Thanks to their January cover reveal, Game Informer has pulled back the curtain on a new South Park RPG, entitled “South Park: The Game.” While it’s true we’ve seen a couple of South Park titles in the past (The N64 shooter by Acclaim and a few XBLA offerings), this one will be different. How so, you might be wondering? Well, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are actually heavily involved in the development process for this one, penning the script, recording all the game’s dialogue and overseeing the project from top to bottom.

South Park: The Game is being jointly-developed by THQ and Obsidian and is expected to launch of Xbox 360 and PS3. To learn more about the game, be sure to pick up the January issue of Game Informer where you can read a full preview of the title, as well as an interview with Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
