When we got the reveal of Pac-Man for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. last month at E3, gamers were ecstatic that the game would be featuring another gaming icon from the past. At the time, we saw a few levels based on the classic character as well as Pac-Land. While Pac-Land will be a Wii U version, it has been revealed that the Pac-Maze stage will be a 3DS exclusive, with some really neat stage mechanics.
Utilizing some of the classic elements of Pac-Man, this stage sounds like it will be a blast.
- “Pic of the day. Pac-Maze is a stage exclusive to the 3DS version, created in the Pac-Man motif. If you eat 100 Pac-Dots, Power Pellets will appear in your color.”
- “If you eat a Power Pellet, the monsters will become vulnerable and you can defeat them just by touching them. An important point is that the monsters will become vulnerable only on your screen, which means that they can still damage your opponents!! This is one of the unique game features only possible in the 3DS version.”
Eating pellets is almost as synonymous with Pac-Man as anything else, so it’s not big surprise that it was included in the game in some way. Now, we must wait and see if the Pac-Land stage on Wii U has anything special in comparison.
