Variants

Buckle up buttercup! After the original releases of Namco Museum Volumes 1 and 3, Namco realized people were in it for Pac-man and Ms. Pac-Man. So they re-released these two volumes with all new covers to let the casual folk see their favorite arcade games right off the bat.

Jewel Case Re-Release with “Screenshot” cover. Confirmed 1 ring hub on the disc.

The game was eventually re-released in the new artwork as a standard Greatest Hits…but it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

Misprints

Rough seas caused two very peculiar screw ups in the Greatest Hist assembly. The first of the two known misprints found Namco Museum 3’s back insert used instead of Volume 1. This has been confirmed multiple times by sealed copies.

Greatest Hits Misprint – Namco Museum 3’s Back Insert in Museum 1’s case.

The other more peculiar misprint is that some copies came printed with Rugrats in Paris: The Movie game printed on the disc. Sadly there is no way to spot the game organically. You need to load up the game or toss it in a PC to see the files.

Trivia

  • The original print run allowed all 5 game cases to be lined up and spell NAMCO.
  • In Japan, a 6th unscheduled release called the ‘Encore’ edition was announced. To get around the lettering issue, Namco made the cover their registered trademark symbol. Thus a new full set read NAMCO┬«. Those cheeky designers.
