First they are sour, then they are sweet. Capcom hopes that a downloadable game staring the little candy dudes ends up more like the latter. World Gone Sour is a new game that will take place in a human sized world, but from the perspective of the little sugary treats.
Game Informer is reporting that Capcom has the game in development.
“Sour Patch is the #1 all sour candy brand in the U.S. but there is so much more to these iconic characters than just their sour exteriors and sweet interiors,” says Sebastian Genesio, marketing director for Sour Patch. “Bringing our ‘lost kids’ to life in video game form will add a new dimension to these lovable snacks. We feel this video game will resonate strongly with our core audience of teens and young adults.”
“Sour Patch has brought its brand to life in a unique experience that only video games can deliver,” said Christian Svensson, senior vice president, planning & strategy, Capcom Entertainment, Inc. “Whether you’re a fan of Sour Patch Kids or fun and engaging gameplay, World Gone Sour has something for all gamers to enjoy.”
It is also being reported that the game will feature the new Method Man song, World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids) and narration by Creed Bratton, who, conveniently, plays Creed on The Office. Sounds like this game will have everything you could possibly want in a game based on candy.
World Gone Sour will be available this winter for 400 Microsoft Points or $4.99 on the PSN or PC.
