** A Game Informer magazine cover showed an [[http://media1.gameinformer.com/imagefeed/featured/thq/southpark/cov_225_l.jpg alternate, unused costume design for Kenny as a princess]]. Instead of wearing the purple Zelda-esque dress, he was to wear an orange dress and would not wear his parka underneath, allowing his face to be exposed. Due to the exposure of his face, he was also shown to be wearing makeup. This was most likely scrapped because it made him unrecognizable and too much like an actual female, due to the show's art style.
** The same cover shows other characters and elements for the game that were scrapped, such as Satan.
** The Woodland Critters and Crab People were to be battle bosses and summons, but were cut through production of the game.

** A few people have acquired the THQ build under orders not to distribute it. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QA_CaJBBig Videos from these builds]] show multiple additional characters and locations as part of the original Goth Kids' questline. While recruiting the Goth Kids as in the final game, the player is tasked with defeating Vampire Kids in the cemetery behind the Church, where they are using the (seemingly abandoned) South Park Genetic Engineering Ranch to try to summon H. P. Lovecraft to defeat otherwordly beings. After a boss battle with Mike "Vampir" McKowski, their leader, the player meets the Goth Kids at Perkins' restaurant (previously a Village Inn or Benny's in the show, depending on the episode) and they summon Lovecraft (and briefly Michael Jackson) only to be disappointed in him. A potential truce at Vampir's House (locked in the final game) results in the discovery the beings are, in fact, Crab People.
**The game's files still yet included just a few small files for EV Games and Hell's Pass Hospital (nothing compared to the final locations) and there's also two lines for Dr. Doctor/Dr. Gouache ("This colon's gone spastic!") but there's no indication how he might've fit into the game.
**The files relating to the 'Inn of the Giggling Donkey' level, which Ubisoft trailers and the final game indicate takes place at the Valmer Residence, and sets up the boss battle with Jimmy, all refer to it as the Donnely House, referring to CanonForeigner Chris Donnely, who also has extra boss dialogue in the files. Like everything else, this seems to have been a casualty of moving to Ubisoft.

* ReleaseDateChange: Originally set for release on 2012, but got delayed to April 2013 considering the financial difficulties of Creator/{{THQ}}. When the publisher went bankrupt and the asset sold to Creator/{{Ubisoft}}, the release date was moved even further to December 11, 2013, then March 4, 2014. It's become so infamous that the show itself has referenced it. To paraphrase Cartman, dressed in his Stick of Truth outfit: "You know what you get when you reserve a game? A big dick in your mouth!"

* DevelopmentHell: The game was supposed to be released in late 2012 before being delayed. Twice. Then, it was delayed again, its release date was eventually 2014. This has been almost entirely due to Parker and Stone constantly rewriting the script. The season 17 episode "Black Friday" had Cartman raging about the worthlessness of pre-orders for video games, and sarcasm around the game "coming soon."
* OneOfUs: Parker and Stone filled the game's script with parodies, deconstructions and references to various [=RPGs=] and tropes.
