Yes it’s true. Capcom have revealed that Namco’s mascot Pac-Man and it’s own (ex) mascot Megaman will be making an appearance in Street Fighter X Tekken. A recent trailer was released, revealing the two classic retro characters in all their 3D glory. Megaman is particularly brilliant, as Capcom has cheekily modelled him on the naff old box art from the original U.S. NES games that were released in the Eighties.
Pac-Man also looks pretty cool as well, although he appears to do most of his fighting in a large contraption. We’re not sure why it’s needed (he has massive fists in his 3D incarnation, but it’s a nice touch all the same, and is sure to put him on a better pegging with the other characters that have so far been announced. Interestingly, both Pac-Man and Megaman will be exclusive to the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game. Infamous’ Cole McGrath and Sony mascots Toro and Kuro will also be appearing.
It’s unclear if the Xbox 360 will be getting its own exclusive characters, or if Pac-Man and Megaman will be appearing on the system at a later date. What we do know however, is that we know have another four reasons for needing to own this game.
