The biggest news to hit about Smash Bros. yesterday had to be the inclusion of Pac-Man — and boy did people have a lot to say about it.
For some, Pac-Man wasn't a surprise addition to the roster: Namco is involved in Smash Bros. development, after all. Even so, folks seemed to react strongly to the Pac-Man reveal. Some seem happy. Some seem a bit mad that a slot is "wasted" on a character like Pac-Man. And some are content with cracking jokes about it all.
Here's some of what people around the web are saying about Pac-Man in Smash Bros.

Nintendo's treating these third party characters better than the publishers that bloody own them pic.twitter.com/bvEjA7Tbgd

Nintendo did an amazing job of repairing Pac-Man for Smash Bros. I wish they could fix everyone's 3D characters. pic.twitter.com/4S0pKdZGCY

Not cool, Nintendo. My uncle died of "Pac-Man Fever" in '82.

Someone apparently predicted Pac-Man way back in 2013. Whoa.
Miiverse aside, let's see what the rest of the internet said about Pac-Man, shall we?
One person couldn't help but wonder if Ms Pac Man would be included also:
Perhaps as an alternate skin? In any case, there were definitely Photoshops following the announcements:
"all this pac man hate and i'm just like" (via purified-zone)
And for those of you who are like "why is Pac-Man in this game," JonTron has something to say to you:
At least one person tried doing a real-life Smash Bros. tussle while pretending to be Pac-Man:
One person felt annoyed with folks who screamed CALLED IT:
People were still hyped about it though, don't worry:
And yes, people had stuff to say about Palutena too. Most of it seemed focused on her butt, thanks to how she was revealed:
