"New" South Park Info

Highlights from the 12-page cover story in issue #225 of GameInformer:



General Info:
Trey Parker & Matt Stone are writing the script and dialogue
Due to it's offensive, outrageous, and absurd content, Obsidian sent a company-wide email to determine which employees were willing to work on the project

Game Info:
South Park: The Game is a turn-based RPG that serves as equal parts tribute and parody to the pillars of the game
Players have control of a customizable avatar editor that far exceeds any online
Role-playing and fantasy are large components of the game, but your still a fourth grader in the modern world.
Your friendship status will be tracked via your smartphone in a "Facebook-like app"
"If you were to stumble into the room while someone was playing the game, nothing about the perspective would tip you off that it wasn't an episode of the show. Characters walk with the same herky-jerky style, and the environments come directly from 15 years of South Park Digital Studios assets."
Like the classic Final Fantasy encounters, battles are presented from a side view.
Obsidian doesn't want players to press a button and sit back to watch, so they've added dynamic camera angles at certain times, such as when your character stuns an enemy with Ro Sham Bo.
Similar to Final Fantasy VII's materia, your weapons can be augmented to grant various abilities. And yes, there will be summons too.
This marks the first time the creators had to figure out the layout for South Park, like "where's school in relation to Stan's house?"
There will be collectibles, such as Chinpokomon
The game will not require platforming and is utilizing the Dungeon Siege III engine

Story Info:
Game begins with the children of South Park deeply involved in live-action role-playing
Players will assume the role of "new kid that's moved to South Park"
Parker: "It's about working through the game to the point where you're going from this little douchebag that no one cares about to standing there with the four boys at the bus stop."
When you meet Cartman early in the game, you will choose your class.
Standard class options include wizard, paladin, adventurer and rogue. The fifth unconventional class is "obviously one of Cartman's own creations."
It's important that the comedy and story fit together well, like in Portal 2
ESRB will be expected to have a "conversation" with Parker which he's said "We've come up against worse."

I still can't believe those guys never even had a crude layout of the town.

Anyway, I'm very very intrigued. This should blow the N64 game out of the water lol

This makes the game sound awesome. However I just hope it doesn't get banned here like everything else that isn't rainbows and gumdrops.

Agree again.

My big thing is a turn-based RPG. Those are always appealing to me for some reason. I'm curious to see what Cartman's special class is. Speculation?

I am still not understanding how the game will work as turn-based.

Someone will probably explain (and correct my mistakes) better than me, but did you ever play any of the original Final Fantasy games? During fight sequences, your party members will be on the left side of the screen facing the enemies on the right side of the screen. During the fight, your opportunity to make a "move" (attack, magic, item, etc) will happen in order. For example, let's say your party consists of your character and Kenny, and you run into 2 enemies. Your character starts the fight based on what you decide. You choose "attack enemy #1". Once the damage is dealt, next is Kenny. He attacks enemy #1 and kills it off. Now it's enemy #2's turn (since #1 is dead) and he attacks you. It's your turn again, so you heal yourself and then Kenny goes and attacks again. Enemy chooses to attack Kenny and then you attack the enemy to finish it off. All sequences were in turn, hence "turn based"

In hindsight, maybe I'll look for a vid to show it better, since that's a pain to read.

EDIT: This video is a parody, but it kinda proves my point. Party members are on the right side of the screen and the turns are party member/boss instead of the example I gave of all party/then enemies.

Skyrim style? Or FF12 style? I'm intrigued by the RPG elements in the South Park world!


Saddam as the final main quest boss anyone?

Possible, but I doubt they'd change it up at this point in the development. Gamestop (unreliable source) is showing release date for 12/31/12. So who knows for sure.

He's definitely in it, since he's on the GameInformer cover. Definitely a boss, IMO, but not the final boss, again IMO.

I'm still curious to see the 5th class. SuperHero comes to mind, but it's not an "obvious Cartman creation."

I wouldn't mind the Skyrim style, it sure does make things faster and bosses feel more epic when you can move all around them, instead of just taking turns taking and giving hits. But I am willing to give it a shot, I'm a gamer ya know. I enjoy all types of games, and what they're brewing up, it seems like this will be a game I'll buy, it seems pretty unique.

Will you be using character(s) from South Park or creating your own?

Your main character (that you control 100% of the game) is a character you create. You will have various South Park kids as party members throughout the game.

Those are all current in-game fighting screenshots. I don't think they've added in the HUD, yet. Here's an "exploring the town" screenshot:

It's part of their selling point, it's supposed to look like and feel like the show.

"If you were to stumble into the room while someone was playing the game, nothing about the perspective would tip you off that it wasn't an episode of the show. Characters walk with the same herky-jerky style, and the environments come directly from 15 years of South Park Digital Studios assets."

loving this game, read all of this when i got that issue of "game informer."

for those wondering about the RPG, they will not budge. in a interview they stated why and how much they enjoy RPG, and the turn-based strategy was something they wanted to put in there.

the good thing about this game is matt and trey are actually being directly involved in the production. unlike previous titles where they just added some humor and the game didnt end up in the direction they wanted.

after reading the whole article in Game Informer i was really excited. for those who arent sure on the whole "turn based RPG," you should consider giving it a chance if you are a big fan of the show. this will by far be the game that does south park the most justice.

Agree completely. I'm impatiently waiting for more details. 5th character class? Which characters will appear as summons? How many hours for story? Side quests? Well...you get the idea.
