South Park: Snow Day-Themed Xbox Series X Consoles Includes Four Unique Designs of Iconic Characters

Microsoft is at it again with the custom-themed Xbox Series X consoles based on video games coming to the platform. The latest outing is four custom consoles inspired by the latest South Park video game subtitled Snow Day.

Announced in a new Xbox Wire blog post, the new consoles, which you can check out in the image below, come in four unique designs and a specially-themed controller. Each one includes the main characters from the popular animated series: Eric Cartman, Kyle Broflovski, Stan Marsh, and Kenny McCormick in their fantasy-themed costumes as depicted in the new game.

Fans can win one of these four limited-edition consoles by entering a “limited-time” sweepstakes that ends on April 25. To enter, fans must follow the official Xbox Twitter/X account and retweet the official post. The sweepstake’s official rules mention the post goes live at 9am PT / 12pm ET today, March 26, with the entry period concluding on Monday, April 22 at 8pm PT / 11pm ET.

South Park: Snow Day, out today on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Switch, is a hack-and-slash video game developed by Question and published by THQ Nordic. Snow Day focuses on Cartman and the crew as they celebrate not having school for the day, thanks to inclement weather. Players assume the role of a custom character as the town’s kids are playing in snow-based combat with fantasy-themed costumes akin to what the characters were seen wearing in South Park: The Stick of Truth.

“Aggravating hack-and-slash combat and surprisingly sparse jokes make South Park: Snow Day! dull, toothless, and a big step in the wrong direction for South Park games,” according to IGN’s South Park: Snow Day review.

As we mentioned previously, this is not the first time Microsoft has created themed hardware to celebrate a specific occasion for a franchise. Last week, the company revealed a Fallout-themed Xbox Series X with its own vault to commemorate the upcoming premiere of the Fallout TV Show. Additional collaborations this year include a Final Fantasy 14-themed Series X and a Dune: Part 2 controller; however, the former is a bit bizarre, as the console itself is more of a novelty and not a functioning Series X console.
