South Park RPG in the works
While South Park has become a cult phenomenon ever since it aired almost 15 years ago, the series never really found a foothold in the gaming world. Acclaim tried with a variety of titles like Chef's Luv Shack and South Park Rally back in the day but even though some of the games were pretty decent, they never really reached the high standards set by the original show.
Flash forward to the present, and all this might change. As revealed by Game Informer, a South Park RPG is in the works over at Obsidian Entertainment, with the game's story being penned by none other than the show's original creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Simply titled South Park: The Game, it will be a full-scale RPG for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. From the press release:
And...that's about all that is known about the game at this point. More info will be revealed in Game Informer's January issue, shipping to subscribers in Dec 2011. If any g1s happen to get this issue before us, feel free to let us know in the comments or email@example.com.
With Obsidian developing and the show's creators on board, naturally hopes are high that this game will finally be a worthy videogame adaption of the show. What do you guys think? Could it work?
