Pac-Man 99 is the latest battle royale game on the block, and it’s exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. On the tracks of Tetris 99 (and the deceased Super Mario Bros. 35), this competitive online game takes a classic video game franchise and injects modern 1v100 (well, 1v98) every man for himself gameplay that’s arguably worth the price of a Nintendo Switch Online sub on its own.
The game is free to online subscribers, but just like Tetris 99, it also features downloadable skins and additional modes that you can take advantage of if you’re willing to pay for it. We’ll assume that a future physical release will bundle all of this DLC on one cartridge – again, just like Tetris 99 – but for now you’ll have to go digital if you want all the extra bonuses.
Below, we’ve rounded up a list of all of the Pac-Man 99 DLC skins available for download, along with pricing information and a little poll at the end – let us know your favorites!
What are Pac-Man 99 custom themes?
While you might be very happy playing the classic Pac-Man skin, there are loads of downloadable retro skins you can use instead. These include several classic Namco games and franchises, such as Galaga, Dig dug, Rolling Thunder and Xevious.
Using a different skin will change the visuals and sound effects, but that has no effect on the gameplay – they just look cool and give the game a different retro flavor. He’s still called Pac-Man 99, even without Pac-Man.
How many Pac-Man 99 DLC themes are there?
There are currently 29 themes available, although one of them is the default Pac-Man skin. So 28 more skins, if you want.
How much do Pac-Man 99 DLC themes cost?
Classic character skins are available individually for $ 1.99 / £ 1.69 / € 1.99 each, although you can purchase the DLC bundle that unlocks all skins plus ‘Unlock Mode’ (game modes additional) for $ 29.99 / £ 24.99 / € 29.99.
