Game Informer’s latest cover brings us some information on the next South Park game, and this time creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be more involved.

In association with THQ and Obsidian (developers of Dave’s beloved Alpha Protocol), South Park: The Game will release as “a full-scale RPG for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.” Playing as a new kid in South Park, the player will “defend the town” from threats, no doubt in reference to events in the show (hippies, probably).

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be “writing the script, performing the dialogue, and overseeing the development” of the game, too- not just outsourcing that all to the developers.

More details will be revealed when the January edition of Game Informer is released.

According to THQ, the game is scheduled to be available for PS3, 360 and PC in the second half of 2012.
