the old levels. There really isn't much competition here as you look at the video and see the two games side-by-side. The older version definitely looks like it was made about 25 years ago, while the newer version looks like something that was created in the past five years. It even appears they realized some of the mechanics of the game needed some tweaking as the way you approach certain aspects of the game looks a lot different. You can check out the full video down below as the game is still currently set to be released on August 26th, 2022, for PC and all three major consoles.
