• South Park: The Stick of Truth was revealed earlier this year, however, we were treated to a new trailer last week at E3. From the perilous battlefields of the fourth-grade playground, a young hero will rise, destined to be South Park’s savior. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes an epic quest to become… cool.

    In addition to that, THQ has revealed that there will be exclusive weapons and costumes when you preorder South Park: The Stick of Truth.  The Good Times With Weapons Pack, based on one of the most popular South Park episodes of all time, includes destructive items no fourth-grade martial artist should be without. With the Bulrog Chicken Attack, summon the devastating ninja powers of Bulrog and turn your feeble enemies into chickens! BLAM! “Nya-nya-nya-nya-na naa!  Now you are a chicken!”

    With Cartman’s Kick-Ass Sai, the ultimate weapon of destruction, penetrate even the most evil of villains!  Harness the fiery sting of the Sai to slash and cut your way through South Park!

    Rounding out the Good Times With Weapons Pack is the Samurai Costume. Show off your brute muscle with this bad-ass getup, complete with samurai headgear, a super-sweet cape, and the toughest cardboard armor this side of Takagawa.  Suit up, and prepare to unleash the ultimate pwnage!

    Additionally, THQ announced the Mysterion Superhero Pack that will be an Xbox 360 exclusive.  With your superhero costume, suit-up as the next South Park superhero.  It is the perfect disguise for fighting your mortal enemies and keeping South Park safe.  Also, harness the power of Mysterion with the Mysterion Special Attack.  South Park’s protector unleashes a deadly combination of stealth and firepower; your enemies won’t know what hit them!

    THQ also revealed that the first three downloadable episode packs will be available first on the Xbox 360.  These episodes are standalone adventures featuring their own stories, taking you to places in South Park you’ve never been before.  South Park: The Stick of Truth will also have Kinect functionality.  Taunt your enemies and launch attacks with your voice.  Finally, for the first time in South Park history, you can call Cartman a “fat ass” and he’ll respond.
