The lights are on
Nintendo has announced Pac-Man will be a fighter in the new Super Smash Bros. game, and he will have his own stage, as well.
He is the newer 3D Pac-Man from the Pac-Land series. For some of his attacks, however, he turns into the classic 2D Pac-Man. We watched him throw out a pellet and then turn into the 2D muncher and dive for it damaging anyone in his path. Pac-Man can also create fruit bombs and throw then at enemies. For his Final Smash, he turns into a gigantic 2D Pac-Man.
Game director Masahiro Sakurai said that he wants to make Super Smash Bros. the premiere character fighter in the industry. It certainly seems like the game is on the way to becoming that; if it's not already.
