There are two versions of Pac-Man in the set, as well as the ghosts Pinky, Inky, and what appears to be Clyde. Blinky does not appear. Also, Clyde is yellow instead of orange. Pac-Man and, presumably, Ms. Pac-Man are dressed up as Dear Daniel and Hello Kitty. Pinky is wearing a Hello Kitty cap. Two versions of Clyde, My Melody and Pochco wear hats. Inky will have a pompompurin hat.
This is part of the ongoing collaboration between Bandai Namco and Sanrio. back in December 2021, the mobile version of Pac-Man had themed stages. People can earn Hello Kitty ribbon cosmetics. There are also other pieces of merchandise, such as bags with containers on both lines. There were also rubber straps that people could use as keychains. When a second collection may appear, it could mean figures based on those additional designs. Some of them included Badz Maru, Sinamorol, Kuromi and the ghosts in Little Twin Stars’ Kiki and Lala.
Six Pac-Man X Sanrio character figures will appear in Japan in October 2022. Another recent Pac-Man crossover involved the time I was reborn as a slime.Get latest news and articles related to gaming only at Gaming Strat.
