Trey Parker & Matt Stone Address South Park: The Stick of Truth Censorship

southparkthestickoftruthcensoredimage With South Park: The Stick of Truth releasing this week in North America and Europe (except Germany and Austria), we shouldn’t be hearing any more reports on the game being censored in certain territories, with the EMEA region and Germany/Austria already having been subjected to it. While Ubisoft has handled the bulk of the censorship responses, South Park creator Trey Parker was recently interviewed by the New York Times, where he addressed all the censorship:

It’s just hilarious. The first thing we got back was you can’t have Nazis in Germany. You’ve got these Nazi zombies, and you can’t show Nazis in Germany. And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m pretty sure they did it first.’

Fellow South Park creator Matt Stone didn’t see this as an altogether bad thing, though. “At least now it’s authentically a South Park thing,” Stone said. “If we didn’t get censored, it wouldn’t be South Park.” After watching the censored/uncensored scenes, do you think Ubisoft made the right call for EMEA?
