Super Smash Bros. fans who have been hoping for the ultimate gobbling showdown between Pac and Nintendo’s lovable pink over-eater, Kirby, will finally have that somewhat strange and very specific wish come true.

This evening at the giant Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow, Nintendo has confirmed that arcade legend Pac-Man will be a playable character in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS brawler, Super Smash Bros.

The developer also confirmed the return of Mr. Game & Watch, the unofficial mascot of its franchise of bite-sized, arcade-style games.

The ever-hungry sphere … thing and the angry silhouette guy join the game’s other new addition, Kid Icarus’s Palutena, whom the developer revealed at its digital event earlier today.
