Pac-Man and Mr. Game & Watch are joining Super Smash Bros!!

Nintendo has announced that Pac-man, the Bandai-Namco mascot, will be joining the battle of Super Smash Bros Wii U & 3DS.  Pac-man will swap between two and 3D forms mid-fight in Smash, letting him pull off trademark Pac-man moves like EATING EVERYTHING.  A Pac-Man stage was revealed for the 3DS version, which was based around the original arcade version of Pac-Man.  The trailer shows just how far we’ve come since the early 90s console war, with Mario, Mega Man, Sonic, and Pac-man all now appearing in the same game.

Joining Pac-man is a returning Mr. Game & Watch.  Previously playable in Melee, Mr. Game & Watch was skipped for Brawl.  No real gameplay of Game & Watch was shown, he was merely showcased in a joke showing that he and Pac-Man were the predecessors to Mario and Donkey Kong.  Donkey Kong released to arcades in 1981, while Pac-man and Mr. Game & Watch were launched in 1980.  No release date was yet given for the Wii U version, but the 3DS version will launch on October 3rd.
