Last year, Obsidian’s long-awaited South Park RPG launched to great reception from fans and critics alike. South Park: The Stick of Truth did a great job of capturing the look of the show and it was a great game to boot. Now Matt and Trey have joined back up with Ubisoft to bring out a sequel known as ‘South Park: The Fractured But Whole’, the title appears weird at first but there is definitely a joke there.
Ubisoft announced the sequel to The Stick of Truth last night during its own E3 press conference. While The Stick of Truth had a medieval setting, with mages, warriors and rogues, this time around, we will be seeing the South Park characters return in super hero form, with Butters taking on the role of Mr Chaos, the villain.
Superheroes have been explored in the show before with episodes such as ‘The Coon’ and Coon and Friends’. The trailer gives a good idea of what to expect from this new game, although it isn’t super clear whether or not it will be a turn-based RPG like the last game or feature a new battle system.
It isn’t all good news, for reasons unknown Obsidian are not behind this project, instead Ubisoft’s in-house San Francisco studio will be taking over, the same team behind Rocksmith.

KitGuru Says: The trailer had me pretty excited for this game but unfortunately, aside from the theme, we don’t know much about it. I’m also a little worried about quality now that Obsidian is not behind it but then again, there is no exact release date yet so we will just have to wait and see how it turns out.
