It's been a long 42 years since PAC-MAN arrived! On May 22, 1980, the waka-waka video game character first appeared in arcades. On the occasion of the iconic video game's 42nd anniversary, Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. has partnered with Epic Games to add PAC-MAN-themed products to Fortnite and launched a contest to offer fans the possibility of winning the ultimate prize package.

The game will also be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S and available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

Bandai Namco knows that a birthday celebration isn't complete without music and entertainment, so they're going all out.

For more than 40 years, PAC-MAN has provided pleasure to millions of people throughout the globe, and he's undoubtedly deserved all this attention. When it comes to repaying the favor he's received from his supporters, he's not going to disappoint, even on his birthday. The "PAC-MAN Birthday Sweepstakes" has begun and will continue until May 27, 2022, according to Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc.
