In an interesting turn of events, Nintendo and Namco Bandai have announced that Pac-Man will be joining the roster of Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U and 3DS. Pac-Man will generally maintain his humanoid shape, but when using specific attack moves, he transforms into the round shape he had in his arcade debut in 1980. He also has trademark actions, such as throwing fruit or eating power pellets.

Look for Super Smash Brothers later this year for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
