Hothead Games has announced DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, a follow-up to action-RPG DeathSpank which itself was only released last month.

We're promised a bigger adventure this time around, plus more of the trademark humour found in the original.

Thongs of Virtue centres on DeathSpank's journey through a massive war-torn land; explore the North Pole and the high seas to locate six mystical thongs to bring peace and harmony to the universe.

In the sequel DeathSpank does not fight alone, but with the cool Ninja Steve Greedy letting a friend play alongside you in two-player local co-op.

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue will be available for download on PlayStation Network on September 21, 2010 for $14.99 and Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 22, 2010 for 1200 Microsoft Points.
