Soulcalibur V's Next Costume Offerings Includes A Pac-Man Cameo (Sort Of)

Pac-Man is having a hell of a career second act in fighting games. Of course, he is one of the free characters in Street Fighter X Tekken on the PlayStation 3. Now it looks like he'll be included — as some kind of bizarre head-thing — in Soulcalibur V's next batch of monthly costume DLC. See for yourself at 1:02 in this video.

Four years ago, Katsutoshi Sasaki, the director of Soulcalibur IV, said he really wanted to see Pac-Man cameo in that game, but the problem was that Pac didn't have a weapon. I guess making him a costume option instead of a fighter solves that problem, if in a strange way.

The game gets a title update on Wednesday and then the new costume options arrive on April 3.


    Pac-Man doesn't have a weapon, yet he's running around in a wooden mech in Tekken Versus Streetfighter pre-Locked Character Content edition?
