The mobile hit heads to the big screen

Pac-Man 256 is launching on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One next month, according to Bandai Namco Entertainment's European branch. Planned for a June 21 release, the port of the mobile game will add local co-op multiplayer, as seen in the trailer up top.

In the console and Steam versions, up to four players can race around the endless maze together as they outrun both ghosts and that game-breaking bug. The game will also add social sharing features and additional themes, and costs $4.99 at launch, according to the publisher.

Created by Crossy Road developer Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets, Pac-Man 256 found success after its release on iOS and Android last year. The game is based on the infamous 256th level of the original Pac-Man arcade game, which players are prevented from accessing due to a major glitch.
