EA and developer Hothead Games announced today that they will bring DeathSpank to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this year. Developed under the vision of The Secret of Monkey Island creator and industry icon Ron Gilbert, DeathSpank blends a story filled with Gilbert’s unique humor and wit with classic and addictive action RPG gameplay.
