Speculation has been rampant over whether South Park: The Fractured But Whole would ever make its way to the Nintendo Switch. It’s now official: the latest South Park video game is making its way to the Nintendo Switch. The game will release on April 24th.
Revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct, the successful South Park RPG sequel The Fractured But Whole will be available on the console starting on April 24th. According to the stream, all DLC currently available for the game on other systems can be purchased when it launches. Players will be able to pick up the Danger Deck DLC pack, From Dusk till Casa Bonita DLC pack at launch, as well as the major story expansion Bring the Crunch DLC later this year when it launches for all platforms. Players can also choose to purchase the South Park season pass and lock in for all of the DLC released for the game.
At this time, it’s unclear if South Park: The Fractured But Whole will see its prequel release for the system, too. Although it’s since been overshadowed by its sequel, The Stick of Truth released to generally positive reviews. Since many players were able to pick up a copy of South Park: The Stick of Truth for free with their purchase of the second game, it’s possible that the game may also release for the Switch. However, the Nintendo Direct had nothing to offer regarding the first game, nor any information on whether South Park will have amiibo support.
With this and many more announcements made during the Nintendo Direct, there should be plenty to keep the millions of gamers who have picked up the Nintendo system busy in the year to come.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will release on April 24th for the Nintendo Switch. It’s also available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One now.
