Xbox Live debuts new Pac-Man from game’s creator

How many quarters dropped into the slot is Toru Iwatani responsible for? He created Pac-Man, the wildly popular arcade game, in 1981 for Namco. Today, Microsoft said, Iwatani, a Tokyo Polytechnic University professor, has again put his mark on the Pac-Man franchise.

Namco Bandai is releasing “Pac-Man Championship Edition” for download on Xbox Live Arcade starting tomorrow. It will have the first new mazes in 26 years, along with several other new bells and whistles, according to a Microsoft news release.

Microsoft held the Xbox 360 Pac-Man World Championships in New York City today. The finalists competed on the new game and winner Carlos Daniel Borrego, 27, of Pachuca, Mexico, was crowned by Iwatani himself.

Iwatani says this marks the end of his corporate career. See coverage from Reuters.
