With just one week away before the release South Park: The Stick of Truth, Ubisoft has confirmed that the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the title have been censored in Europe. In a note sent along with review copies, Ubisoft states that seven scenes of about 20 seconds each have been changed.
According to Ubisoft, the censored scenes include: a mini-game in which a doctor is performing an abortion on the player, a mini-game in which the player performs an abortion on Randy, and five anal probing scenes involving someone being actively probed. "The scenes play out as normal before and after the active probing sequences. Each censored scene is replaced by an image background and a description text selected by [South Park creators] Matt and Trey," said Ubisoft.
In addition, a Ubisoft representive has also revealed that all Nazi symbols, which appears quite often in the game, have been removed from the german version of game. Despite all the censorship, the PC version of the title is unaffected by all these changes.
South Park: The Stick of Truth will be available for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, on the 4th of March in North America, and on the 7th of March in Europe.
