South Park: The Stick Of Truth Censored In Most Territories

Remember the "Hot Coffee" ordeal? Well, that's precisely what the associate producer of the upcoming South Park game was trying to avoid.

Unfortunately for the European and Austalian regions, The Stick of Truth will be censored in those territories. This according to "walgiz," who took to Reddit to explain the situation (as summarized at Thirteen1).

The following scenes weren't just edited; they were completely removed:

  • A mini-game in which the doctor is performing an abortion on the player.
  • A mini-game in which the player is performing an abortion on the character Randy.
  • Five anal probing scenes involving someone actively being probed. The scenes play out as normal before and after the active probing sequences.

Only the North And South American versions of the game are completely uncensored on every platform. In Europe and Russia, the console iterations are censored, in Germany, only the anal-probing scene is edited, and in Australia, it's censored on all platforms. Obviously, the "Hot Coffee" reference is from the hidden sex scene in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Every country has their own qualifications and reasons, I guess. Australia always seems to get the short end of the stick, though...pun intended.

I wonder how many North & South American parents are going to let their lil' 5 to 9 year olds perform all kinds of abortions & anal probing.

My bet is thousands upon thousands(if my 5 local GameStops are any indication), at least here in the US.

Wasn't interested anyway. Though I really don't understand the allure of scenes such as those indicated above...

I despise South Park. I don't care that this is a turn-based RPG; I simply cannot tolerate the "humour" of the show, so I can guaran-damn-tee that no matter how good Stick of Truth is, it is not for me.

i can understand us getting the screw over, it was refused classification so they had to edit it.
but WTF would you edit the EU version?
it passed classification so whats the point of editing it?
oh well, im grabbing some US PSN cards and downloading it off the US store now.
hopefully it does not take over a week to download like my last ps3 game did!

I'm looking forward to this game. I'm not really into South Park, I have only watch a few episodes and parts of the PS4 versus XOne satire. But I've watched the Team America World Police movie and it was funny, I get the jokes. And this is maybe a satire RPG game about RPG Games or whatever but I'm sure it will be funny for me. Definitely on my list.

I don't understand the reference about Australia in this article.

Australia and EU both received the same level of censorship I believe, so why make it a big deal about the Aussie version?

You guys are putting too much emphasis on the anal probing mini game part , some of you are insecure , it is obvious the game is not all about that .

This just goes to remind me why I quit watching South Park a long time ago. Where's Jack Thompson when you need him?
