The version of South Park: The Stick of Truth that's due to release in New Zealand tomorrow will be censored, Ubisoft have revealed.

This follows assurances received from the company last year that Kiwi gamers would not receive a copy of the game that was modified from the developer's original vision.

“7 scenes of about 20 seconds each are censored in the EMEA [Europe, the Middle East, and Africa] versions of South Park: The Stick of Truth," a statement sent to explains.

"The decision to cut this content from the game was made by Ubisoft EMEA. Each censored scene is replaced by an image background and a description text selected by Matt & Trey”

The text, can reveal, explains that the scene hidden behind the notice has been censored due to the game being from the "European" region, before going on to explain what is happening out of sight.

In one example, which will likely be familiar to fans of the show, a character is "repeatedly anal-probed" - actions which are detailed in text form, but not shown in any way.

The edited scenes will only be modified for the console versions of the title; copies of the game played on PC will not be affected.
