Namco Museum Essentials coming to PSN with updated Xevious


PlayStation 3 owners dying to get their hands on some classics are in for a treat. Namco Bandai has announced Namco Museum Essentials, a digital download title collection that will be released this July.

Yes, we’re talking a collection here, including Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig-Dug, Dragon Spirit, and Xevious. Also included is the “re-envisioned” Xevious: Resurrection, featuring 1080p visuals and “enhance gameplay for today’s refined shoot’ ‘em up audience.” Hey, that’s you! Namco Museum Essentials will support trophies, as well as PlayStation Home rewards and worldwide leaderboards. No pricing has been announced.

Additionally, it will be launching a dedicated PlayStation Home Destination which will feature trial versions of Namco Museum Essentials, along with screenshots and trailers of Namco Bandai games. And [email protected] items. Seriously.

Xbox 360 owners have seen some of these games on Xbox LIVE Arcade, but as individual downloads. Being able to grab a nice packaged collection should appeal to fans of the originals, and Xevious: Resurrection is a nice addition. But let’s hear more about those [email protected] items, right!?
