Stacking to get The Lost Hobo King
Double Fine’s escapade gets “The Lost Hobo King” add-on.
THQ today announced that The Lost Hobo King, an add-on to the critically acclaimed downloadable title Stacking, is now available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system. The Lost Hobo King is available for the suggested downloadable price of 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE and $4.99 on PlayStation Network.
In The Lost Hobo King, Charlie travels to the kingdom of Camelfoot to help his hobo friend Levi with an important family matter. Levi’s uncle Rufus, heir to the throne, may only take his rightful place if the lost crown can be found. To recover the fragmented crown, Charlie must use his unique talents to overcome several tests of valor left by the ancient hobo mystics. It is only then that the ancient crown can be re-forged, Rufus crowned, and the fractured hobo people united under one sardine can.
“The Lost Hobo King includes the same charisma as Stacking with an added layer of hilarity,” said Martin Good, THQ’s Executive Vice President of Kids, Family and Casual Games.
Project Lead, Lee Petty added: “With the Lost Hobo King, we’ve expanded the world of Stacking by developing the mythos and identity of the ancient Hobo people. Charlie’s bravery and cleverness will help bring unity to a fractured people because, after all, helping is the Hobo way.”
