South Park: The Stick of Truth, An Epic Quest to Become… Cool

Become the new “cool” member of the gang along side Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny in South Park: The Stick of Truth.

“From the perilous battlefields of the fourth-grade playground, a young hero will rise, destined to be South Park’s savior. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes an epic quest to become… cool. Introducing South Park: The Stick of Truth.”

In this new South Park role playing game announced at E3 by Matt Stone and Trey Parker – the creators of the tongue in cheek cartoon comedy – will cast players in the role of a new kid in town faced with the most daunting task that any 4th grader dreads – making friends. Throughout the game players will find themselves doing what kids do at that age like casting imaginary spells and swinging fake swords until these innocent childhood games turn into a battle of good and evil that’ll eventually engulf the whole town of South Park.

First you can create your own character with around a billion character, clothing, and weapon combinations.

Players can then expect to find themselves faced against the usual cooky characters you often see in the TV series such as crabpeople, hippies, and underpants gnomes but don’t fret, along the way players can arm themselves with an array of weapons to defeat the evil doers.

A South Park game wouldn’t be complete without the occasional appearance of our favourite characters! Players will be able to enlist the help of a range of characters from the show to fight and save the quiet town of South Park!

Succeed, and you shall be South Park’s savior, cementing your social status in South Park Elementary. Fail, and you will forever be known… as a loser.

South Park: The Stick of Truth, An Epic Quest to Become… Cool - n3rdabl3If anyone remembers way back to 1998 South Park video game, they’ll already be aware of the crazy game play packed with the usual South Park humour along with er.. unique enemies such as mutant turkeys and cows. This particular game didn’t get a very good wrap, but for those of you who checked out the E3 presentation for South Park: The Stick of Truth, you’ll know that that Matt and Trey have worked hard to make this game seem like an actual episode of South Park, so much so that for the first time ever they had to plan out (as much as possible) as to where everyone’s house is located, “You’ve no idea how many hours it took to get that distinctive crappy South Park look,” said Stone followed by Trey Parker admitting “After fifteen years of doing the show it was the first time that Matt and I were like, ‘where is Kyle’s house?'”.

South Park: The Stick of Truth will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 5th 2013!
