Comedy Central Mobile and RealArcade Mobile are preparing to launch a mobile game based on the popular ‘Imaginationland’ three-episode story arc of the long-running, animated television series South Park. The title will be available across various carriers and on a variety of handsets including the Apple iPhone and various Windows Mobile and Blackberry mobile devices. Offering more than 60 levels of gameplay, the game is slated for release worldwide in June.
The player’s mission in the South Park ‘Imaginationland’ game is to take on Butters’ massive job of saving the world in three arenas’Happy Imaginationland, Evil Imaginationland and The Battle for Imaginationland. The quest begins with the Mayor of Imaginationland teaching the player how to bounce high by using imagination. The player must then utilize his or her bouncing skills to collect items and accomplish missions inside an allotted time limit. As the player accomplishes more missions, Butters gains extra imagination power to deliver Imaginationland from the grasp of evil.
This is the second South Park mobile game made in cooperation with RealArcade Mobile, which ports casual PC games to mobile handsets and other portable devices. RealArcade Mobile has created more than 40 games supporting more than 800 handsets for wireless carriers around the world.
The ‘Imaginationland’ trilogy of episodes helped the current 12th season of South Park snag it highest ratings since the show’s second season back in 1998. The programming event has also been a hit on DVD since its March release by Comedy Central Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The uncensored disc includes additional footage created exclusively for the release. New episodes of South Park premiere on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central.
