Dude. You Killed Kenny.

March 28, 2007

Viacom is making a bet on mobile entertainment, bringing 14 live television channels to Sprint subscribers and signing on its first advertisers for wireless programming.

The company will also give new meaning to the phrase “Who Killed Kenny?” next week when “South Park 10: The Game” goes live on most mobile phone services in the U.S. and Europe.South Park 10

Viacom’s Comedy Central and RealNetworks unveiled the game for mobile phones based on the cartoon series today at the CTIA wireless show in Florida. You can pretend to be Cartman, or Kyle or Kenny and get chased through tunnels as preachers throw the book at you. Or help Starvin’ Marvin get his Martians back to outer space.

Tom Akel, the game’s producer also confirms to Reuters that you can kill Kenny when you play the game, or in one of the game’s storylines “you get to play the anime version of Kenny fighting ninjas.” Enough said.

South Park’s already got some online games, like the high-minded “Poo Blast” and “Inspector Butters.”
