DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue Story Trailer Revealed

As you may be aware, another hilarious Deathspank is coming to XBLA later this month. This sequel, known as 'DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue,' looks to promise and ensue the humor and adventure it's predecessor accomplished. If you're like me, you are on the verge of an anxiety attack caused by the excitement and anticipation. Fortunately for you and I, this newly released trailer may help pass the time OR it might actually make everything worse… in a good way. Does that make sense?

Video Transcript:

"A master craftsman created six symbols of virtue and gave them to the purist of humans. Six noble thongs to stand against evil and remake the world as it once was. The Thong of Courage, Compassion, Peace, Generosity, Cuisine, and finally the most powerful thong of them all… the Thong of Justice. Together, these men and women were known as 'The Order of the Thong.' But the thongs corrupted those who wore them turning virtues in to vices. Turning the power of the thongs against us all."

DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is set to hit the Marketplace on September 22nd for 1200 MS Points.
