Pac-Man Championship Edition DX will be out on the XBox Live Arcade today! However, it will be hitting the PSN next Tuesday, November 23.
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX includes two exciting new modes in addition to PAC-MAN Championship Edition’s signature Score Attack mode, where players must collect as many points as possible before time runs out. Time Trials has players clearing out a set number of laps around each maze as fast as they can. Ghost Combo forgoes gobbling Pac-Dots for chomping as many ghosts as possible. Players’ scores are determined on the consecutive number of ghosts PAC-MAN eats while chaining together Power Pellets.
Also new to the series are the multitudes of sleeping ghosts that infest each maze. As PAC-MAN runs past these ghosts, they become angry and chase him until he finds a Power Pellet. If a ghost gets too close, a slowdown effect will begin, giving the player an extra vital second to figure out the best course of action. If the ghost train becomes too much to handle, players can set off a bomb which sends all active ghosts back to the center of each maze.
