South Park: The Stick of Truth is imminent now. In just two Earth weeks, we’ll be knee-deep in dick jokes, assorted racial slurs and general depravity. Because, y’know, it’s South Park, and they can say whatever the hell they want.
Here’s a great way to prepare for March 4: a heaping helping of new gameplay footage. Behold the game’s opening, which takes us from New Kid’s family moving into South Park to his initiation with Cartman the wizard king. We accelerate from ‘use the analog stick to move around’ to pitched battles with Jew Elves at an alarming rate.
The Stick of Truth is an odd case. On the one hand, it’s showing off some reasonable RPG chops; what with its weapon customization and surprisingly in-depth battle system and all. On the other, one of its achievements/trophies is awarded for ‘shitting your pants during a boss battle,’ and whatever you name your character, Cartman insists that you entered Douchebag.
In short, it’s shaping up to be the… game-iest South Park game yet, and we can’t wait to get our Stick of Truth on.
