There’s been no shortage of comic book movies over the past decade and there have been some outstanding ones as well as some duds. In the new trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole (ISWYDT) your favorite 4th graders from a sleepy town in Colorado become superheroes and in the process make fun of some comic book movies. During Ubisoft’s E3 2017 keynote presentation, a new trailer for the South Park game was released.
Some of the “superheroes” in the game are Tool Shed, a character who creates gadgets, and Call Girl (ISWYDT), who is actually Wendy, but she has the ability to use cell phones to make calls. The conflict in the game is derived from the division of two superhero groups between The Freedom Pals and Coon and Friends in a sort of Marvel Civil War-like battle.
The game parodies X-Men as Timmy becomes a South Park version of Charles Xavier. Timmy even says something other than “TIMMY” Well, sorta. He telepathically contacts Cartman and tells him that their franchise is failing. A subtle jab at X-Men.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole, which has been delayed, has a current release date of October 17 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. And as an added bonus, those who purchase SP:TFBW will also get South Park: The Stick of Truth.
