Microsoft’s contract with South Park Digital Studios calls for two Xbox Live Arcade-exclusive South Park titles. The first, 2009’s Let’s Go Tower Defense Play! is an absolutely fantastic tower defense game with 4-player co-op. Just over two years later, we’ll finally get a sequel of sorts: South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge. The developer this time is Other Ocean Interactive, makers of the unfortunately buggy Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection as well as the NES-talgic platformer, Dark Void Zero.
The storyline of Tenorman’s Revenge is a sequel to the Season 5 episode “Scott Tenorman Must Die!” in which Eric Cartman is repeatedly thwarted by the titular sixth grader, only to eventually defeat him by... Let’s just say Scott Tenorman is justifiably angry!
South Park Digital Studios LLC announced today that Scott Tenorman has returned with a vengeance in the all-new downloadable XBLA video game "South Park: Tenormans Revenge." The platformer will be available in spring 2012 exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, the leader in digitally distributed games.
"South Park: Tenorman's Revenge" is being developed by Other Ocean Interactive and published by Microsoft Studios. Fans will get to play as Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny as they battle Scott Tenorman and his Ginger army. The games multi-player co-op features allow players to team up with up to four other players locally or through Xbox LIVE to save "South Park."
The teaser trailer shows us that Tenorman’s Revenge will be a platforming game in which up to four players battle enemies by jumping on their heads. They’ll also be able to pick up weapons. While only the original four South Park boys have been announced as playable characters so far, Cartman’s alter ego The Coon definitely makes an appearance. Will Mint-Berry Crunch show up as well? Perhaps even more importantly, will South Park: Tenorman’s Revenge match the high awesomeness bar set by its predecessor? Only time will tell!
