South Park: The Stick of Truth will release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 5, 2013, THQ has announced.

Pitched as an "epic quest to become cool", The Stick of Truth rejoins the South Park kids as they venture into South Park on an RPG adventure inspired by the adult cartoon.

And if you've ever wondered how Cartman would respond to you calling him names, pick up the Xbox 360 version and you'll find out; THQ announced tonight that the Xbox 360 version will also be compatible with Kinect.

"For the first time in South Park history, you can call Cartman a "fat ass," and he'll respond," says the publisher.

In addition, THQ revealed that the first three downloadable episode packs for The Stick of Truth will be available first on Xbox 360.

Each episode is said to be a "standalone adventure" featuring their own stories and taking players to brand new, never before seen areas of South Park.
