For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past year, Smash Bros. Director, Masahiro Sakurai, has been showing off Smash Bros. glory by uploading a screenshot from the upcoming instalments for 3DS and Wii U nearly every day on MiiVerse… that’s a whole lot of visual content for your eyeballs! Today’s pic focuses on Pac-Man’s very big ego!

And this is what Sakurai had to say on the subject…

Pac-Man’s up taunt is known as Namco Roulette! Namco characters from the 1980s will randomly appear.

Everyone loves a good taunt, they’re good for teasing your opponent and feeding your ego. Well it seems that Pac-Man won’t be falling shy from taunting as his up taunt makes Pac-Man show off a character from an old Namco game. Today is yet another double feature as Sakurai posted another photo with another comment!

See? There’s a variety of characters. Huh? One of them looks pretty recent.

Super Smash Bros. is set to be released on the 13th September 2014 in Japan, 3rd October 2014 in Europe and North America, and a day later in Australia for 3DS. The Wii U version is set to be released during Q4 2014.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
