During the Spring 2001 Tokyo Game Show (TGS), Namco showed off three new games for the WonderSwan Color. One of these was a Pac-Man game, titled Super GPS Pac-Man (GPS超!!パックマン). The game would use a new GPS accessory to connect to the NTT DoCoMo Network. It would then convert the user's current location into a maze, with the streets acting as tunnels and moving vehicles in the area acting as ghosts. The gameplay would be the same as a standard Pac-Man game and would feature Pac-Man eating pellets while running away from ghosts.[1]

Both the game and GPS accessory were quietly canceled, and no trace of either have remained.

It never actually worked, but I thought my Wonderswan Color was broken, so I get rid of it, and the games...

You do know that this game was never released (hence it's presence on the wiki)?

Of course I do. I must've had a promo copy or a test copy or maybe even something different. Also, just so you know, no everything on the wiki is unreleased.

Something interesting I've found is that the WonderGate was actually released. However, it looks nothing like the picture in the article: https://www....ff/img_3039/

That makes me think that the accessory in the picture was going to be something new.

Now I'm curious, why is the WonderGate mentioned at all? The picture in the article doesn't seem to show it at all, so would the game have only used the GPS addon?
