During Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference today, Trey Parker and Matt Stone came out as THQ‘s representatives for the game based on the show they created, South Park. Back at E3 of last year, it was just called ‘South Park RPG’ or ‘South Park: The Game’. Its official name is now South Park: The Stick of Truth.
A new trailer was shown. Many of the famous locations and buildings you see in South Park are being decimated by forces referred to as “zombies and hippies” by loudmouthed Eric Cartman, who is one of many South Park characters joined by a newcomer–“you”.
The game looked exactly like an episode of the show; Trey and Matt said they’ve been working hard on the game. Since they’ve never had to think about the town’s geography on the show, often cutting between locations, they had to figure out some elements of the town’s layout specifically for the game.
The current release date is March 5th of 2013. It will be available on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Microsoft Windows. It will also have Kinect support and Microsoft has exclusive Xbox 360 First-DLC.
