Pac-Man Anniversary

Today marks the 35th anniversary of Pac-Man’s introduction to arcades in Japan. Originally named Puck-Man by Namco, but it was changed to Pac-Man when it arrived in the US by October of 1980. It was changed to avoid vandalism to its arcade name. The success of the original Pac-Man arcade game led to the creation of more than 30 licensed game spin-off, a plethora of branded products, and a couple of animated TV series.
