Pac-Man Championship Edition DX getting Plus update with DLC

Bonkers eat 'em up Pac-Man Championship Edition DX was a wonderful surprise, and so is today's announcement of Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+. Oh, no, it's not a sequel: it's a new patch, released three years after launch to improve the leaderboards and add support for DLC. Can't say I was expecting this announcement at E3.

Oh, no, it's not a sequel: it's a new patch, released three years after launch to improve the leaderboards and add support for DLC. Can't say I was expecting this announcement at E3. Namco Bandai's a bit vague about the whole thing, with the announcement saying simply that it brings "improved leaderboard functionality, in-game achievements and medals, as well as access to additional DLC mazes, music and graphics including classic Dig Dug and Rally-X sprites." The + update is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall. Namco Bandai says it'll hit Steam too but as the game's currently exclusive to Windows 8 on PC, well, I guess it won't be for long.

The Rally-X DLC is pretty muted by PMCEDX standards

      I hope the add multiplayer like in that cocktail version. I can only imagine that'll be the tentpole for this DLC revelation.

      I'd really love to see them put this out on the Vita or 3DS.

      Steam? Nice. Had no idea they did a PC version.
