We can only assume the disastrous South Park game cash-ins with Activision all those years ago have left Matt Stone and Trey Parker with a lingering sense of guilt. No doubt feeling the needs to make amends, today has seen the announcement of South Park: The Game, the latest cover story over at Game Informer.
Action? Adventure? Racing? Guess again. For this outing the popular franchise will be bathing in the role playing genre, no doubt with similar tongue-in-cheek humour as found in the 'Make Love, Not Warcraft' episode from the series. Published by THQ, development of South Park: The Game will be headed by Obsidian Entertainment, role playing specialists very well known for Fallout: New Vegas, Alpha Protocol and Dungeon Siege III.
To ensure an authentic South Park experience, both Matt and Trey are writing the game's script, which revolves around a new arrival at South Park (that's you!), and voicing all the familiar characters destined to appear.
Scheduled for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, we'll learn more about how the game plays in the very near future.
