Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ Out Next Month

One of the lesser talked about announcements at this year’s E3 was the new Pac-Man title called Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+. The release will add new content to Pac-Man CE DX in the form of DLC and will be available very soon indeed. A patch is coming to console versions of the game to add “improved leaderboard functionality, in-game achievements, and medals." With this will also be the option of new DLC and this is where things get interesting. Namco Bandai have stated what’s new in the DLC, so here is what you will be getting:

New Courses:

BIG EATER COURSE: A new challenge with more ghosts on screen that you can eat and in which it will be vital to manage your way out while still powered-up.

MOUNTAIN COURSE: A technical mountain-like course in which ghosts might take shortcuts to catch up with you.

CHAMPIONSHIP III & HIGHWAY II COURSES: Highly popular Highway and Championship II maps redesigned for an increased challenge in which using bombs strategically will be crucial to beat top scores.

New Skins:

RALLY-X SET: PAC-MAN’s automotive makeover! New skins, characters and BGM that will turn all your courses into Rally-X races.

DIG DUG SET: Dig Dug tries it Pac-man style! New skins, characters and BGM that will turn all your courses into Dig Dug adventures.

PAC IS BACK SET: Transport all your courses into the world of "PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures!"

New BGM:

PAC STEPS BGM: Enjoy new organic-sounding music centered on real instruments or electronic music built around distorted synth tracks.

RE-ENTRANCE BGM: PAC-MAN CE DX main menu "ENTRANCE" remixed and extended version now playable during the races.

All this content will be available in the ‘All You Can Eat’ pack, which is free for people that pre-order the PC version of the game. The game is coming sometime in September and we should get a more final release date, as well as prices for the DLC for players you already have the console versions very soon.
