Cast[edit]

The original Vancouver-based voice actors from the cartoon series did not reprise their roles in this game. Instead, Bandai Namco hired sound-a-like voice actors that work in Los Angeles.

Note: Butt-ler and Dr. Buttocks appear in the game with speaking roles as well, but they went uncredited in the credits' cast list.

Crew[edit]

  • Kevin McMullan - Voice Director
  • Mami Okada - Casting Director

Reception[edit]

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures has received mixed to positive reviews. Nintendo Life gave 7.0/10, writing "Pac-Man's latest adventure is kid-friendly in the best way: this is a solid, enjoyable 3D platformer that's built with a level of care and polish not often seen in games aimed at this audience."

GameZone's David Sanchez gave Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures a 4.5/10, writing "Ghostly Adventures looks okay — it's certainly nicer to look at than it is to play, that's for sure."[3]

Sequel[edit]

On April 22, Bandai Namco announced a sequel for the video game due in 2014.[4][5]
