After its original last gen release and being bundled with South Park: The Fractured But Whole on PS4 and Xbox One, South Park: The Stick of Truth has now made it onto Nintendo Switch - allowing a new group of players to revisit the New Kid's original adventure, either at home or while on the go.

The Stick of Truth is much more demanding that its sequel when it comes to the various collectibles, hiding many of them within specific story quests which makes them highly missable, so if you're attempting to grab every trophy or achievement then you need to know what you're looking for along the way. That's where our guides come in, as we'll show you where to find every hidden item, and ensure your collection is complete.

We've spent countless hours combing the game and locating every hidden collectible to make sure you don't miss any, as well as finding all the locations you need to complete every difficult side quest along the way.

As you work your way through the story, there are a full 120 people to befriend on the game's version of social media, either by talking to them or completing certain tasks. Some of them can only be added during specific story quests, and if you miss them then you won't be able to earn the More Popular Than John Lennon trophy/achievement, so make sure you follow our South Park: The Stick of Truth Friends locations guide.

South Park: The Stick of Truth Chinpokomon

There's no prize for guessing which franchise South Park's Chinpokomon is sending up, but there is the Chinpokolypse trophy/achievement available for collecting all 30 of the unusual critters. Again, some of them can only be found during specific story quests, so check out our South Park: The Stick of Truth Chinpokomon locations guide if you want to catch them all.
