It's possible we just found out why "South Park: The Fractured but Whole" has been delayed as many times as it has. The game's official Twitter account appears to have been playing a little game with its fans. While a massive blizzard rolls across the East Coast, the Twitter account posted a picture of Cartman, apparently stuck out in the snow.
That picture alone wouldn't be anything other than "South Park" creators having a litlte fun with weather that is rolling in and is expected to cause a little havoc. It's the caption that came along with the "South Park" character.
The 'South Park' Twitter tease
Along with the picture, the caption on Twitter was a simple "Nin-ten-do. I'm coming. I'm coming, Nin-ten-do." The caption seems to be rather interestingly timed, considering the #Nintendo Switch is finally on the market. Is it possible that "The Fractured but Whole" is going to be coming to the new console and is that one of the reasons the game has been delayed as often as it has?
Obviously, this is hardly a confirmation that "South Park: The Fractured but Whole" is going to be a Switch game. At the same time, it seems hard to believe the tweet could have meant anything else.
'The Fractured but Whole' is finally coming for us all
This "South Park" game is actually the second in what is now a series for consoles. Thanks to the first endeavor being as popular as it has been, there was quite a bit of excitement when the title was first announced way back in 2015. The waiting was originally expected to be over for Xbox One, PS4 and PC users during the Holiday season of 2016. Then the game was pushed back and people began to wonder when it would see the light of day.
"South Park: The Fractured but Whole" is expected to finally launch, likely during the Holiday season of 2017. Now that it won't have to release on most consoles on one day, and the Switch on another, it seems more likely the tweet was teasing something big. While Nintendo's launch lineup hasn't been great, there are some good third-party games coming to the platform such as "Hotline: Miami" and "Yoku's Island Express"
