In a slightly unusual turn of events, Ubisoft has announced South Park: The Stick of Truth will be coming to the Switch later this year. The port was announced in Ubisoft’s first-quarter financial report, which suggests the game will only be released in digital form.
The move is unorthodox because the sequel to The Stick of Truth, The Fractured But Whole, has already been ported to the console. Ubisoft may have released the sequel before the original in the hope it would achieve higher sales. The Fractured But Whole clearly sold well enough for Ubisoft to feel confident the first game would also perform on the platform. In any case, the Switch port for The Stick of Truth should arrive in Ubisoft’s second quarter between July and September.
The DLC add-on for The Fractured But Whole, called ‘Bring the Crunch’, will also be coming to Switch, PC, Xbox One and PS4 on the 31st of July.
