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.

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.
