Obsidian’s next is a South Park RPG

GameInformer’s monthly cover reveal/game announcement delivered the goods yesterday, revealing a new South Park RPG from Alpha Protocol developer Obsidian Games. Its title? South Park: The Game. Duh.

Show writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone are lending a hand in the game’s creation, even recording the dialogue. THQ is publishing the title, which will put players in the shoes of a new character in South Park, who has to make friends with the classic characters and defend the town from a variety of threats.

It’s an odd IP to bring to gaming – we’re wondering if the N64 FPS title was a better fit for the show – but with a dev like Obsidian on board, color us at least somewhat interested. South Park: The Game will hit on PS3, 360 and PC next year.
