Video Game / The Munchables

The Munchables was a 3D Platform Game developed by Namco Bandai for the Wii. The game combined elements from 2 of Namco's other series, Pac-Man and Katamari Damacy. The game takes place on the happy planet of Star Ving. The game's protagonists are the Munchables, happy, gluttonous creatures that eat from an endless supply of food created by Legendary Orbs. One day, evil Space Pirates arrive and steal the Legendary Orbs. The protagonists, Chomper and Munchy, must retrieve them.
