Who among us remembers the insanely difficult and weird South Park first person shooter game for Nintendo 64? I rented that business back when it first came out and played maybe 30 minutes before throwing the controller against the wall and peacing out. No dice, old school South Park video game.

But now Matt Stone and Trey Parker are trying their hand at the video game market again with a new South Park-based RPG for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Details on the story are still fuzzy, but you’ll play a kid in South Park tasked with making friends and defending the town from dangerous things. Maybe like Mecha Streisand? Who knows?

To learn more, be sure to pick up the January issue of Game Informer, which will feature more details and an interview with Stone and Parker (along with a kickass cover image of the South Park community, which you can find here. Their website will also offer content throughout January for your perusal.
