We persevered for the sake of our review, and there was certainly plenty to like about the package, but the formula wore thin a little too quickly for our tastes. It's bemusing, therefore, that Hothead Games has already announced the franchise's sequel — and it's due out next month.
Kotaku reports that Deathspank: Thongs Of Virtue will hit the PlayStation Network on the 21st September. The news that it will be 50% longer than the first game sent simultaneous groans around the office.
Apparently it'll feature new settings like the North Pole, and new weapons including guns. Sadly, you won't be able to carry across your progress from the first game, which seems like a missed opportunity.
