Pac-Man Joins Super Smash Bros For Wii U And Nintendo 3DS

Bandai Namco’s chief mascot has joined the Super Smash Bros. roster. Pac-Man is featured as a playable character in the upcoming fighting title for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The yellow gaming icon’s abilities include throwing fruit and eating power pellets. The next Super Smash Bros. launches October 3rd on 3DS and in the holiday season on Wii U.

      1. And sonic was a sega boy. What’s your point? This game is all about rivalries getting settled what better way than nintendo vs sega vs sony. Besides crash is now owned by activision I believe.

    1. pink0crystal0midbus

      Ew! X( Crash is one ugly looking character, plus he doesn’t belong in a Nintendo Brawler.

      That’s like wishing for Spyro or Ratchet and Clank. They just feel more at home with other companies.

    2. There are few of us out there but I totally want Crash Bandicoot. I don’t see how some say he wouldn’t fit. He’s perfect for Smash and a possible inclusion however unlikely it is. He was made for the purpose to rival Sonic and Mario and was quite popular in the PS1 days. He still has quite a fanbase. Now that he’s been bought out and has been on a Nintendo console, I think it’s time to make a comeback and what better place than Smash? The trio of rivals all in one place. Aside from him I can see two others being perfect as well. Bomberman and Rayman. Could you see all those rivals battling it out! SI much awesomeness in one place. Crash for Smash!

  1. Nice I knew they would add him and in his classic design too. Wondering if they’ll add Snake but doubt it. I just hope they add Captain Falcon before the release date.

    1. The FNC figures “meiibo” basicly confirm that their well be DLC, so their well most likely be new characters, and possibly even levels and items.

      1. Judging by some of the moves for the wui brawlers it feels as if those moves by him were given to the them. And even pit has his forward special move now.

  2. Lol. It’s funny how two characters (Mii and Pac-man) got in despite the fact that everyone on Miiverse was strongly against the idea of having them as fighters. Mainly because people said they’d be bland. But wow were they wrong. Mii looks freaking incredible and I’ll definitely be using mine. I never cared for either Pac-man or Mii, but I stand corrected when I thought they’d be stupid characters.

    1. I hope to God they didn’t screw this game up like did MK8 I still think the original MK is better than the MK8 so far. Dear God I hope they didn’t do the same with SSB. Both my copies are already paid for in advance and I am waiting for them both to come out !!

      1. What did they screw up in Mario Kart 8? I think it’s great. Although, I’ve only played Mario Kart 7 before I played 8, so I may not notice that many things compared to what you might have.

      2. only thing wrong with MK8 is the battle mode, you probably didn’t play wii and 7, I’ve realized 8 is not newbie friendly at all, so you’ll know nothing how to control the characters if you skipped those games.

        1. I have Mario Kart 7. I just never go to the battle mode. I like the races a lot more. Even when I first started playing MK8, it took time to adapt to the Gamepad after playing with the 3DS, but for me, it only took a short time since I played 7. But I know what you mean. MK8 can be brutal at times if you’re new.

          1. The Gamepad isn’t any differently from a regular controller. The thing they added is a giant screen in the middle and the ZR and ZL buttons.

          1. That is true I waited 20 minutes while texted away just trying to get a match going with frantic items and nothing.

  3. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

    “Pac-Man won’t work!” “Pac-Man’s moveset will suck!” “Classic Pac-Man can’t be used to keep with the classic look of Megaman!” HA HA HA HA HA!!! Now what, bitches on Miiverse!? Now to just reveal Ridley as playable & that will be the icing on the cake for me.

    1. pacman makes since, he’s the same size as everyone else, ridley the size of a dragon, also he’s a stage boss

      1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

        Time to shrink Ridley down to size then. Also, he’s not a stage boss til Sakurai outright says it. He loves to tease people on Miiverse. So for now, Ridley popping up in the boss part of the Smash Direct is just another tease from Sakurai, not an actual confirmation.

    2. pink0crystal0midbus

      I know what you mean. I have argued with like, at least, 20 people over how Pac-Man’s moveset would be NOTHING like Sonic’s.

      Yeah, you heard that right. For some reason, people thought Pac-Man would be a Sonic clone.

      I was like “What drugs are you ON?!”

      Needless to say, I was right, and they were butthurt wrong. Sucks to be morons.

      1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

        I’m pretty sure I saw a few people saying that, too, about Pac-Man would end up being a Sonic clone awhile back. xD

  4. Also, if the Wii U version is releasing “holiday”, shouldn’t there already be an estimated date by now? They said Smash 3DS releases in October. And I am pretty sure that October is pretty dang close to ‘holiday’. Lol. This better not come out December 31st, 2014.

