'South Park: The Stick of Truth' getting Kinect support, 360-first DLC

Xbox 360 owners get a bunch of bonuses for THQ's upcoming RPG, including pre-order bonuses and Kinect support.

Following the reveal of the South Park: The Stick of Truth release date at Microsoft's E3 press conference, THQ has let us in on a few new details of the upcoming game, including DLC news and pre-order bonus info.

For those rushing out to the store to pre-order, you'll receive the bonus "Good Times With Weapons" pack for South Park: The Stick of Truth. This includes the Bulrog Chicken Attack, Cartman's Kick-ass Sai, and a Samurai Costume for the main character.

If you happen to specifically pre-order the Xbox 360 version of the game, you'll also get the "Mysterion Superhero" pack, which comes with a Superhero Costume, the Mysterion Special Attack, and the Dagger of Cthulhu.

The extras don't end there for Xbox 360 gamers. THQ has confirmed that the first three South Park: The Stick of Truth DLC packs will launch on Xbox first. These DLC packs are described as "standalone adventures featuring their own stories, taking you to places in South Park you've never been before."

The game will also feature Kinect support, right down to the ability to swear at characters from the show and get responses.

South Park: The Stick of Truth launches March 5th, 2013. Look for further news and impressions of the game from Polygon at E3 later this week.
