THQ has officially announced upcoming RPG South Park: The Game, which was first revealed yesterday by Game Informer.
In development at Fallout: New Vegas studio Obsidian, which is collaborating on the project with South Park Digital Studios, the joint venture between series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker and Viacom Media Networks, the game will be arriving on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in the second half of calendar 2012.
South Park: The Game is described by publisher THQ as "an epic role-playing adventure that will allow the user to befriend Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny and explore the quiet little mountain town like never before".
Game Informer said: "As the new kid in South Park, it'll be up to you to make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats."
THQ executive VP of core games Danny Bilson added: "Our goal is simple: to put creative talent first. Matt and Trey are arguably two of the most important comedic talents of their generation. Bringing their vision of South Park to the interactive space is a dream-come-true."
