Namco Bandai will bring Pac-Man Championship Edition, Tōru Iwatani's (Pac-Man creator) brilliant reinvention of the series, to iPhone and iPod Touch before the end of the year, according to a report from G4.

Previously an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive (with a mobile port last month), Pac-Man CE turned a lot of heads when it debuted two years ago -- we even held it up as the best downloadable game of 2007 at Gamasutra -- as it impressed both new and old fans with its new music, mazes, game modes, leaderboards, time limits, vibrant graphics, and more.

Namco Bandai hasn't yet revealed a firm date or pricing for the iPhone port. Pac-Man CE will join several other Pac-Man titles the company has released to the App Store -- Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, and Pac-Man Remix -- all of which are currently priced at $5.99.
