Pac-Man and Tekken take starring role in new Bandai Namco online store

The video game studio has teamed with Spreadshirt to launch a new dedicated online store featuring a roster of new merchandise for gaming fans.

Bandai Namco Entertainment is launching a new collection of Pac-Man, Tekken, Galaga and Tales of merchandise via a new devoted online store.

In a new partnership with the ecommerce platform Spreadshirt, the new collection arrives in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the now iconic gaming character, Pac-Man.

The range of merchandise is now available via the Spreadshirt website, where gaming fans can pick up official products including t-shirts, hoodies, sportswear and accessories such as mugs, phone cases, bags, posters and canvases, all designed around Bandai’s popular games.

Via the site, fans will also be able to customise their t-shirt in the design, colour and style of their own choosing.

“We are all very excited about the long-awaited online store which is dedicated to our fans,” said Herve Hoerdt, vice president of marketing and digital at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe.

“Our goal is to offer high quality, exclusive and selected items that show our passion and love for video games and entertainment. Spreadshirt’s print-on-demand offering makes it easy to offer all of our characters without the levels of expenditure and risk normally associated with merchandising.”

Hoerdt has declared that the online store is ‘just the beginning’ of a planned roster of projects to bring its iconic gaming properties to fans in new ways.
