King today has launched Candy Crush Friends Saga, its latest video game in the popular Candy Crush franchise. Now available to download and play worldwide from the Apple App Store, Google Play and Windows App Store, Candy Crush Friends Saga introduces players to a delicious, new 3D world where they will discover the latest features as they take on tasty new challenges around the Candy Kingdom. Players can also look forward to daily rewards and lots of sweet treats. These range from new characters, custom-designed outfits to dress them in, and boosters.
The game launches with 380 delicious levels, and a range of challenging new game modes including: Free the Octopuses; Find the Animals; Spread the Jam; Dunk the Cookies; and Collect the Hearts.
For the first time in the history of the franchise, the 3D characters play an integral role in the new game, helping players to beat those tricky levels with their unique powers. As players collect more of their favorite candies, the characters’ powers are activated, and they strategically throw boosters onto the game board to help you achieve sweet success. Now with rich backstories, each character has its own quirky personality and a set of tasty dance moves.
“We are very excited to officially launch Candy Crush Friends Saga – our sweetest game yet!” says Sebastian Knutsson, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer at King. “We’re still so surprised and humbled by the success of the Candy Crush franchise. With each iteration, our teams work hard to innovate so that we can offer players a fresh new gaming experience. With Candy Crush Friends Saga, we wanted to immerse players in the game like never before and we feel that bringing the characters and their world to life in 3D will do just that. We hope people enjoy playing the game as much as we did making it!”
To celebrate the game’s release, Candy Crush Friends Saga will be unveiled at an event in New York City. Candy Crush Friends LIVE brings to life the new 3D world, characters and new game modes at the world’s largest 3D projection mapping show in New York City. Tickets are free but limited and available at Eventbrite.
