Sakurai Explains Pac-Man’s Bonus Fruit Move In Super Smash Bros.


Last night, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai took to Miiverse to highlight one of Pac-Man’s moves in the game.


“Pac-Man’s standard special move, Bonus Fruit,” Sakurai wrote, alongside the screenshot above. “As you charge this move, the bonuses will change, and all of them have different characteristics and movement patterns when thrown.”


“The bonuses cycle in the same order as in the original game, and the charge-up period doubles once you cycle beyond the orange.”


Super Smash Bros. is in development for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
