Starting today, amateur burger chefs can pick up the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and WiiWare versions of the remade arcade classic for $4.99. Alas, even Peter Pepper himself is not immune from the harsh reality of expired licensing agreements, which MonkeyPaw cites as the culprit behind the game's delisting at the end of the month.
Speculation from an anonymous source suggests that Peter Pepper was forced to close up shop by area health inspectors, who objected to his unsanitary burger-stomping ways. Pepper declined to comment when questioned regarding his cooking methods, claiming that the delisting is part of a conspiracy devised by giant sausages and human-sized eggs.

San Jose, CA - April 15, 2014 - MonkeyPaw Games, Inc. has announced that BurgerTime World Tour will now sell for a delicious $4.99 until April 30, 2014 when it will be removed from digital store fronts due to expiring licensing agreements.
After April 30, 2014, players who have purchased the game should still be able to access their download.
"Removing a game is never something we like to do, but it is part of the nature of working with retro game franchises," said Ryan Olsen, PR Manager for MonkeyPaw Games. "For those that have yet to snack on the game, we are offering it at a tasty price before BurgerTime World Tour is taken off the menu."
BurgerTime World Tour introduced fresh and meaty additions to the re-imagined franchise. BurgerTime featured platforming elements, boss characters and local plus online multiplayer to spice up the classic gaming favorite.
