If Pac-Man is in the game you need to be prepared for his look...

Now I love Pac-Man I'm not an older gamer (Well I'm 24, but not old enough for when Pac-Man first came out.), but I played Pac-Man all the time when I was younger (Dad bought some Arcade games for PC that were on floppy disks with Pac-Man and Dig-Dug being on them, and I also played Pac-Man a lot at the local arcade) and I also greatly enjoyed the Pac-Man World games so it gives me some distress to see all the hate he is getting, I know people don't play much in arcades these days (They have been dying out for a long time.) but it's still kind of sad, and Shigeru Miyamoto even said Pac-Man was his favorite video game character of all time, so I'm with him on that.

Anyways my main point is that I think Pac-Man has a fairly good chance of being in (Although I probably wouldn't say so if it weren't for that leak with WFT and Villager from E3) but I've been looking around at the newer Mario Kart games, and found one called "Mario Kart Arcade GP DX" which apparently came out in Japan on July 25th of this year, and I found that Pac-Man was playable as a driver in it (I didn't know about the other Mario Kart game with him in it until I found this.), but to my dismay I found they gave him a strange redesign!

Just feast your eyes on this!

I prefer the older cartoonier look, but I guess I can get used to it, I don't know if everybody already knew this or not (Apparently it's a redesign for a disney cartoon.) but it looks pretty bizarre to me.

I'm not all that appalled by the new look.
From Pac Man World to this new design, Pac Man acquired blue eyes with some more detail and basketball hi-tops.

The hi-tops are really a step up from those shiny boots.

The voice acting is something I'm ignorant about. He seemed fine back in Pac Man World, but I have no idea how he is now, and my gut feeling is that I should be scared.

I don't mind Pac-Man's new look. It's not that big of a difference (about as much as modern Sonic's look is different to classic Sonic's look), and he's had it for at least a few years now, too.
