For far too long Pac-Man has been confined to the realms of an abyss-like maze, haunted by determined foes and given only the briefest of reprieves when delicious fruits give him the power to wreck vengeance on his tormentors. It is time for the beast to be unleashed. And unleashed it shall be in the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the upcoming crossover fighter Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom and Namco Bandai have announced that each has thrown a new fighter into the brawling lot, with Capcom sending forth the blue bomber himself, Mega Man, and Namco the ever-smiling, ever-deadly Pac-Man.
In an odd twist, Mega Man is based off of the terrifying (and terrible) box art of the NES original, while Pac-Man sallies forth on a mutated Mokujin. The bloodthirsty yellow wakka and pot-bellied, thrice-divorced experiment will be cracking skulls when Street Fighter X Tekken launches on March 6.
