Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has revealed in an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, that Shigeru Miyamoto suggested to him that Pac-Man should be included, or at least considered to be a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros Brawl on the Wii. At the time Sakurai could only think of Pac-Man in his pizza shape design and didn’t think it would work as coming up with ideas and characters is the easy part, but implementing them in a good way is a completely different thing altogether.

Sakurai said “During development of Smash Bros. Brawl, Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintendo approached me and asked, ‘Can’t we have Pac-Man as a guest character? At the time, imagining the image of Pac-Man and his incomplete pizza shape, I thought to myself, ‘Hmmm… That’s a little too farfetched.”

“Does the new idea fit with the original game? Most importantly, is it entertaining?”

Fast forward 6 years we now know that of course Pac-Man is going to be a playable fighter in the new Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS, maybe it was Miyamoto’s suggestion back then that ultimately made it happen.
