The real world game will see two teams use their brains to compete on giant interactive game boards with the “latest technology” to conquer Candy Crush and be awarded the the Candy Crown. If you are wondering who will host such a show then you’ll need to wait a little longer as the host is being announced at a later date (probably after they have chosen them). We don’t yet know if the characters from the actual game will appear in the show in anyway, but we do except the theme to be in-line with the mobile title.
Candy Crush the game show is yet to have an official release date, so that is just one more thing you’ll have to come back for once we have it. Keep swiping.
