Pac-Man Special Move’s and Final Smash

Neutral Special Move – Fruit Target: A piece of fruit appears in Pac-Man’s hand. Each fruit type has its own properties, strength and range.

Side Special Move – Power Pallet: When you use the move, a trail of pellets flies out horizontally, and Pac-Man follows the trail in his ball form. You can hold the B-button to extend the pellet trail and control the direction of the pellets with the control stick.

For the large part, on paper it seems Meta Knight remains largely unchanged from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. What remains to be seen, is whether Sakurai has balanced the match-up against Meta Knight in Super Smash Bros For Wii U/3DS. I would hate to see Meta Knight be at the top of the tier by himself – without any characters that at least have a decent match-up advantage.

Now knowing Pac-Man’s full move list – Namco’s yellow mascot is looking quite impressive. He appears to have a well balanced array of moves that him make him adequate for both close-quarter combat and long distance camping. These are my thoughts on the information – without solid gameplay videos it would be difficult deduce an accurate analysis on the upcoming metagame.

Super Smash Bros For 3DS is due for release on October 3. While Super Smash Bros. For Wii U still has a tentative holiday launch.
