It’s happening. South Park: The Stick of Truth looks to keep on track and finally be released on March 4th. A new “Behind the scenes” trailer has been released, showing off a lot more of the game than we have previously seen.
Immediately out the gate we see assurance that The Stick of Truth will be true to the original works of Matt Stone and Trey Park: it is rated M for Mature. Such warnings include Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Mature Humor, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content and Violence. Everything you could expect out of your traditional South Park episode (minus the nudity), which is exactly the point.
In the video, Matt Stone notes that the 7th generation of consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) were strong enough devices to authentically replicate the South Park show as if it were a new episode. The goal is to take a case of the kids playing make believe and extrapolate it to its crazy end goal within the realm of an RPG, including the silly references and immature potty humor that has made the cartoon (in)famous.
The player customization might be the bright spot in the trailer. RPG’s tend to take themselves too seriously, and even those that allow you to shape your character typically have sensible confines. With South Park: The Stick of Truth it appears as though you can be look as dark as an emo kid or as vibrant as a rave kid. It’s up to you how to shape your identity, especially with a silent hero as the playable character.
Save for more development hell, South Park: The Stick of Truth looks to come out on March 4th for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Check out what goes on behind the scenes below.
