South Park co-creator Matt Stone has shared some new details on some features.
“In Stick of Truth we got halfway through the game, and we had narratively come up with the big Girls’ Quest halfway through it. [The Girls] were a faction in the fantasy world,” he told Entertainment Weekly (via Kotaku). “And then someone’s like, ‘What if you want to be a girl?’ Narratively, it didn’t work. We’d have to sh**can the whole game. So we just left it the way it was. This time, we obviously wanted to add that.”
For The Fractured But Whole, introducing the ability to play as a girl came with a number of complexities not present in the first game.
“The boys are little boys, because it’s really a story about little boys running around,” Stone said. “So they don’t care about [your character being a girl]? That seems weird. They always seemed to care about it in the show. Are they dumb about it, and they don’t know? So you’re in hiding? Or do they totally care about that, and totally treat you differently? So we ended up doing those things differently for different characters.”
