'Super Smash Bros 4' News: Pac-Man Stage 'Pac-Maze' For 3DS Revealed, Lets You Collect Pac-Dots For Bonus Power Pellets [SCREEN]
The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details will keep coming from Nintendo ahead of the staggered release of both versions, even after all the excitement from E3.
The title will be out for 3DS on October 3, as Nintendo announced at the gaming conference, and this holiday season on Wii U. A specific release date for the console version will likely be forthcoming as winter approaches, but Nintendo has plenty of time to make that announcement.
Several new characters and other details were revealed at E3 as expected, including the unveiling of Lady Palutena, Pac-man, Mr. Game & Watch, and the Mii Fighters. Even after these major announcements, though, series director Masahiro Sakurai will continue to give us comparatively smaller details through the official site in the form of a daily picture update.
Today's post takes a break from character costumes that have dominated the last several days, and shows off a new stage for the 3DS version based on Pac-man, which you can see in the image above. Here's Sakurai's accompanying description:
"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."
The stage looks simple, but it's good to see there's a small twist, too. With all the detail Nintendo is putting into these titles, you certainly can't claim the team isn't giving maximum effort to making two great, distinct games. Keep checking back for more Super Smash Bros. news each day, where we'll hopefully see new character reveals or a Wii U release date.
