Tozai Games announced today that Spelunker HD will be receiving a software update on August 28th that includes a new area, and seven additional downloadable Championship Mode DLC packs to follow for both North America and Europe.
The patch and each DLC pack will include a new area with 10 stages, totaling up to 80 additional levels to explore and conquer, as well as increased lives and extra content trophies. The update for Spelunker HD will take place in both Europe and North America on August 28, 2012.
Additionally, PlayStation Plus members will be able to purchase both Spelunker HD, as well as the new Championship Mode DLC packs for 50% off for two weeks starting from August 28th 2012.
The update improves screen views in Spelunker HD's exciting online multiplayer mode, and EX1, the first expansion pack will be included for free as part of the patch. Packs EX2 through EX8 will be available soon after for $1.99/E1.99 each. To round out the bevy of Spelunker goodness, two more packs are expected next month.
"Fans in Japan salivated over each Championship Expansion release, but we're excited to now be offering them all at once to both North America and Europe," says Scott Tsumura, Tozai's co-founder. "Spelunker addicts beware, because the new stages really turn up the heat! To wit, Championship mode provides fifty lives at game start as opposed to only five in the original mode."
