South Park : The Fractured But Whole is heading to a Nintendo Switch near you on April 24th. Ubisoft and South Park Digital have announced that in addition to the base game the first two pieces of add on content “Danger Deck” and “From Dusk Till Casa Bonita” will also be available at launch either separately or via season pass. The upcoming DLC “Bring the Crunch” will also be available for the Nintendo Switch when it launches in a few months.
South Park : The Fractured But Whole is written and directed by masterminds Trey Parker and Matt Stone and developed by Ubisoft San Francisco. Together they have created a somewhat offensive super hero adventure starring Cartman and crew. After two years in development The Fractured But Whole was released late last year on completing platforms. You can check out our review of the game here.
The sequel to South Park : The Stick of Truth finds crime is on the rise in South Park, with new heroes desperately in need. Cartman seizes the opportunity to save the town and build the best hero franchise ever, Coon and Friends. What follows is a modern game length episode of the long running TV series with the accompanying humour and social commentary as one would expect.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is played in 2.5D and features ten different super hero classes to choose form. Battles are RPG style turn based combat set on a grid allowing strategic movement and a range of attacks depending on the scenario at hand. It also features multiple difficulty levels so players can enjoy it like an interactive episode or take on a challenge.
Ultimately this is just another title that is seeing a belated Switch release. This is great for gamers that own a Nintendo Switch or who like to take their gaming portably. The trend of Nintendo Switch ports of late indicates Nintendo is doing something right and perhaps they have reached critical mass market wise that gives developers reason to port their big titles.This is something previous Nintendo consoles lacked.
