South Park: The Stick of Truth has sexual material and nude says ESRB

Finally gets rated by the ESRB

South Park The Stick of Truth 1

Ubisoft’s South Park: The Stick of Truth has received today a Mature rating due to sexual material and nudity according to the ESRB.

In the rating that ESRB published today, South Park: The Stick of Truth has some characters occasionally depicted nude where an extended sequence depicts an out-of-focus couple having sex in the background. For someone who has been watching South Park, this is really not surprising but for those parents thinking of having their kids play this game, please think about it.

In addition to having nudity, ESRB also suggests that several instances in the game have mature humor where players will see characters getting anally probed by alien creatures. Yes, it’s funny and it’s been done a lot of times by Cartman and Stan’s dad in the show. New? not so much.

Here’s an excerpt of ESRB’s rating for South Park: The Stick of Truth:

This is a role-playing adventure game based on the animated South Park TV show. Players assume the role of a new kid in town who embarks on various quests with other boys in the neighborhood.

Players can engage in turn-based combat, selecting attacks from a menu screen. Players use various weapons (swords, baseball bats, hammers), magic spells and melee attacks during fights; blood-splatter effects sometimes occur. Cutscenes occasionally depict “cartoony” characters dismembered or decapitated.

The game includes several instances of mature humor and sexual material: one extended sequence depicts characters getting anally probed by alien creatures; another sequence (in an abortion clinic) depicts doctors using a vacuum to perform procedures on male characters; one level takes place inside the rectum/colon of a character (sex toys, random objects and fecal matter appear in the level)—all sequences are depicted in a cartoony and over-the-top manner.

Characters are occasionally depicted nude (e.g., breasts, buttocks, male genitalia); one extended sequence depicts an out-of-focus couple having sex in the background; as players engage in turn-based battle in the foreground, sexual moaning sounds/dialogue is heard. During the course of the game, drug paraphernalia can be seen strewn around a methamphetamine lab. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” “a*shole,” and “f*ggot” can be heard in the dialogue.

South Park: The Stick of Truth will be available in North America on March 4th for PS3 and XBox 360.
