The wait is (almost) over, folks! South Park: The Stick of Truth has officially been dated – and you should have it in your hot little hands before Christmas. The game’s been in the works for what feels like forever, but is headed to both PS3 and Xbox 360 on December 12th… sorry, PC gamers, your release date will be shared “at a later time”.
In South Park: The Stick of Truth, you are given weapons of legend, and tasked with defeating forces of evil such as hippies and underpants gnomes. You are the New Kid, and you must find the Stick of Truth to earn your rightful place alongside Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman. If you succeed, you will be the saviour of the tiny mountain town. Fail, and you will be labelled forever… a loser.
Obviously, you need this game. The question is though: Which edition will you get?
The South Park: The Stick of Truth Grand Wizard Edition is “a must-have for any self-respecting South Park fan worth his weight in cheezy poofs”. It’s available exclusively in certain retailers (check with your local store), and contains:
