As the new kid in town, you can choose how you look and dress and your name… although this won’t really count for much, as Cartman dubs you Sir Douchebag. Your first quest will be to make friends around South Park – because as every kid knows, being popular means being cool.
You’ll meet all the characters you know from the cartoon, many of whom are in the middle of a role-playing game, fighting for the Stick of Truth. Cartman is the Wizard King of the humans, alongside his sidekicks Butters and Princess Kenny, while Kyle and Stan lead their sworn enemies the elves. If you need to travel quickly around town, Timmy is always on hand to give you a ride, while Jimmy pops up as a bard to provide songs of enchantment.
As well as the kids, the rest of the South Park cast will appear around the town as part of your quests. Kyle’s mom, Mr Garrison and Mr Mackey form the school PTA, Al Gore sneaks around searching for ManBearPig, while Priest Maxi sends you on a mission to find Jesus… who’s not very good at hide and seek. Some characters can be summoned in battle, like Mr Kim or Mr Slave, whose special move is something that you’ll never have seen in a game before. Ever.
