Gobble up Pac-Man CE DX+, new DLC next week

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+, the title update to the 2010 arcade game, chomps onto various platforms on September 25. CE DX+ commemorates Pac’s neon antics coming to Steam as a $ 10 standalone, but it’ll also be available for on PS3, 360, and Windows 8 as a free update to CE DX.

CE DX+ itself provides light enhancments, adding leaderboard tweaks, challenge-based medals, and friend comparisons. As producer Kunito Komori explained to me, comparisons are tied to a specific friend’s scores that are displayed on the CE DX+ dashboard, giving players another mark to top in addition to their own.

The more exciting newness is the ‘All You Can Eat’ DLC that CE DX+ grants access to, comprising four maps, three reskins, and two pieces of background music. The reskins include Rally-X, Dig Dug, and Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures; they’re cute enough, but the real meat is the four maps.

Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ munches on Steam on Sept. 25

PacMan Championship Edition DX coming to Steam
2010′s re-imagining of the Pac-Man series is adding to its train-of-a-name on September 25 when it launches on Steam for $ 10 as Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+.

DX+ will add four courses, two songs and a trio of skin packs that mimic sights and sounds from Dig Dug, Rally-X and the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure cartoon series. The game’s Steam page lists this content as a pre-order bonus, which is curious given that Namco Bandai announced the same features in June as a free update to console versions.

We enjoyed the original release’s shake-up of the series’ traditional gameplay.

DX+, the expanded version of Pac-Man Championship Edition is taking pre-orders now on Steam with a September release date.

The game will be available on PC on September 25. Presumably, the console versions of the game will have a similar release date. The last we heard about Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ was at E3. In June Namco Bandai said the game will be available in late Summer.

We've reached out to Namco Bandai to see if it is ready to share a release date for the console versions of the game.

New Pac-Man And The Ghostly Adventures Suits And Release Dates Revealed

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, Pac-Man's return to 3D platforming, is coming to consoles in October, with the 3DS version following closely behind.

When we saw the game at E3, we were only able to check out one of Pac-Man's suits. The chameleon suit granted Pac-Man a long tongue which helps him combat ghost enemies and swing on poles. In the latest batch of screens for the game we can see a new flame suit, an ice suit, and what appears to be a magnet suit of some kind.

The game will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC (by way of Steam) on October 29. The 3DS version of the game will be available on November 26. You can check out a collection of new screens for the game in the gallery below. For more on the game, check out our hands-on time with the game at E3.
