Re-released ‘Blocks’ version variant. – Used to attract casual gamers who would recognize Pac-Man on the cover, as opposed to ignoring a giant N. Of note is that they corrected the humorous mistake of the ESRB being listed as “Arcade Classic” on the original print.
- Namco Museum Vol. 3 – M would also gain the ‘Boxes’ variant, thanks to Mrs. Pac-Man’s success. Essentially the two volumes form a sort of ‘His and Hers’ arcade collection lead by the Pacs.
- The American Namco Set is actually missing a release. In Japan, Namco released an ‘Encore’ volume that contained King & Balloon, Motos, Sky Kid, Rolling Thunder, Wonder Momo, Rompers, and Dragon Saber. The best part of this release is the cheeky approach they took to keep the theme going – the cover bears the Registered Trademark emblem, so that all 6 cases spell out NAMCO®.
- In addition to Encore, Japan got a special collector’s case that held all 6 cases in one binder.
- The full set was eventually combined and condensed onto a single DVD for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Game Cube with a catch – not all games made the cut.
