South Park has been around the video game block a few times, but its latest trip could be remarkably different. South-park

South Park Digital Studios and Obsidian Entertainment, makers of "Fallout: New Vegas," are teaming to create a South Park role-playing game. THQ will publish the title.

"South Park: The Game" will put users in the construction paper shoes of a new resident of the titular Colorado town, where they befriend Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny and explore the city's eccentricities.

“Our goal is simple: to put creative talent first,” said Danny Bilson, EVP of core games, THQ. “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.”

The show, as mentioned above, is no stranger to gaming. Four titles have been made since 1998, with a fifth arcade style game for Xbox Live Arcade due in the spring of 2012. None, though, have been critical darlings.
