Super Smash Bros. 4 adds Miis, Pac-Man, Mr. Game & Watch
Picture it. The playground. You’re 10 years old. Someone has just said that Nintendo is working on a game that lets Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, and Pac-Man fight it out for video game glory. Well, the dream has become reality as Nintendo has confirmed that Pac-Man will be included in the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. 4. Mr. Game & Watch, a stick figure-like character that served as the mascot for Nintendo’s early handhelds, has also been confirmed to be included in the game.
But wait, there’s more. GameSpot is reporting that Nintendo will also include Miis in the final fighting roster:
You can assign your Mii to one of three different fighting styles: brawlers rely on their fists and fight empty-handed, swordfighters specialize in weaponry, while gunners focus on projectile attacks. Each style has 12 different special moves to choose from, and players will be able to select four different abilities for their fighter. This gives Super Smash Bros. a light customization feel when it comes to playing with a Mii. I say light, however, because you won’t be able to mix and match abilities from different styles. So if you wanted to make your Mii into a gun-wielding martial arts expert, for example, you’re out of luck when it comes to Super Smash Bros.
It’s like Christmas! And that’s probably when we’ll finally get the chance to play Super Smash Bros. 4 on the Wii U as Nintendo is still saying that it will be released during the “holiday season.” The 3DS version of the game will be available on October 3.
