Pac-Man joins the Super Smash Bros. roster

The classic dot-eating, ghost-avoiding character of Pac-Man will be joining the Super Smash Bros. roster on Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo has confirmed.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai announced the character during a Smash Bros Invitational event in Los Angeles. By the looks of the reveal trailer, Pac-Man will appear in his 3D form, but also has the ability to transform into his original 2D shape for certain attacks.

“Pac-Man has some interesting abilities like throwing fruit and eating power pellets,” Nintendo wrote on Twitter following the announcement.

Nintendo also revealed that Mr. Game & Watch will return as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros.

The 3DS version of the game is set to release in October, while the Wii U version is scheduled for a holiday 2014 release.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
