A handful of new screenshots from Obsidian Entertainment's South Park: The Stick of Truth, offer another quick look at just how much the upcoming 2D-styled RPG is being crafted to look like the long running animated TV series.
You begin as the new kid in town facing a harrowing challenge: making friends. As you start your quest the children of South Park are embroiled in a city-wide, live-action-role-playing game, casting imaginary spells and swinging fake swords. Over time the simple children’s game escalates into a battle of good and evil that threatens to consume the world.
Arm yourself with weapons of legend to defeat crabpeople, underpants gnomes, hippies and other forces of evil. Discover the lost Stick of Truth and earn your place at the side of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny as their new friend. Succeed, and you shall be South Park’s savior, cementing your social status in South Park Elementary. Fail, and you will forever be known… as a loser.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is due on march 5th 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with the later expected to get exclusivity windows on DLC releases.
