Fading Into Obscurity

Hello everybody! Welcome once again to Fading into Obscurity! This month I decided to go with an old favorite character that everyone should know. I went with Pac-Man.

Now, how does Pac-Man have anything to do with the Mario series, you may ask? Well, a lesser-known fact about Pac-Man is that he appears in Mario Kart Arcade GP and Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 - two games from the Mario Kart series. In the latter of these two games, he appears with his companions Ms. Pac-Man and Blinky (characters to be described at later dates).

Since Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, which was released in 2007, Pac-Man has appeared in several remakes of his old games as well as a new game in 2010, but none of these games are from the Mario series. As for the Mario series, Pac-Man has simply faded away to obscurity.
