South Park: The Stick of Truth goes gold

"Making of" mini-doc stars Trey Parker and Matt Stone

South Park: The Stick of Truth has gone gold after years of delays.

Publisher Ubisoft announced Wednesday that the Obsidian Entertainment RPG based on the animated comedy show is finally on its way to manufacturing, set to hit PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on March 4 in North America, March 6 in Australia, and March 7 in Europe.

The firm released a new behind-the-scenes documentary starring South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to celebrate the occasion. In the video, the pair discusses the process of partnering with Obsidian to ensure the game's look and feel was identical to that of a South Park episode. They don't mention its first publisher going out of business.

The move from now-defunct THQ to Ubisoft prompted one of many delays for the game, which was originally planned to launch in the second half of 2012. Ubisoft announced in October that South Park: The Stick of Truth needed a "major overhaul" after it acquired the game.

A list of achievements for the game began circulating earlier this week, including rewards for joining Cartman's unfortunately named club and letting Kenny die ten times in battle.
