Overcooked: Special Edition
– Working as a team, you and up to four* fellow chefs must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the paying customers storm out in a huff. Overcooked: Special Edition features all the exhilarating (and enraging) kitchens from the main game, as well as both expansions, “The Lost Morsel” and “Festive Seasoning.” Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites – there isn’t mushroom for error, and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens!

NAMCO MUSEUM – Play some of the most popular Namco games, anytime, anywhere! Enjoy classics such as PAC-MAN™, GALAGA™, SPLATTERHOUSE™ and TOWER OF DRUAGA™, or play games including ROLLING THUNDER™, SKYKID™ or TANK FORCE™ with friends and family.

Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
Wait, they want us to $30 for Namco Museum, where the only game that's at all unique/rare is Pac-Man Vs, but they're giving away the multiplayer mode of Pac-Man Vs for free? Am I confused?

And there's still no retail version of Namco Museum, is there? Despite them using a cover art pic to promote the game? Everything is confusing.

Anyone play Overcooked? Thinking about getting it for some multiplayer chaos with the nephew.

NEW 2DS XL tomorrow!!! I'm all in on this. Anyone else picking up this (kinda strange) new (old?) hardware?


You just confused me, haha. Anyone got insight on this?

@cooliocuneo @GameDadGrant
I read somewhere that Pac-Man Vs. can be played multiplayer with only one copy of the game, a la Download Play multiplayer on DS/3DS. I'm guessing one person buys Namco Museum and the others download "NAMCO MUSEUM (PAC-MAN VS. Free Multiplayer-only Ver.)" from the eShop so they can join in on the fun.

@GameDadGrant Sorry, my confusion is viral!

@nate38 Yep, just read the same thing. Only one person needs a copy of the game, the others download the multiplayer "app". Two Switches are required for up to 4 players (one Pac-Man, 3 ghosts).

Nice, thanks for the info! Now, follow-up question: where/when can I download this? I can't find it on the eShop.

@GameDadGrant I think it releases Friday (tomorrow).

@Mop it up

Oh. I wonder if it'll get a midnight release? I guess I'll play the "Waiting Game" until then.

Thanks very much!
