HomeNewsSakurai Considered Cutting Pac-Man From Smash if Forced to Use His Ghostly Adventures Design Jelani Thompson June 27, 2015 News It was recently uncovered that Masahiro Sakurai considered cutting Pac-Man from the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS roster if he was forced to use his design from the cartoon Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Here’s what he said. Pac-Man’s design was updated in a 2013 CGI cartoon titled, “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures.” This new design has been used in a variety of products. But in the end I felt that his old-school design was better, and used that in the design plan. If that was rejected, I thought about dropping Pac-Man altogether. Sakurai also talked about the bonds between Nintendo and Namco, and what other video game characters were considered for the roster. There were none [bonds]. We basically thought of all the characters at the start of development. We decided on characters we knew we could make. However, there were a few in consideration, such as Heihachi from “Tekken.” To the Pac-Man mains out there, how does it feel knowing that your character was almost removed from the game?
