Game Informer's January cover reveals that a new South Park game is in the offing... and its credentials may surprise you. South Park: The Game will be a "full scale" RPG that allows you to assume the role of a new kid in town, and is being developed by none other than Obsidian Entertainment. Considering that this veteran outfit brought us Fallout: New Vegas and Alpha Protocol, this is probably worth getting excited about, mmmkay?
South Park: The Game is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, with a tentative release date of Q3 2012. Prepare to make some highly dysfunctional friends and protect the town from a variety of threats. [Picture courtesy of Game Informer]
