South Park: The Fractured But Whole is finally available on Nintendo Switch, but GameSpot has got an early look at how the game plays in its latest console release. We played through the first 30 minutes of the game. The Switch version is smooth and looks great, and you can check out the gameplay in the video above.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is already out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You play as The New Kid and must help Cartman and friends battle their way to success as an upstart team of superheroes. The game allows you to explore South Park, while its tactical combat system keeps the game exciting, above and beyond the series' iconic crude humor. In addition to the main game, the first two DLCs Danger Deck and From Dusk Till Casa Bonita will also be available for purchase individually or through a season pass.
The DLCs add some fresh story and gameplay, as well--Danger Deck takes players to new locations in South Park to fight against increasingly difficult enemies created by your rival Freedom Pals. From Dusk Till Casa Bonita tasks you with rescuing Mysterion's sister, and takes you to the Casa Bonita restaurant. The expansion also introduces a new class, the Netherborn, and a new character, Henriette the Goth. A third expansion, Bring the Crunch, is due out later this year and will also be available for purchase on Nintendo Switch.
In GameSpot's South Park: The Fractured But Whole review, we called the game a success as an interactive South Park mini-series, but one that will also appeal to newcomers not familiar with the series' tone and humor. "Both the game's combat and explorative strengths effectively bridge the many comical plot developments, which range from mildly amusing to downright hilarious," he said. "It's an accomplishment that this game will wholly entertain devoted fans while delivering a heap of jokes that won't fly over the heads of casual viewers."
