South Park Meets Dungeon Siege III

This is not the premise for a new South Park episode pointing fun at obese gamers. Trey and Matt have jumped on board with Obsidian to help make a baby merging South Park with the RPG genre.While this premise seems extremely ridiculous, when you look at the true spectrum of South Park it does seem entirely plausible. Not only are Trey and Matt helping with the game they have also given Obsidian full access to the series in hopes of making the greatest game possible. For the interest of time I will now start to bullet things...just be aware none of the following details are rock solid confirm and could still be caused to speculation:

  • The player’s character will be fully customizable.
  • Your character has a smartphone that acts as the primary game menu and has a facebook-like app show the number of friends you have and your current standing with the various kid factions.
  • There are five classes, which are wizard, paladin, adventurer, rogue, and a fifth unannounced class.
  • Obsidian is using the Dungeon Siege III engine.
  • Parker and Stone gave Obsidian 15 years of assets used during the show and a detailed list of approved textures and colors.
  • Many elements of the combat system are like Paper Mario and the Mario & Luigi games.
  • The player will play as the new kid in town, the main theme of the game is fitting in and being accepted.
  • There is a Final Fantasy Materia like system in the game to augment weapons with various abilities like fire, poison, and electricity.
  • When they started making the town hub Parker and Stone realized that they did not have a true layout for the town, so they had fun figuring out where everything went.
Just thought that last bullet was funny and I completely believe that is 100% true.
