World Gone Sour (aka Method Man’s Sour Patch Kids Game) Hits Consoles April 10th, 11th
You’ve been able to play Capcom’s (publisher, not developer) puzzle game World Gone Sour on your computer for a little while now, but today they have announced when you’ll be able to play it on your consoles.
According to Capcom, the “puzzle platformer with bite-sized heroes” is coming to the PlayStation Network on April 10th and to Xbox LIVE Arcade on April 11th. If you haven’t played the game, here’s how they describe it:
Based on the popular Sour Then Sweet candy Sour Patch Kids, World Gone Sour takes players on a journey from the perspective of a lost piece of candy finding its way to its ultimate destination – the human stomach. Gamers take on the role of a miniature Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through unique locations such as the sticky floors of a movie theatre and a spooky shack. Players will need to use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to negotiate and overcome larger than life obstacles.
Ok, so it’s probably not a Game of the Year candidate, but it’s not exactly the game that makes World Gone Sour so intriguing. When it was first released last December, the game had a pretty unique spokesman – Method Man. The game came packaged with a new (and kind of profane) track called “World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids).” It’s almost too bizarre to be missed, so check it out below:
Plus, the game itself is narrated by Creed Bratton, better known as Creed from The Office.
The console versions of the game will support two-person local co-op as well as Achievements and Trophies. It will run PS3 owners $4.99 and cost Xbox owners 400 Microsoft points.
