I don't know. You wait for one off-the-wall, humour-packed action RPG and two come along at once. With DeathSpank releasing on the Xbox Live Marketplace just over a month ago, expecting a sequel just a couple of months later might seem fairly optimistic, but EA and Hothead Games are doing just that, announcing DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue for a September release.
So, DeathSpank is back, fighting the forces of evil to find and destroy the six thongs of virtue corrupting those who wear them across the land, dragging co-op buddy Sparkles the Wizard along for the ride. And new high-kicking Kung Fu sidekick, Steve, will let players choose between two of DeathSpank's buddies for local co-op.
"Bigger, longer, harder - these were the words that drove us while we created the follow up to our introduction to the DeathSpank universe," said Vlad Ceraldi, Director of Game Development for Hothead Games. "In T.O.V., we're taking action RPG fundamentals and adding loads of new creatures, environments, weapons and characters, while continuing to push the envelope with our signature humour."
DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will be available from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 Microsoft Points on September 22nd, 2010. Check out the first three screens below:
