Retro games are enjoying quite the renaissance, which is fine by us.
The retro game takeover is continuing with the partnering of Panasonic Avionics and the iconic Japanese games developer and publisher Bandai Namco.
Panasonic Avionics designs and sells customized in-flight entertainment to many large airlines, and they're now adding the likes of Pac-Man and Dig Dug to their entertainment roster. Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation spoke to the partnership, saying, "The gaming industry is one of the few that have seen significant growth amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. This demonstrates the value global consumers place on games and their unique ability to take players on digital adventures and provide connections to different communities." Well, that's one way to make traveling less exhausting and monotonous.
While Panasonic isn't telling us all of the games we can expect to play in flights, they have confirmed that we'll be able to enjoy Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug.
Would you forego the usual in-flight movies and TV shows to play some retro games instead?
