E3 2012: "South Park: The Stick of Truth" On the Way Next March

The 2013 screens, a release date, and preorder bonuses mark the full announcement for the March 13th 2013 release.

Right at the top of my most-anticipated-for-2013 list is the Obsidian-developed South Park: The Stick of Truth. With Matt and Trey at the helm providing the story and what I understand is a lot of creative control over the final product, this Paper Mario-inspired RPG is shaping up to be something really, really interesting.

The Stick of Truth will be getting Kinect functionality, allowing you to taunt enemies, and the 360 is also getting some exclusive DLC for the game with the "Mysterion Superhero Pack" featuring a superhero costume for your new character, as well as a new attack and weapon, the Dagger of Cthulhu.

The first three DLC episodes from the game will make their home on the 360 first as well, and according to the release will be standalone adventures for The Stick of Truth.

For PC and PS3 owners who preorder the game, there's the "Good Times With Weapons Pack" which will include a weapon, costume, and attack based on the anime-inspired episode of the series.

Check out a batch of screens below:
