The 'South Park' gang is headed to high-def for the first time, with Paramount announcing a March Blu-ray release for the show's twelfth season.

Marking the next-gen debut for Stan, Kyle, and Cartman, Paramount will bring 'South Park: The Complete Twelfth Season' to Blu-ray on March 17 (day-and-date with the standard DVD).

Tech specs will see all 14 uncensored episodes spread across a three-disc set, presented in 1080p video (1.78:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include a trio of making-of featurettes, "Six Days to South Park: Super Fun Time," "Six Days to South Park: The Sixth Day" and "The Making of 'Major Boobage.'"

We've not received a confirmed suggested list price as of yet from the studio, but we'll keep you posted.
