Forget about those silly Acclaim titles from way back when. "South Park" is going big-time.

As revealed by Game Informer , South Park: The Game is currently in the works. It's a collaborative effort between THQ, Obsidian, and "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Parker and Stone will be writing the script, performing the dialogue, and overseeing the development process. Believe it or not, this is a "full scale RPG" for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It isn't some funny little action or adventure game to be delivered in digital format; it seems everyone involved is serious about producing an ambitious, quality product. You will be the new kid in South Park and you'll have to gain allies and "defend the town from a wide range of threats." …what threats? Your guess is as good as ours.

The January issue of the magazine will feature an interview with the main men in charge, and we'll hopefully get an estimated release date, too. All we know is that it'll drop some time next year.

Okay, so who's ready to kill off Kenny?

Will Kenny be dying in real time or with a turn-based mechanic?

This is the kind of game that could really make turn-based shine.

Considering the art style, you are 1005 correct.

@Underdog

It is Kenny so I'm sure they'll find a way to do both.

I can see a minigame already that will have you both capturing and then defending Kennys mom and whoever has control will have an army of Kennys at their disposal.

yeah i saw that very interesting. matt and trey are brilliant to just come up with ideas and deliver an episode in such a short time week after week. south park is my all time favorite show. although i didn't really like this season that much "you're getting old" was the only episode i liked

Oh.. so that's what Obsidian's licensed RPG was. Here I was thinking it might be worthwhile.

Hahahahhaha!

It would work as well! Just imagine all the boss fights:

-Mecha Streisand
-Saddam Hussein & Satan
-The Woodland Critters
-The Guinea Pirate
-Professor Chaos
-Scott Tennorman
-Bono
-Michael Jefferson
-MANBEARPIG
-Tuong Lu Kim/Dr. Janus
-Eric Cartman himself

Then factions such as the 5th graders, the girls, AAA (Sea Otters), the Gingers, NAMBLA, Japanese (Chinpokomon & Dolphin and wrale phase), the Mongorians, New Jersey, the Rednecks (DHEY TUK ERR JERBS!) the Aliens, Angels/Mormons, The Confediracaahh.

Then the boys have their own themes (The superhero phase and anime phase).

Combine that with the Lochness Monster (tree fiddy!), Rob Schneider, Scuzzlebutt, Mitch Connor, everything consisting of Randy Marsh's hilarity + everything from Imagination land and it will be enough to make more than just an RPG.

I just really hope it'll be well executed.

Now that we have Beavis & Butthead back on the air, lets do another great game w those two lovable idiots. Anyone remember Virtual Stupidity? That was a fantastic game. Could even go home & watch music videos on the couch. There were only 3, but by God it never got old.

Amazing news.

South Park is one of few consecutivly good comedy shows i have seen from America.
I consider Matt Stone and Trey Parker two of the brightest and most intelligent minds in comedy.

This just spells win/win.
