First details on South Park: The Game revealed
A few details regarding the recently announced South Park: The Game have hit the net today, and it looks like the game is shaping up nicely. It will be based on the Dungeon Siege 3 engine and feature turn-based battles similar to the Mario & Luigi RPG games in what we can assume will be 2D environments. There will also be weapons to pick up and Summons to...um, summon I guess.
You will take the role of a silent protagonist and get to pick between 5 different classes: Paladin, Wizard, Adventurer, Rogue and an "unconventional" class made up by - who else? - Cartman. I guess it's safe to say then that the game will be inspired by the TV Episode The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers and will nail the anything-goes kind of humor the show is known for.
On your quest you'll have to make friends with the other kids of South Park as well as various factions. You can keep track of all this on your smartphone, which will act as the game's menu system. Another thing to keep an eye on are the the various collectibles that have been promised, like Chinpokomon dolls. I hope they include Shoe, as he's the coolest. When you're not making friends or doing quests, you can explore the town of South Park at your leisure.
And that's about it for the first slew of information. What do you guys think? Are you excited? Worried? Do you think your Pengin could beat my Shoe? (it obviously couldn't.) Sound off in the comments below!
I will be happy if one of the summons is either mr.spanky or dearth cheif
SHENANIGANS! SHENANIGANS! I DECLARE SHENANIGANS! EVERYBODY GRAB A BROOMSTICK!
I think it will be mediocre.
This is going to be amazing or abysmal. I have a feeling there's going to be no middle ground here.
I have a bad feeling about this.
Lol, I wonder if you have to bomb pearl harbor to ubtain the ultimate power XD
this could be sweet. i can imagine a sort of post apocalyptic part similar to when all the kids call the police and tell them their parents are molesting them. and it all results in different factions and leaders and chaos. he he
Again it would be some sort of Earthbound with South Park characters.
Making it 2d is the best thing they could do but i'm not gonna hype already my only question now is will it be a download or a full size game
South Park + RPG = genius
How do you know they aren't? ;)
Obsidian? South Park? Rpg? Sold.
I GOT SHOE HAWHAWHAW ^,^
If you wanna know what I think this game will be like, check out Costume Quest.
Man-Bear-Pig. He's super cereal, you guys. *whooshes around wearing a cape*
Of all the square images to use, you had to pick that disturbing one? Anyways, I'm actually somewhat interested in this game since it's being partly worked on by the show's official writers, which is very neat.
while not a fan of south park that accrualy sounds interesting. but I like RPGs so ya know lol
I just wonder if the darn game will even be finished considering Obsidian's track record...
If the South Park crew were Earthbound fans, this would've been a way better game.
I'm calling it right now: Cthulu will be the last boss, but Man-Bear will most certainly make an appearance. This game has a lot of potential.
