South Park: The Stick of Truth heading to the Switch

by Daniel VuckovicJuly 18, 2018

South Park: The Stick of Truth is coming to the Switch later this year. Ubisoft released  South Park: The Fractured But Whole earlier this year on Switch and now it’s following up – with the previous game.

A little odd to release them the wrong way around, but we’ll take it. Ubisoft said in a financial report (PDF link) today that the game should be out by September.

What's your reaction?
Oh wow!

    I wonder if it’ll have the same “censoring” that the PC version had for AU customers…

    For those that don’t know, it involved a still picture of a crying Koala with a didgeridoo playing in the background with a little apology censorship text lightly explaining what was happening in those scenes…

    Can’t think it’ll be any different on the Switch.

      Legally, it will have to be censored. After it got banned the first time, a censored version was also banned. A version with additional cuts was finally given an R18+ classification. The Fractured But Whole got past the censors without any issues. The problem is that the classification guidelines have become overly strict post 2013 when they finally introduced the R18+ classification. A lot of games that would previously have been rated MA15+, M, or in a few troubling cases, even PG, are now being slapped with R18+ ratings (if not being banned outright) due to the classification board’s extremely vague interpretation of “sexual violence”, hence the abundance of games that are rated R18+ for “References to sexual violence” (I can guarantee that not a single one of these games would have received a classification higher than MA15+ prior to the introduction of the R18+ classification in 2013). Movies and TV shows that contain similar (often worse) content remain unaffected. I feel this trivialises what the classifications *should* represent as well as trivialising what constitutes “sexual violence”.

      Likewise, I find it ridiculous that a number of games with “sexualised” content are being rated R18+ despite the complete lack of nudity in such games. In fact, the R18+ rating *permits* nudity with virtually no restrictions.