    1. the wiiu version is obviously no where complete, sakuria even went out on stage basically saying, if the game breaks just roll with it, it’s not finish before the invitational

    2. pink0crystal0midbus

      They don’t want to tell people the date so people will overlook the 3DS version and buy the Wii U version. A definitive date will give people the ability to say “Well that’s not ‘too’ far away, I’ll just wait for that.”

      :Holiday” is a bit ambiguous and will make people think it could come out later than they hope which means they will buy the 3DS version out of pure lust.

      1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

        Exactly. If Sakurai shocks the naysayers again with say Ridley as playable, I’ll be buying the 3DS version just to get ready & fresh for the Wii U version. If not, I’ll just wait for the Wii U version. Either way, I got plenty of other great newcomers to use like Pac-Man, Rosalina, & Palutena! I still remember the hate from people when Sakurai revealed Rosalina as a newcomer. >.<

    1. pink0crystal0midbus

      Yeah, I thought so too.

      It’s weird that they would show him, but not entirely reveal him. Makes you wonder what is going on.

  5. Love me some Nintendo…pacman looks like a fun character to play…and I’ll definitely be putting my etecoon mii (shooter) into battle.

    1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      Hopefully not. I don’t want Sakurai to give his friend’s character another free pass.

    1. pink0crystal0midbus

      Everyone knew it would be Bandai-Namco’s mascot. As much as some people wanted someone from the Tales series, you “had” to have known it was pretty much impossible, right?

    1. Ew. Everytime I hear that phrase it reminds me of his ugly son. I like that they sticked to this model and not using a dumb mech. His moveset is also creative.

      1. You are right, Pac Jr. had really let himself go ….. in a bad way. Those blue eyes and teeth make him look like some freaky abomination. Not to mention they made the real Pac Man some middle aged brown hat wearing man that died canonically before the show started. *shudders*

  6. First, i watched it and freak out at my gf’s house, later i watched it again, and i shed no one, but many gamer tears watching the amazing trailer :’)

  7. pleeeeease…..pleaaaase announce Chosen Undead as the other bandai namco mascot. i will poop my pants and die if they announce chosen undead.

  8. Nintendo is my Blood

    We now have Namco’s, Sega’s, Capcom’s and Nintendo’s flagship characters all in one game, y’know Sony, it’s not too late to offer Ratchet and Clank to us, I am sure we can accommodate

    Master Chief, go fuck yourself

      1. You are kind of a fag. I hope I never converse with a person like you in real life. Legends? It’s video games, stop taking it so seriously. “Goodness me, these characters are legends, no character compares HEHE (nerd laugh)” Okay cool man, keep up the good work. “Nintendo Commander Fagraxis”

        1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

          Wow. Tell him not to take it seriously yet here you are getting butthurt over people’s opinions. >.<

            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

              And then it says ” I want to give mynintendonews a chance”…

              Yes by insulting its fans and games…

              This world is just populated by abominations that must be deleted…

              1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                Yes. Exterminate them all. The abominations include the Nazi wannabes, racists, religious extremists, & anyone else that pushes their beliefs & opinions on others. I have some beliefs & opinions but I don’t try to force it on anyone. People like sasori & Donko on the other hand…

                1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                  (I keep this up & I’ll have to chant the Dalek’s famous “Exterminate!” order. xD)

                2. So you basically called Nintendo commander abominaton, because he is one of those who push their beliefs and opinions on others.

                  1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                    No because unlike some of these people like Donko, Nostalgia_w, & sasori, he is mostly just role playing his namesake. What’s their pathetic excuse for being assholes?

                    1. Nintendo is my Blood

                      Well judging from Sasori being an asshole from that abomination of a cartoon, id say the Narutard is doing a good job emulating him

                      To be like the asshole, you must become the asshole

                      the little fag does live by this statement

                    2. Sorry, but “He’s just roleplaying” is not an excuse for acting like an asshole either. Is it really so difficult to show some respect to people who enjoy different kinds of games than he does? Or people who simply don’t agree with his opinions? He is basically doing the same thing as Donko, Nostalgia & Co., just in a different way of execution, to be very honest. Well, in my eyes, at least.

                    3. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      I love how all these “Anonymous” always defends the haters, homophobes, racists etc etc and bashes me for being the worst one in this entire planet…

                      This is why humanity must be eliminated…

                    4. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                      Yeah. You’re not fully serious when you say stuff like “eliminate the human race” yet you are on the same level as Donko & Nostalgia_w it would seem. I will give sasori a little credit for being a step up from those two losers since he didn’t wish death on a sick Iwata. But even then, a loser is still a loser so sasori still sucks.

