The Deleted Content Of South Park: The Stick Of Truth
When we visited Obsidian for our January 2012 cover story, the development of the game was fairly early on. In fact, it didn't even have its subtitle yet (we were told to refer to it as South park: The Video Game for our story). As such, we were shown a good amount of material that didn't make its way into the full release that came out earlier this month. One such example is the fight against vampire kids that's shown above in our header image. We watched Obsidian developers fight through a cemetery and into a church, taking down the mopey faction in the process. Read on to see more examples of cut content.
The Underpants Gnomes/Crab People Kingdom
While there is a brief Underpants Gnomes-related section of The Stick of Truth, we barely saw any references to the Crab People outside of one that lived in the sewers. Original plans were clearly more extensive, as evidenced by the demilitarized zone above. It looks like plans for a cross-species war never came to be.
We fought plenty of homeless people, gingers, and every kind of Nazi in The Stick of Truth, but we never got to beat down these smelly goobers.
Mr. Hankey and his troubled family originally resided in the cheery area seen above. In The Stick of Truth, his living quarters were downgraded to a small house in the sewers.
Ginger Kid/Polly Prissypants Mission
We were shown one mission that started with Cartman lamenting the loss of his doll Polly Prissypants. He's convinced that the ginger kids stole her, and sends the new kid on a quest to retrieve her. After following a trail of doll hair, the player is taken into the woods where they encounter numerous red-headed children.
Apparently, this big dragon monster thing was gonna be a boss fight at one point.
