NEW YORK, March 26, 2012 – South Park Digital Studios LLC announced today that its all-new downloadable video game “South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge,” will be arriving Friday, March 30, exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The multi-player, co-op, drop-in video game, published by Microsoft Studios and developed by Other Ocean Interactive and South Park Digital Studios, will provide fans with more than 20 levels and 80 side branches of hilarious classic platformer gameplay.
Fans can play locally or online as Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny as they travel through time and space to battle Scott Tenorman and his army of Ginger robots before they destroy South Park and, more importantly, the boys’ Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drive. Players will visit locations spanning the show’s history including Heaven, Hell, Future South Park, the South Park sewers, PiPi’s Water Park, Tynacorp, Peru and the Poo Choo Express. To save South Park the boys will face off against Ginger robots, multi-assed minions, time bombs, Manbearpig and much more. Each boy has been designated a special ability to use throughout the game. Cartman “belly barges” through walls, Stan throws a football to hit ranged targets, Kenny has a super high jump, and Kyle confuses Ginger robots and their shields by “daywalking” (revealing his ginger hair). For added fun, each player can also become the boys’ superhero alter ego throughout different parts of the game, turning in to The Coon, Mysterion, Human Kite, and Toolshed.
Fans can purchase the game for 800 Microsoft Points or can enter to win a game code through the purchase of “South Park: The Complete Fifteenth Season” Blu-ray and DVD available tomorrow, March 27. Each Blu-ray and DVD will include a unique code inside for fans to enter at www.southparkstudios.com/season15 to get thousands of prizes, including a downloadable game code.
