  • A stage based on the first Round of Pac-Land is available in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Also, the jumping sound of Pac-Man in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U is the same jumping sound of Pac-Man in Pac-Land. The hydrant that spits out water in high rounds of Pac-Land is also seen too.
