Due to copyright disputes, Ms Pac-Man will not be featured in the Pac-Land reissue, in its place Pac-Mom.
Pac-Land: addio a Ms Pac-Man
As reported by VGC, a Twitter user noted that the Arcade Archives version of Pac-Land released yesterday (April 7) features the replacement of Ms Pac-Man and Baby Pac in front of the Pac-House. Instead, there is the pink Pac-Mom directly from Pac-Man Museum +. Did you get lost among all these Pacs? Don’t worry, let’s caress.
so apparently I found out that the Arcade Archives release of Pac-Land that comes out tomorrow was modified to replace Ms. Pac-Man (as well as Baby Pac) to have the new Pac-Mom character from Pac-Man Museum +.

Bandai Namco, developer of the video game, is currently in a legal dispute over the copyrights of some characters. In particular, these are some employees of the General Computer Corporation GCC, who have created some of the iconic characters of the Pac-Man universe, such as Ms Pac. The original Pac-Land was first launched in 1984 by Bandai Namco, based on an American cartoon series.
The re-edition will also arrive soon on Nintendo Switch, while on May 27 another collection dedicated to the famous arcade will arrive: Pac-Man Museum +.
