South Park seconds coming to Xbox 360

Comedy Central game studio creative director confirms new title based on cartoon series en route for Microsoft's platform.

Unlike the aesthetically crude Comedy Central show it was based on, South Park's first brush with gaming in the late '90s was objectively not good. However, Microsoft and Comedy Central went a long way to righting the franchise in gamers' minds with their 2009 tower-defense title South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play.

Now, it appears as if a second South Park game is headed exclusively to the Xbox 360. Speaking to Joystiq, 345 Games creative director Prithvi Virasinghe confirmed that his studio is collaborating with Microsoft on a new title based on the tiny-town travails of Kyle, Stan, Kenny, and Cartman.

"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," Virasinghe said. The head of 345 Games, which is Comedy Central's internal game development arm, went on to note that the second South Park game will mark the end of its exclusivity deal with Microsoft. Additional details on the title were not revealed.

South Park may be goin' back down to Xbox Live.

Beyond South Park, Virasinghe also indicated that he'd like to create a game based on mock right-wing talk-show host Stephen Colbert. "It has to be the right combination of game idea meets property," he said.

Microsoft had not responded to a request for comment as of press time. For more on the original South Park title for Xbox Live, check out GameSpot's review of South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play.

@warhawk-geeby Come on baby...let's do the twist.

@lifemeister I wasn't complaining at it being on the xbox, it wasn't an anti-xbox comment. It's just a shame that it won't be on other systems. You're twisting my words man!

@warhawk-geeby No you calm down..hahaha. There is no good reason for your anti-xbox comment. Can't blame MS for competing. Every company has their exclusives; hence, there's no reason to be surprised that another exclusive game is coming to XBOX. Logic buddy...logic.

@lifemeister Where the hell did that come from? Geeez.. Calm down already I was only saying.. And anyways, lots of folks appear to have agreed with me so I think I'll just pretend you didn't say anything. Oh yeah and quit the quoting, it's annoying as hell.

The last game was pretty good. The only people that didn't like it are the people who think the ONLY good games are first person shooters. Too bad, missing out on so many other great games that aren't FPS'. I have a feeling the next South Park game will be pretty good too. I doubt they'll do tower defense again, but the fact that they used what almost felt like a mini-game formula in each level, I think they'll try to expand on that (haters, don't misquote me, I did not say the last game was a bunch of minigames). Don't get crazy thinking they have a huge budget, I'm certain this will be another $10-15 XBLA game. So don't expect some huge, open-world game

"South Park is actually in a first-party deal with Microsoft Studios" Oh so THAT'S why South Park references Xbox every chance it gets.

@warhawk-geeby You: Xbox only.. Urgh. Stop hating and just get one so you can play the games you're missing out on. If not, stop being a hater and leaving your one-cents on GameSpot.

Used to think this show was so stupid. About two years ago though I got into really bad the World of Warcraft episode just got me hooked. Till this day it's still my favorite episodes and I've seen jsut about all of them. The one where Cartman kills his dad is second and third is the facebook episode. "So I guess were not friends?" "F U dad!"

I enjoyed the original south park game (N64), so this could be interesting. Depends on what genre it is.

I need a South Park game with jokes, not mediocre/average gameplay. If you wanna add mini-games, you're welcome, but the adventure should focus on a what the show does best: social-political satire.

I enjoyed the tower defense game. If it's a FPS...then I hope it's like the old N64 game, was a lot of fun with friends.

They need to make a full blown adventure game based on South Park, one as hilarious and great as the Beavis and Butthead adventure game was.
