Another South Park Game Coming Exclusively To Xbox 360
Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are on their way back to the Xbox 360. 345 Games, the gaming arm of Comedy Central, has confirmed that a second South Park game is in development.
"Right now, South Park is actually in a first-party deal with Microsoft Studios, who published the first game, and they're doing a second game as well," 345 Games creative director Prithvi Virasinghe told Joystiq. "After that, that first-party exclusivity window expires, and we get a shot of taking that back,"
The first game created under Comedy Central and Microsoft's agreement was South Park Letís Go Tower Defense Play!. It was released through Xbox Live Arcade in 2009. In the game, Stan and his friends were tasked with defending the town from assorted enemies, including ManBearPig, Scott Tenorman, and Mongolians.
"As a licensed XBLA release, South Park Letís Go Tower Defense Play! surprises and entertains, making it well-deserving of any gamer's time and money," read Gaming Blend's review of the game.
Tower Defense Play! was developed by Doublesix. The Guildford-based studio went on to create Burn Zombie Burn!, a top-down, arena-based shooter in which your objective is to kill as many zombies as possible before dying. It's unclear what their next project is. Considering the strong reviews of Tower Defense Play!, you'd imagine Doublesix would be hired for the second SP game as well.
South Park (the show) is in its fifteenth season. There's definitely a lot of material to work with, there. Should they stick with tower defense, though? Or branch into another genre?
