    Along with the Namco Museum Archive, Bandai Namco has just released the Namcot Collection exclusively on the Switch. This collection features various classic Namco titles, including the likes of Pac-Man, Galaga, and more.

    Why Namcot? It’s not a typo; instead, Namcot is the brand that Namco used for console titles from 1984 to 1995.
