South Park took a hilarious swipe at superhero franchises in a new trailer for the South Park: The Fractured but Whole game. Riffing on the crowded lineup for Marvel and DC Comics, the heroes of South Park bicker over who gets their own movie or Netflix series.

The Fractured but Whole is a sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth. It was announced at E3 2015, and Trey Parker and Matt Stone returned to Ubisoft’s E3 event on Monday to make a Dec. 6 release date official.

South Park: The Fractured but Whole still has you playing as the New Kid, but this time you build your own superhero persona. The game also features a new combat system that lets you manipulate time and space while in a fight, through things like hyper-powerful farts (this is South Park, after all).

If you decide to pre-order the game, Ubisoft will throw in a copy of The Stick of Truth for free.
