South Park: The Stick of Truth, slated for a March 4th release for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, had one trailer reveal during the Super Bowl game yesterday, while two more “rejected” trailers were posted on the game’s official website. While nothing too specific is revealed about the game’s content on the reveal, it gives fans a very nice taste of what is to be expected after the game has been pelted with numerous delays.
Steam users can now pre-order the game to also obtain the “Ultimate Fellowship” pack for free. The pack contains extras such as four exclusive Stick of Truth costumes that carry special abilities. For example, players can earn extra gold by equipping the Rogue Assassin outfit, increase fire damage with the Necromancer Sorcerer outfit, raise defense with the Holy Defender outfit, and deal extra weapon damage with the Ranger Elf outfit.
As a fan of South Park, and particularly as a fan of RPGs, this game is a must buy for me. It will be interesting to see how this game will be able to twist the usual RPG formula into the normal quirky atmosphere that South Park provides, particularly since the last South Park game I played was on the Nintendo 64… hidden from my parents.
