Siliconera attended the presentation with director Masahiro Sakurai for the new Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, where they revealed that Pac-Man is a playable character in the upcoming games. The new trailer gives us a first look at his fighting style.
Pac-Man hungers for battle, and he immediately shows us some of his moves that involve the fruits and ghosts from the classic Namco arcade game. As previously reported, Pac-Man can shoot water from his fire hydrant and also turn into his arcade self as a side attack.
Looks like Kirby might also have some eating competition, as Pac-Man can also grow huge and eat things. Sakurai also emphasized Pac Man’s older design over the new one, as he’s one of the oldest characters in games.
