Step aside, Dishonored – stop time with your farts in South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park Fractured But Whole Story

Meet the superhero cast of South Park: The Fractured But Whole in the latest story trailer for the 2017-bound RPG. There’s Cartman’s superhero persona, “The Coon”, Kenny, rather fittingly, masquerades as Mysterion, Kyle is Human Kite – literally a boy with a kite attached to his back, which allows him to waft gently in the breeze – and Stan, thanks to his dad’s DIY kit, is Toolshed. Then there’s you, The New Kid, who can stop time by farting.

Just like in their last video game outing, the kids are taking their role-playing game town-wide, this time after Cartman discovers a global terrorist theory… on a missing cat poster he found in the sleepy Colorado town. The new trailer proffers little in the way of juicy new gameplay details, but it does confirm that the crass humour of the first game will definitely be making a comeback.

The trailer does also suggest that we’ll have special time-stopping fart abilities, though it’s equally likely that this is just the game riffing on the recent superhero movie trend. Just for the record: I hope it is a character ability.
