Pac-Man joins the roster of combatants for Super Smash Bros.

Wakka, wakka, wakka! During E3 2014, it was revealed that Pac-Man will be joining the fight in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Yes, Pac-Man, Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man are going to be in the same game, beating the snot out of each other. They are joining a whole host of other characters from Nintendo and we can look forward to seeing them when Super Smash Bros. releases on October 3rd for the 3DS, and on Wii U during the 2014 holiday season.

That is the face of a man determined to win by any means necessary

In the game, Pac-Man will look like he does below most of the time, but during specific moves, he will transform into the iconic yellow round shape he had in his arcade debut way back in 1980. He also throws fruit and eats power pellets, BECAUSE HE’S PAC-MAN.

Gaze upon these icons mere moments before carnage ensued

Super Smash Bros. developer Masahiro Sakurai also revealed some new details on the title: gamers can customize each character with 12 unique attacks and three kinds of equipment that have various offensive, defensive and speed-enhancing skills, Mii characters can be used and can be customized with martial arts, shooting or swordplay skills, and the new Skylander-like amiibo figures can be battled against or teamed up with in battles and players can customize their fighting characteristics. The figures learn from each encounter, adopting more sophisticated tactics with each level they gain; Skynet will soon be upon us.

Check out a reveal trailer below and count down the days until Smash is upon us. I can’t wait!

Gobble up Pac-Man CE DX+, new DLC next week

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+, the title update to the 2010 arcade game, chomps onto various platforms on September 25. CE DX+ commemorates Pac’s neon antics coming to Steam as a $ 10 standalone, but it’ll also be available for on PS3, 360, and Windows 8 as a free update to CE DX.

CE DX+ itself provides light enhancments, adding leaderboard tweaks, challenge-based medals, and friend comparisons. As producer Kunito Komori explained to me, comparisons are tied to a specific friend’s scores that are displayed on the CE DX+ dashboard, giving players another mark to top in addition to their own.

The more exciting newness is the ‘All You Can Eat’ DLC that CE DX+ grants access to, comprising four maps, three reskins, and two pieces of background music. The reskins include Rally-X, Dig Dug, and Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures; they’re cute enough, but the real meat is the four maps.
