Doing the 'forbidden dance of justice' on XBLA is DeathSpank, the latest creation to emerge from the fertile mind of Ron Gilbert, the man behind the funniest pirate... island... monkey... game, Monkey Island.
Starring the titular hero DeathSpank and co-op sidekick Sparkles the wizard, the forthcoming arcade title places an emphasis on working together, with both players sharing a health bar in co-op mode.
A slice of the co-op DeathSpank action is demonstrated in a video with commentary by the game's Producer, Hamish Miller and shows Sparkles and Mr. Spank fighting their way through waves of 'Orques' and Pips using a combination of spells and melee attacks.
Before that though is the game's trailer, which neatly introduces the character of DeathSpank and sets up the game, which is due to vanquish evil on the Xbox Live Arcade on July 13th.
