Though the original DeathSpank was released less than two and a half months ago, EA and Hothead Games have already released a sequel to action / adventure RPG. The sequel, known as DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, is now available in the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Arcade, at a price of $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft points respectively. In the game, players are tasked with retrieving six mystical thongs from new environments such as the north pole and a sea-based environment. New, more modern weapons have been added and besides Sparkles the Wizard, a new character has been added that can be used in cooperative play.

Users who purchase the game during the first week in which it is available will receive two free pieces of DLC: an area known as the Snowy Mountain Dungeon, and a new sidekick known as Tankko.

In celebration of the launch of DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, Hothead Games has announced that it will make the soundtrack to the game available free of charge if enough users become a fan of the Facebook fan page. Roughly 600 fans have “Liked” Hothead’s page at this time, and an additional 3,400 are required until the soundtrack is released.

It is unclear whether a third installment in the series is currently in development.
