I’m gonna preface this with 10 year old me would be having an aneurysm right now! Mario, Sonic and Mega Man brawlin’ it out for supremacy and then BAM! Frickin’ Pac-Man jumps into the fray Wakka-Wakka-ing and swinging his fists!
But I jump ahead of myself! At an E3 developer roundtable, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Pac-Man will be a playable brawler in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros for 3DS.
In the trailer we’re treated to some of his move set that includes reverting to his 2D form to gobble up other combatants, eating power pellets and lobbing pixelated fruit! (Which Nintendo of America cleary thinks is the best part, as shown in this tweet here)
I got most excited when Pac-Man called upon his brethren of other Namco cohorts as special moves including the ship from Galaga, Dig-Dug and the detective mouse cop Mappy!
But the reveals don’t stop there, right at the end Nintendo teased that Mr. Game and Watch could be returning to the roster too! Check out the trailer for yourself below and get start preparing your body to SMASH!
