Many claimed it was inevitable as soon as Nintendo announced that Bandai Namco was helping to make the game, and now all of those people can go all NEENER-NEENER I TOLD YOU SO on their Nintendo-purist friends who scoffed at the very idea. Spoiler alert: I was in the latter group.
I’ve never really been a fan of the 3D Pac-Man model, and only ever enjoyed the classic arcade version of the hungry yellow ball. But like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie. And after seeing Pac-Man’s announcement video (which you can and should absolutely check out below), I can honestly I’m pretty pumped to give him a go. Just tell me we’ll have Ms. Pac-Man as an alternate costume, like the male and female Wii Fit Trainers, and I’ll be even more satisfied. I always did have a soft spot for Ms. Pac-Man.
P.S. Check out the Mr. Game and Watch teaser at the end. That’s TOTALLY a confirmation for him too.
