EA Partners, a division of Electronic Arts, have announced they will be collaborating with two indie developers to bring their creations to the Xbox Live Arcade this year. Hothead Games (Penny Arcade Adventures) is developing DeathSpank, the brainchild of Ron Gilbert, which he describes as a cross between Monkey Island and Diablo. Klei Entertainment (Eets: Chowdown, N+) will offer Shank, a 2D side-scrolling beat'em up.

This publishing deal is similar to Take-Two's "2K Play" division which brought us Axel & Pixel and The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, aiming at more creative, interesting and fresh ideas from today's best developers.

We have two Shank screens and two DeathSpank screens in their respective galleries and the debut trailers of each (which first appeared at last year's PAX)  embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

Let me be the first to say that both of these look brutally awesome.
