A Closer Look at One Censored Scene in South Park: Stick of Truth

March 3, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Kotaku shows off a couple of screenshots from the European version of South Park: The Stick of Truth. The screenshots - both of which contain spoilers (so if you don't want this specific plot element revealed to you, don't view it) - show off what happens in the uncensored version of the game versus the European version. The censored screen shows a European Union flag and a special message about the plot.

Ubisoft censored the European version of the game for "marketing purposes," according to the company, but it looks like governments and ratings bodies asked that specific scenes be removed because they contained subject matter that was just too much for consumers in Europe to handle. The short scenes that were cut mostly relate to abortions, while in Germany the use of Nazi imagery like the swastika were removed from the game.. The PC version of the game remains uncensored.

Eh, I'd say the ratings board decided they can't handle it, and since the entire populace is exactly like them.... yeah

What most people consider the more grotesque elements of South Park are what help make the show. It's kinda not South Park without it. I'm not sure what the Aus version is going to be like, but from what I can tell the PC version should be fine. I don't want to have to jump through hoops to get the complete version.

PS guys, the link in "You can check out the Kotaku story here" appears to be borked.

I guess that technically means your European Wii U kin are safe from the censored version as well. No hoops to jump through to get the best version. You should feel happy for them... right?

No, because unlike everyone else, European Wii U owners don't have the option to buy or not buy the censored version of the game.
