Capcom will publish World Gone Sour on the Xbox LIVE Arcade later this year, a game based on the popular US Sour Then Sweet Candy Sour Patch Kids. The game will take players on a journey from the perspective of a lost piece of candy finding its way to its ultimate destination – the human stomach.
Gamers will take on the miniature role of a lost Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through the sticky floors of a movie theater, across the counter of a concession stand, and other unique and oversized environments. Joining forces with fellow lost Sour Patch Kids, players will use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles. Along the way, they will battle unusual candy enemies, escape from deranged humans, and face-off against bizarre creatures including one very angry wad of sticky chewing gum.
Players will be able to team up with one friend for local co-op play. The console version will include support for global leaderboards, as well as Microsoft Achievements. In addition, the game will feature the recently released “World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)” track from Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist Method Man. The journey of the Sour Patch Kids will include additional star personality with cheeky narrations by actor Creed Bratton (“The Office”), who will provide snack-sized quips and tidbits throughout the game.
World Gone Sour will be released this winter for 400 MS Points.
