South Park: The Fractured but Whole!

South Park The Fractured But Whole

Credit Ubisoft

Ubisoft has been supporting the Switch a lot since its release and has not wavered once. Truth be told, we were expecting to see a release of South Park: The Stick of Truth first, but we are still very happy to see South Park: The Fractured but Whole make its way to the Switch.

South Park: The Fractured but Whole is a turn-based strategy RPG that is a parody of all of the superhero movies that have been releasing lately. There are a tonne of games being released this week, but South Park: The Fractured but Whole is the first one that we would recommend.
