PAC-MAN ™ & © BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.


This Thursday, December 17, 2020, we will induct PAC-MAN™ into the Comic-Con Museum Character Hall of Fame and we couldn’t be more excited!  The celebration will kick off at 4:00 PM PST on our Comic-Con Museum YouTube Channel and we hope you will join us! Register here to be part of the festivities.

We’re all aware of the impact PAC-MAN™ made on the evolution of video games and that his character has permeated nearly every aspect of popular culture, but there is so much more to him. During our celebration, you’ll learn the story of PAC-MAN™ as we explore his past, present, and future.  Tune in to hear directly from his creator Toru Iwatani, celebrate his accomplishments to date, and get the inside scoop on where PAC-MAN™ is headed next!

Since a celebration wouldn’t be complete without a party, our ceremony will conclude with a dedicated performance by Ken Ishii, Japanese DJ, techno artist, composer, producer, and originator of the theme song for the night “JOIN THE PAC.”
