If you're wondering why this taste of the planned Pac-Man television show looks a little blurry, it's because you're supposed to be experiencing it in dazzling 3D, an effect hard to capture in internet video.

Namco Bandai and ex-Marvel Studios producer Avi Arad unveiled their vision for the new Pac-Man TV series at an E3 event last week, reportedly before they'd shown it to studios. This is Pac-Man as a high school teenager, an overeater who must protect the three-dimensional world from ghosts.

Given the short list of networks that broadcast content in 3D and the fact that this four-minute-long appears to be the extent of the project thus far, don't think we'll be seeing kid Pac-Man on Saturday morning cartoons for a while (if ever). Not sure if that's a bad thing...
