Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 and 2 announcements leaked

The western Namcot Collection.

Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 + 2

The Microsoft Store has listed unannounced Namco classic games collections Namco Museum Archives Vol. 1 and Namco Museum Archives Vol. 2. Both are planned for release on June 18.

The collections seem to be the western counterpart of Namcot Collection, the Switch-only collection due out on June 18 in Japan. Most the initial 11 Namcot Collection titles can be obtained through purchasing each collection (excluding Wagyan Land, Star Luster, Family Jockey, and Yokai Dochuki), including the newly announced 8-bit demastered Pac-Man Championship Edition.

Since the announcements were leaked via the Microsoft Store, Xbox One is currently the only confirmed platform. But it is safe to assume the collections will also release on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.

Here is an overview of each collection, via the Microsoft Store:
