Obsidian Making South Park RPG
Today, Game Informer broke the story that THQ and Obsidian (the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas) were working closely with Trey Parker and Matt Stone to put out South Park: The Game. Apparently this will be a full-fledged RPG that sees you as the new kid in town trying to “make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats.” VAGUE.
According to the teaser on Game Informer’s site—the game is the January issue’s cover story—the show’s creators are “writing the script, performing the dialogue, and overseeing the development” of the title, so if you like what they do, you should like this. The game is set to come out sometime in 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 AND PC (no Wii release? That’s odd…), but there’s no word yet on whether this will be a retail release or a downloadable title.
I dunno. Tie-in games…eh, they’re always tough. It’s nice that Parker and Stone—who are enjoying unparalleled success with The Book of Mormon on Broadway—are so heavily involved, though. Because if they weren’t, well, this wouldn’t be much of a story then, would it?
