'Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions' (3DS) Save Data Fix

by Rainier on Aug. 3, 2011 @ 1:59 a.m. PDT

Pac-Man and Galaga enter a new dimension of fun with two brand new titles, each taking advantage of the 3DS system's unique and innovative technology.

Pac-Man Tilt turns Pac-Man’s world on its head with motion sensing controls and an eye-catching neon aesthetic.  Galaga 3D Impact places players directly into the gunner seat against an advancing Galaga armada across an exciting on-rails action game with gyroscopic controls.  Both Pac-Man Tilt and Galaga 3D Impact will be available together in Pac-Man & Galaga Dimension.

It has recently been reported that Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions for the Nintendo 3DS system lacks an option to erase data that has been saved to the game’s cartridge. 

Namco Bandai Games issued the following statement:

I wanted to inform everyone that saved data can be reset by holding the A,B,X,Y,L and R buttons when booting up the game from the 3DS system's home screen.  We are sorry for the confusion and hope you enjoy playing Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions

Pac-Man’s world has been unhinged in Pac-Man Tilt.  Take control of Pac-Man in twisting 2D platforming levels filled with perilous obstacles, power pellets and wandering ghosts.  Using the accelerometer capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS system, players will be able to literally tilt Pac-Man’s world from side to side in order to solve devious environmental puzzles and sneak past roaming enemies.  Pac-Man can also use pinball flippers, spring boards and other objects placed throughout each level to help him reach each level’s goal.  Tilting the screen when Pac-Man has a running start will cause him to roll into a ball, giving him an extra boost of speed and access to narrow tunnels.  Strategically using all of Pac-Man’s abilities will be the only way to complete this all-new and exciting adventure.

Galaga 3D Impact immerses players into the role of a gunner on a space ship against an all-out war with the dreaded Galaga aliens.  Using the Nintendo 3DS system’s gyroscopic and 3D technology, players are able to maneuver their perspective within the seat of the turret to aim and shoot enemies as they try to lay siege against the human race.  The player’s real-life movements correspond to the action represented on-screen in an impressive mash-up of arcade shooter and virtual reality.
