Capcom has just announced that it will publish World Gone Sour on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC. Based on the popular 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. This should be a nice little changeup for the little ones.
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 or PlayStation trophies. World Gone Sour will be available this winter for $4.99 on PC and this spring on PlayStation Network for $4.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 400 Microsoft Points.
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 (say it aint so Meth, say it aint so). I mean what is the world coming to, is Method Man really rapping about Sour Patch Kids? 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. Now check the full video for Method Man “World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)” below.
