South Park is an unreleased 1998 video game based on the Comedy Central series of the same name, made for the Game Boy Color handheld system by Acclaim Entertainment.
In the midsts of the show's runaway success, Acclaim started development on a first-person shooter based on the series for the Nintendo 64, PlayStation, PC and a Platformer for the Game Boy Color. The game was fully developed and prepared for shipment. However, days before being sent to Nintendo, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone discussed that the Game Boy Color was marketed more towards children, and the GBC version went unreleased. Parker and Stone later kept the prototype copies in commemoration of it being the first South Park game ever. The game was later reprogrammed and released as Maya The Bee in Europe and The New Adventures of Mary Kate and Ashley in the United States.
