Video game publisher THQ has announced it has a new South Park video game in development.
South Park: the Game is an RPG (role-playing game), in which players will be able to explore the show’s titular town and interact with its characters, including protagonists Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman.
The show’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, will write the game’s script and provide voices for the project, which will be available for Sony’s Playstation 3, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Windows PCs when it is released.
The game is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind acclaimed RPGs in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights franchises.
“Matt and Trey are arguably two of the most important comedic talents of their generation,” said THQ executive Danny Bilson in a statement. “Bringing their vision of South Park to the interactive space is a dream come true.”
Previous games based on the franchise, such as South Park Rally and South Park: Chef’s Luv Shack, were poorly received by the gaming community when they appeared on older games consoles such as the Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast.
