Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai generously provides a new screenshot of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games every weekday, and yesterday’s images revealed a brand new 3DS exclusive stage called Pac-Maze. Inspired by Namco’s classic Pac-Man, players will be able to collect Pac-Dots throughout the stage, and can grab Power Pellets in their own specific color after collecting 100. Elaborating on this mechanic, Sakurai wrote:
If you eat a Power Pellet, the monsters will become vulnerable and you can defeat them just by touching them. An important point is that the monsters will become vulnerable only on your screen, which means that they can still damage your opponents!! This is one of the unique game features only possible in the 3DS version.
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS launches October 3, followed by the Wii U version this holiday season. Stay tuned for more Super Smash Bros. developments as both releases draw closer.
