Bandai Namco and Sega have announced that some of gaming’s most legendary characters will be taking turns starring in each other’s mobile games. Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man will be joining up in Sonic Dash. Sonic the Hedgehog will be hitting the ground running in Pac-Man. Both games and crossover content will be available on iOS and Android mobile devices.
Players who take part in the epic mash-up between today and Tuesday, March 20 can unlock the Sonic Maze content in Pac-Man forever. After this period elapses, the Maze will no longer be unlockable.
Pac-Man / Sonic Crossover
Here’s the official PR:
Sonic’s longtime nemesis, Dr. Eggman, is at it again. Spurned by being left out of Sonic Dash’s fifth-year anniversary party, the evil villain conspires with BASH the Ghost to exact revenge in Sonic Dash. Seeing their friend in distress, Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man enter the game to help him. Simultaneously, Dr. Eggman has kidnapped Sonic’s animal friends and the world’s fastest hedgehog must enter Pac-Man’s mazes in order to save them.
In Sonic Dash, players can run as Pac-Man or Ms. Pac-Man and compete in four alternating one-week special character events, collecting Power Pellets as they race towards the finish line, or face off against Bash the Ghost in an all-new boss battle. Players who collect enough of Pac-Man’s classic fruits, bells and keys during the event are able to permanently earn those characters.
Just as Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man enter Sonic Dash to help their friend, Sonic speeds into the PAC-MAN mobile game world to save his kidnapped animal buddies. Players entering during the limited time event will play as Sonic as he dashes through a revamped maze styled as the classic Green Hill Zone, collecting rings and boosting through Moto Bugs. The update also features six unique stages and free Sonic tournaments.
