Those beloved, foul-mouthed kids from South Park are taking another foray into the gaming space with South Park: The Stick of Truth, currently in development by Obsidian Entertainment.
The game is being published by THQ, which has been having serious money issues lately. However, by building on existing franchises such as Saint's Row and Red Faction -- and now South Park -- the company can hopefully get back to publishing mature, well-crafted gaming experiences. THQ has announced that South Park: The Stick of Truth will include some neat preorder bonuses for those looking to add a bit more to their South Park experience.
The preorder bonuses include the Good Times With Weapons pack, which contains a samurai costume for the player character, as well as Cartman's Kick Ass Sai weapon and special ability. As an added bonus, players will also receive the Mysterion Superhero Pack. Mysterion, for those unfamiliar with the series, is Kenny's super alter-ego. The Dagger of Cthulu weapon, Superhero costume, and Mysterion Special Attack will be available to players in this pack.
South Park: The Stick of Truth will be released next March 5. It is being overseen by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Obsidian Entertainment was the company behind Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol. Check out THQ's official site for more info.
