SAN MATEO, Calif. — April 11, 2012 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that World Gone Sour™ is now available for download on PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Based on the popular Sour Then Sweet® candy Sour Patch Kids®, World Gone Sour will put players in the role of a miniature lost piece of candy that sets off on a journey to find its ultimate destination – the human stomach.
Gamers traverse through a stylized human-sized world, guiding the tiny hero through unique locations such as the frozen tundra of the ice cream display, the hot griddle of sizzling hamburgers and popping popcorn, and the un-inviting spooky shed. Players must use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving using collected Sour Patch Kids found along the way to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles.
The console versions allow for two friends to team up for local co-op play and include support for global leaderboards as well as Microsoft Achievements and PlayStation® trophies. World Gone Sour is available now on PlayStation Network for $4.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points. The game can also be downloaded on PC for $4.99.
In addition, the game features 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 includes additional star personality with cheeky narrations by actor Creed Bratton (“The Office”), who provides snack-sized quips and tidbits throughout the game.
The game is rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB. For more information on the World Gone Sour video game, please visit http://www.capcom-unity.com. For more information about Sour Patch Kids, please visit www.sourpatch.com and follow them on Facebook.com/sourpatchkids.
