DeathSpank sequel to premiere 2 months after original debut

23 08 2010

The downloadable hack n’ slash role-playing game DeathSpank, will be receiving a sequel game only two months after it debuted on Xbox Live and Playstation Network in July.

The new sequel is titled DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, and will released onto the Playstation Network on Sept. 21st and on XBLA on Sept. 22nd, as confirmed by GameInformer.

Apparently the sequel has been completed since before the first game debuted, according to a recent Gamespot interview with DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue producer, Hamish Millar.

Millar commented in the article that by working on both games simultaneously, there was no room to listen to feedback and incorporate it into the gameplay, forcing the producers to guess at what would need fixing or changes in the sequel title.

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will reportedly include even more sidequests than the previous title and a new co-op character, according to the Gamespot article.

The original DeathSpank title released on July 13th on PSN and July 14th on XBLA, where it is still available for download at $14.99 or 1,200 MS Points. The sequel will apparently be sold at the same retail value.
