Ubisoft and South Park Digital Studios have announced that South Park The Fractured But Whole is now available on Nintendo Switch systems. The game is rated PEGI 18, so Switch's parental controls may be called to action with the game.

As The Fractured But Whole's title suggests, the game is "outrageously offensive" adventure in South Park protagonists' hero personas. It was not as well received as The Stick of Truth but the sales were good enough to warrant a Switch port. 

One of the reasons why players didn't enjoy The Fractured But Whole after The Stick of Truth is due to the former's emphasis on DLC. Speaking of which, Danger Deck and From Dusk Till Casa Bonita DLC packs will be available for the game from get go. Players will be able to purchase them separately or get them both with the season pass, which will also include the upcoming Bring the Crunch DLC, once it gets released during summer 2018.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole's story will revolve around Eric Cartman's attempts to utilise the growing crime wave in South Park by saving the town along with his friends as they adopt their superhero personas. Of course, Cartman wouldn't be Cartman if he did it out of the goodness of his heart, and this crime fighting is really an attempt to create "the best superhero franchise ever" which would be called Coon and Friends.

Danger Deck begins when players get teleported to "never-before-seen" locations within South Park where they fight increasingly difficult waves of enemies in Freedom Pals' training facility. This is basically a fancy way to introduce a horde mode, and the DLC was not met with positive reviews.



In the other DLC, From Dusk Till Casa Bonita, players are tasked with saving Mysterion's sister who has fallen in with Vamp Kids. They have also set their sights on Cartman's favourite restaurant, Casa Bonita. This DLC brings a new class, called Netherborn, that offers four new powers, as well as a new buddy named Henrietta the Goth.
