Sour Patch Kids video game coming to PSN in 2012


Do you like Sour Patch Kids? If you’re like me, you do. And if you’re even more like me, you’ve tried to stick a Sour Patch candy into your PS3’s disk drive in hopes of it becoming something you can enjoy in more ways than one. Like a video game.

By using some sort of mind-reading sorcery, GamesRadar reports that Capcom is apparently developing a PSN title called “World Gone Sour”, based off of the popular Sour Patch Kids candy brand. Now, I know you’re excited, and it gets even better. It will be narrated by The Office co-star Creed Bratton, and musician Method Man will be lending his talents for the title track of the game.

The premise of World Gone Sour involves the player as a lost Sour Patch Kid adventuring through enemy-filled locales that would be fitting for a place to find candy in real life, like a concession stand, in order to find “candy nirvana” . It is also reported to have trophy support, online leaderboards and local co-op.

A PC version will be released during the winter, and a downloadable console release is planed for Spring 2012. The reported retail price will be $4.99.