                    5. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      They are a typical specimen where they cannot stand an individual or a company to do what they want and not follow the sheep masses…

                    6. When I said he’s basically doing the same, I was referring to hating on other companies or their fans. That’s why I said “different execution. Besides, I’m almost sure I’ve seen Commander telling others to kill themselves, but as I said, that wasn’t the point of my comment.
                      And I’m not defending anyone. Just because there are people who do worse things, doesn’t mean the things you do and say are any less bad.

              1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                Oh good. Finally people like GOD & Donko will quit trying to act like your opinions are irrelevant. Then again, they’ll find something else to complain about since they have it in for ya.

                1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                  I’m their purpose in life, it’s pathetic…

                  But again, I have always had lives in my hands…

                1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                  Just like we doubt you’ll actually buy the the newest Xbox from Microsoft nicknamed Xbomb. It’s literally DYNOMITE!! XD

          1. Who are you even to look down on people like that? Don’t act like you’re something better than others, it’s a disgusting way to behave.
            You’re way worse than any Xbox or Playstation fanboy I’ve ever met in my entire life. And believe me, that’s not very easy for someone to achieve. Maybe you should reconsider the way you talk with people, especially strangers you literally know nothing about, because the way you are acting right now isn’t only disrespectful but also really annoying.
            In all the years I’ve spent on this website, I’ve never seen anyone who made Nintendo’s fans and supporters look as bad as you do. And you can believe me again when I repeat myself and say that isn’t very easy for someone to achieve, because I’ve seen all kinds of people on here.

            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

              And if you’ve seen all kinds of people here then you should clearly have known how much he bashes me for no reason at all since months and he even wishes Lord Iwata to die along his family…

              And then I’m the worst one?…

              You’re all pathetic…

              1. I didn’t say you’re the worst person. I said you’re the worst in terms of being a fanboy. Telling others to kill themselves has nothing to do with being a fanboy, which means, I wasn’t taking those “death wishes” others have expressed into consideration.
                And also, I’ve seen you “bash” supporters of Sony and Microsoft without any kind of reason countless times, so what exactly is your point? You’re doing the same, yet you are complaining about others doing it. And even if they do bash you with no reason, why not ignore them? You’re acting like a child, going all “But they started first :(((“. Seriously, show some maturity.

                1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                  And I only attack the idiots on this site…

                  If Sony and Microsoft fans talks with respect, they are given the same…

                  1. Not really. I’ve seen you bring up “Xbots” and “Sonyans” absolutely randomly a billion times already. And a lot of those comments weren’t even replies to other people.

                    1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

                      And? Those are just his terms for their fans, good or bad. Sonyans actually sounds awesome if you’re pronouncing it the way I am. As for Xbots, it’s Microsoft. I think the name kind of fits. And that name isn’t the most original but it sounds good to me.

                    2. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      To be honest I really don’t like Xboxes or the majority of its fans but my “hatred” in this site is just overexagurated…

                    3. Calling it “acting” doesn’t make it less disrespectful or less annoying. Maybe you could try to change your attitude a little instead of hiding behind excuses.
                      And obviously, “Sonyans” and “Xbots” weren’t the actual insults he had expressed towards them, I never said that.

      1. ???? Master Queef?? How old are you guys? Man, I always try to give mynintendonews a chance, but shit, the mynintendonews community is composed of retards. I’m sorry if I come off as a dick, but I have to be honest with you. I have an image of what kind of person you are, and I am imagining a chubby fat guy who laughs at strange jokes. Good luck in life.

        1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

          Why so serious? xD I don’t know about Nintendo is my Blood & Quadraxis but I’m just kidding about Master Queef, I mean, Chief. I have respect for the character & the series he hales (Hales, halo. Get it? Ah. Terrible pun anyway.) from & what it did for the original Xbox. But by all means, keep that stick up your ass. Good luck to you in life.

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            I just love when they say I take video games “seriously” and then they are the ones getting extreme butthurt by my comments that has nothing to do with them in any way…

            Pathetic creatures…

            1. Lol. You’re comparing a squirrel to a super human in armor. If you compared Kratos vs master chief, I wouldn’t have bashed on Kratos… Btw I’m not an Xbot. I have a wii u, x1, and a ps4(unfortunately). I enjoy all types of games and I’m not a brainwashed tryhard wannabe troll like you are.

            2. You do take video games too seriously though. You’re a fag bro. I seriously bet that you’re a fucking loser in real life. You may be this Nintendo commander in your digital life, but in real life you’re a nobody. And I’m not even mad btw haha.

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                1. You call me fag…

                2. You assume so many wrong things about me…

                3. You ar enothing but the troll…

          2. And thanks for the good luck. I was accepted to a great university for engineering this year, so my life is pretty much set. Good luck to you as well. Idk why I said shit to you, I guess commander dickrider is the guy I was supposed to make fun of.

