Avi Arad, who has worked on Marvel movie properties like Spider-Man, Blade and X-Men, might be taking a similar role for one of gaming’s most enduring icons. The Namco Bandai adviser will be at E3 to make an announcement about the worldwide premiere of his newest Pac-Man project.

While a movie announcement isn’t official, Arad’s involvement with television and movie properties in the past (and current work in bringing game properties Uncharted and inFamous to the big screen) suggests something more than a gaming announcement. With Pac-Man celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, new versions of the game on all major platforms are likely and E3 would be the right time to announce what other plans Namco Bandai has for their company mascot.
