Namco announced the world’s first international cross-network operator mobile games tournament. The tournament is open to every i-mode phone owner on all of the mobile networks in Europe where Namco offers its PAC-MANTMARCADE site. The tournament is based around Namco’s brand-new high-score version of PAC-MAN, which allows users to upload their highest scores from the mobile version of PAC-MAN to compare it with other users, locally and internationally.
The competition will run from 4-6 weeks, starting in mid August. The player in each territory with the highest score will continue onto the Grand Final in the UK in November, where they will compete live and head-to-head with the other winners on an original PAC-MAN arcade machine at the famous Namco Station entertainment centre at County Hall, in the heart of London.
The overall winner will become PAC-MAN European Champion 2005, and walk away with a rare and exclusive 25th anniversary branded PAC-MAN arcade machine, featuring three classic Namco arcade titles – the original PAC-MAN, Ms.PAC-MANTM and GalagaTM.
i-mode subscribers can enter the competition by downloading the game from Namco’s recently re-designed PAC-MAN ARCADE i-mode site. Full Press Release Here
