The bootleg Ms. Pac-Man machine.

In September 2019, Bandai Namco Entertainment filed a lawsuit against AtGames for attempting to release a bootleg Ms. Pac-Man arcade machine. While AtGames previously had the license to Pac-Man, they didn't at this time, and never had the Ms. Pac-Man rights under any form. According to the lawsuit, AtGames has even claimed that they bought out General Computer Corporation's partial rights to the game, a completely illegal move and a claim Bandai Namco is yet to even verify.

The lawsuit also mentions the Bandai Namco Flashback Blast, a licensed Pac-Man console. The version of the system Bandai Namco approved featured arcade games, while the version released had unapproved Famicom/NES games (including several from Tengen, with their copyrights intact). This console's release caused damage to Bandai Namco's reputation due to false advertising.
