NAMCO NETWORKS EXPANDS PRESENCE WITH ONLINE RETAIL STORE: CLUBNAMCO.COM

SAN JOSE, Calif. (March 20, 2006) – Looking for that exclusive PAC-MAN T-shirt or toy? Building on its mobile game success, Namco Networks, a leading publisher and developer of wireless games and content, today announced that PAC-MAN fans everywhere can purchase exclusive Namco game and character-themed memorabilia from www.clubNAMCO.com.

Recognizing the overwhelming consumer demand for souvenirs that capture the essence of Namco’s games, the company is expanding its online presence to provide merchandise from these arcade classics that have become mega-hits on the mobile platform. In addition to these popular collectibles, in the near future, Namco Networks plans to offer exclusive video game ringtones and cell phone wallpaper on the site.

clubNAMCO.com features products, some of which were previously unavailable in the Americas, commemorating arcade hits, such as PAC-MAN®, Ms. PAC-MAN®, Galaga® and Dig Dug®. Especially popular and generating high demand is a series of mechanical plush PAC-MAN toys, which debuted at the consumer technology show, DigitalLife 2005 in New York City. These battery-powered toys feature the infamous and evasive PAC-MAN and those pesky ghosts, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. Other game-themed products include t-shirts, collectible figures and even a PAC-MAN shaped cushion.

“There has been so much enthusiasm around the 25th anniversary of PAC-MAN and the related merchandise showcased at E3 and DigitalLife,” said Scott Rubin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Namco America. “We are excited to give fans of PAC-MAN and other retro classics the opportunity to purchase these specialty items they’ve been waiting for. clubNAMCO.com is the next step in Namco Network’s vision of providing game fans with a complete mobile and online entertainment experience.”
