The South Park pinball machine, released in 1998 by Sega, is based on the popular adult animated TV series of the same name.
This game marked Sega’s final venture into pinball, as production would later be taken over by Stern Pinball, Sega’s successor in the pinball industry.
The level of explicit language in the game is contingent on the machine’s language rating. If set to PG-13, the game employs mild language, with strong expletives bleeped out, in line with the show’s style. When the language rating is set to G, the language is toned down for family-friendly environments. For example, in the “Kill Kenny” Hurry Up mode, if successfully completed, Kyle will say “rats” instead of the stronger phrase. The family mode also alters the match sequence, replacing Terrance & Phillip’s farting with belching. It’s worth noting that the prototype ROM set for the game had all expletives unbleeped.
