The foul-mouthed residents of South Park are coming soon to the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in a new role-playing game from publisher THQ and developer Obsidian Entertainment.

Game Informer broke the news earlier today when it revealed South Park: The Game as the cover of its January issue. THQ and Obsidian will collaborate with South Park Digital Studios on the project. Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will oversee development of the game, as well as write the script and perform the dialogue.

As the new kid in South Park, it’ll be up to the player to make friends and defend the town from a wide range of threats, according to Game Informer. THQ describes the game as an “epic role-playing adventure” that will allow the player to explore the Colorado town like never before.

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

South Park: The Game is scheduled to be released in the second half of calendar 2012.
