  • Sebastian Masuda x PAC-MAN Collaboration Celebrates Game’s 40th Anniversary With Merchandise and Art Installation

    13.August.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    Bandai Entertainment is celebrating 40 years of PAC-MAN with a new collaboration with Sebastian Masuda, the artist and art director at the forefront of “kawaii” culture in Japan.

     

    PAC-MAN x Sebastian Masuda: Pop Culture Taken to the Next Level

    BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher whose motto is “More Fun For Everyone.” This summer, the company is dropping a new face into the ghost and fruit-filled maze of their iconic 80’s video game character PAC-MAC. That person is none other than Sebastian Masuda.

     

    The scope of Masuda’s influence is unrivalled. His touch can be seen all across Japanese kawaii culture, ranging from his work on Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s viral hit music video PONPONPON which skyrocketed her career, to Harajuku’s famous concept restaurant KAWAII MONSTER CAFE, the Miracle Gift Parade at Sanrio Puroland, as well as countless work on TV, commercials, advertisements, characters, stage, concerts, and more. He is a leader when it comes to pop culture, and so it is fitting that he follows alongside PAC-MAN into this labyrinth of a collaboration.

     

    Primal Pop (PAC-MAN Mix)

    In celebration of PACMAN‘s 40th anniversary, Sebasian Masuda created a giant art piece entitled Primal Pop (PAC-MAN Mix) which is made up from a mix of historical PAC-MAN merchandise and children’s toys which aims to have the people who see it return the excitement they felt as a child.

     

    The art installation has been placed at the entrance of the BANDAI NAMCO Future Laboratory located inside the BANDAI NAMCO Group office building. It stands 2.9 meters high and 2.6 meters across. As of now, it is only available to see by staff and associates, but you can see a video of it being made below.

    A special collection of merchandise themed on Primal Pop (PAC-MAN Mix) was also released on BANDAI NAMCO’s online store Asobi Store on August 12 so that everyone can enjoy the collaboration. There are plans for overseas releases too.

     

    PAC-MAN: A Game Love the World Over

    PAC-MAN was first released in 1980 and has since become a symbol of pop and gaming culture around the world. With the outbreak of COVID-19, BANDAI NAMCO Studios made PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 free to play on PlayStation®4 , Xbox One, and Steam® between April 24 and May 10 as a way to put a smile of people’s faces while celebrating a game that has become so rooted in pop culture.
