Hothead Games’ hilarious downloadable RPG DeathSpank only came out last month, but Electronic Arts announced today that the sequel, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, will be coming to PlayStation Network ($14.99) on September 21 and Xbox Live Arcade (1200 Microsoft Points) on September 22.
Thongs of Virtue finds the titular hero in search of six mystical thongs that were once part of a plan to bring peace and balance to the universe. In order to stop the corruption wrought by the tiny undergarments from spreading, DeathSpank must track them down and destroy them. Helping players on their journey are two new playable sidekicks: Sparkles the Wizard and the “ninjatastic Kung Fu” expert Steve, both of which can be played by a second player in the game's new local co-op mode.
"Bigger, longer, harder--these were the words that drove us while we created the follow up to our introduction to the DeathSpank universe," said Hothead games director of game development Vlad Ceraldi. "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 humor."
Here are two more screens of Thongs of Virtue for your thong-loving pleasure:
