404 Game Re:Set Announces Pac-Man and Puyo Puyo Girls

On August 29th 2023, Sega hosted a live streaming event on their official YouTube channel to update players on the future of their current gacha game 404 Game Re:Set, a game about anime girl versions of arcade games that fight against the dictatorship of Sega. During the show, the publisher laid out their September plans for the game. Before any of the exciting announcements, the publisher announced that in an upcoming patch the game’s lvl cap would be raised from lvl 92 to lvl 95.

After this quality of life announcement the next collaboration event was revealed to be a Pac-Man event which would be adding both the morally good Anode and morally dubious Cathode version of the character to the game.

The Anode version of Pac-Man be added to the gacha as a three star character with her own rate up banner. During the event players will receive summon tickets which can be used only on her banner to give them a chance of receiving her. She is a yellow color Attacker-type unit whose Burst Skill will be an AoE attack that will strike multiple foes.

A trailer featuring her art and a showcase of her Burst Skill was upload to Sega’s official Youtube channel after the stream.

The Cathode version of Pac-Man is a magenta colored Supporter-type unit who specializes in buffing the attack power of allies, her Burst Skill allows her to heal as well. She will be added to the game as a welfare unit that all players can obtain upon completion of the Pac-Man event.

Cathode Pac-Man will feature as the antagonist of the upcoming event, with the premise being that she got so hungry she ate 404 Game Re:Set and Sega never released the app. Her boss fight will include a remix of a classic Pac-Man track.

In addition to these new playable characters (referred to in-game as a cast), two new figurines will be added to game’s gacha. These figurines will be of the character’s Pac-Man and the ghosts from the classic arcade game. Equipping them to your characters will offer various stat and skill bonuses.

The Pac-Man collaboration event will begin on August 31st after maintenance. Once the maintenance has completed, all players will receive a free 1,500 gacha gems.

Other September Casts

During the Stream, Sega showed off some of the other Casts that would be added to the game from mid to late September. Beginning with showing off the art for Rail Chase (Anode), a classic Sega arcade game that’s a fair bit more obscure than the other featured games. Currently there are no details about what type of unit Rail Chase is or her Burst Skills.

It was also confirmed that the beloved Sega franchise Puyo Puyo will be the main antagonist of 404 Game Re:Set’s 8th story chapter. To reflect this, the title screen will be changed to feature both Puyo Puyo and Pac-Man. The Anode version’s design will primarily be based on Arle while the Cathode’s design will be modeled after Suketoudara. Both the Anode and Cathode versions of Puyo Puyo will be released in late September.

New Battle Mode: RAIS

During the stream an entirely new mode was announced for 404 Game Re:Set. The Ribbon Attack Infinite System (Shortened to RAIS) will be a score attack mode where players will fight against a large raid boss in an attempt to get the highest score.

Unlike many of the game’s extra modes, this one will be entirely PvE focused as opposed to PvP focused. This changed focus will allow players to further experiment with their party layouts and use some of their less used casts.

This mode is currently in development with no stated release date for the foreseeable future.
