Nintendo Switch has seen an increase in third-party support in recent months thanks to the console’s stellar first year sales numbers. Ubisoft has previously published several of their titles on Switch, including South Park: The Fractured But Whole. It seems the latest South Park adventure was a hit on Switch, as Ubisoft has just announced plans to bring the first game in the series to Switch as well.
South Park: The Stick of Truth was well received back in 2014, but Ubisoft initially opted not to bring it to Switch, focusing instead on its sequel. That’s changing soon, as Ubisoft has included Stick of Truth for Switch in its most recent game release schedule. The schedule covers the period from July 1st – September 30th, which means Stick of Truth is coming to Switch sometime in the next month and a half.
If you were hoping to secure a physical copy at retail, we’ve got a little bad news on that front. Unfortunately, the game is listed in Ubisoft’s “Digital Only” section of their release schedule, so it looks like it will be an eShop exclusive. Sorry, collectors.
