Revisiting gaming's classics isn't an easy task, especially when you're talking about nostalgic titans like "Pac-Man" and "Galaga."
But team director Tadashi Iguchi and his team at Namco Bandai proved skeptics wrong with the acclaimed success of "Pac-Man C.E." and, most recently, "Galaga Legions."
Both projects have been deemed remakes, but Iguchi doesn't subscribe to that label. The designer told MTV Multiplayer over e-mail that he considers them "reconstructions." Specifically, Iguchi views "Galaga Legions" as a "mutation" from the original, whereas "Pac-Man C.E." was a "legitimate evolution."
The reason? "Pac-Men" creator Toru Iwatani kept shooting down their ideas.
