Before the launch of every new issue, Game Informer likes to tease its contents by revealing the cover art in advance. The boys of South Park grace the cover of the January issue, as it is revealed within that THQ and Obsidian Entertainment are developing a new RPG based on the long-running cartoon series. And who better to pen the script and voice the characters than the show’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
Not to be confused with the upcoming XBLA exclusive, South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge, the new game is described as a “full-scale RPG” coming to Xbox 360 and PS3. You’ll take on the role of a new kid in South Park, and you’ll need to make friends and help defend the titular town from a variety of threats.
Very little else is currently known about the new South Park RPG, and while it won’t be launching until sometime in 2012, we’ll have more for you as it becomes available.