        2. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

          Besides, you just bashed Ratchet & Clank by calling them fags because you’re mad about him insulting Master Chief because he doesn’t like the character. So I wonder what that makes you?

    1. haha what?? Ratchet and Clank are the biggest fags when compared to Master Chief…… lol…. man.. you sony fanboys are so pathetic. Why must you talk shit on games that aren’t on your platform?

      1. Ratchet and clank saved like, 4 galaxies, if I am correct (not 100% sure on this) that is 3 more than master chief.

    2. Halo is the only reason to ever buy an Xbox product. Probably already be dead if it weren’t for him.

  9. So nintendo WON e3 hands down and that faggot Gay Commander still doesnt have a wii u

    Its funny that Bitch KATAMARI,Zorbo1234567,Eczema and that Sorry ass Nigerian Ape, who pretends he isnt a nintendo fanboy havent said a word

    Hahahahahahahaha lol

    Mute Faggaddy fags

  10. I did not see this coming haha! This looks like it’s going to be the best smash yet. Pacman, Megaman, Sonic, Mario characters in a game like this, is pretty phenomenal.

  11. first these morons were comparing splatoon to distiny and calling splatoon an innovative shooter now there hyping pac man. lol to much stupidity cant be comprehended.

    1. Ignoring since when was AC, COD or GTA innovative shooters BTW? But because they are on Xbox and Sony consoles those non innovative games won’t get criticized.

    2. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      You’re right. Too much stupidity can’t be comprehended. Your very existence is interesting, sasori, with how stupid you are. You will be a subject of many scientists to come.

  12. IDK WTF is up with people complaining about this shit? Everyone should have realized the day they found out that Namco is helping out Smash Bros. development that this day of Pac-Man’s reveal in Smash Bros. 4 is imminent. Even I saw this coming way longer than a year ago and even hoped for Pac-Man to make appearance since it all makes sense.

    And what’s the problem with Pac-Man being a fighter when you people probably have played the Pac-Man World trilogy before, you know, where he can force bounce, roll attack, punch and kick along with power ups from the 3rd game.

    This is actually history in the making. 4 iconic retro gaming legends (Mario, Megaman, Sonic and Pac-Man) do battle in one anticipated game. Who would hate and not want that besides idiots and trolls? Seriously?

    Ya should be excited and appreciated that Namxo is pitching in to help make this game happen and happily include their mascot. I know Ghostly Adventures left a bad taste in Pac-Man fans mouths including myself but there is a retro/World style Pac-Man instead of just that lame ass remake of himself.

    No matter what, I see this as a positive reception for the game and a legendary moment in gaming history to see all of my childhood gaming heroes in one title proving who’s the king of retro gaming. :)

    1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      I 3rd that agreement! >.< One person on Miiverse made over 10 posts complaining about Pac-Man being in. "The fact I can simply see him in the game has ruined Super Smash Bros 4 Wii U/3DS for me!" Ugh! He even called Pac-Man the worst looking video game character ever made even if he is older than Mario & Donkey Kong. *facepalm* I know it was his personal opinion but ugh! No matter. His loss if he passes up this great game all because of just one playable character.

  13. We have 4 icons all in one Smash, what’s more to love? For those hoping for past Smashers, they’ll come, and for those hoping for Ridley- he’s TOO big!!! >”<

    1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      Shrink… him..! Shokio’s “Ridley is too big” video can suck it! >.< Just need to reveal Ridley as playable so I can see more people whine about how the game is ruined & they are going to cancel their preorders & won't be getting the game on Miiverse just like people did with Pac-Man's reveal.

      1. There will always be complainers (there are some who do it for a living) but I’m just trying to think realistically as far s Ridley’s size goes. Bowser was big but shrunk, but Ridley is a flying Dragon-like character who’s move set would be too hard to make and too hard to scale. Wish all you like and correct me if I’m wrong, we’ll see in the end.

  14. Awesome! The Classic Trio! Red for Mario! Blue for Mega Man! and finally Yellow for Pac-Man! and… some modern sonic… >_>

  15. Aside from the far too short Zelda trailer, Mario Party 10 and those cool figures, this was my favorite moment of E3. I wanted Mega Man and Pac-Man, and got both of my wishes. I’m also happy about Mii’s being playable. That was something I wanted in Brawl, but was left disappointed. This is shaping up to be the best Smash Bros. game ever! Just hope there isn’t anything that causes it to suck.

    I hope Nintendo fixes the way that trophies can be viewed. In Melee, you could fully rotate and zoom-in on every trophy. In Brawl, they screwed it up a bit.

  16. Mario, Link, Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. Long-time titans of the gaming industry, and they can all duel it out in this one game. That is awesome.

  18. Why of all people pac man? I seriously am against this one theres just not much to him to make him interesting to me. I get they’re trying to be retro but there are SO many better characters to use.
