“The Lost Hobo King” is the Delightful Name of Stacking’s Upcoming DLC

Banking on the success and crazy fun of Stacking, Doublefine just released details on a new add-on coming in early April for the PSN/XBLA game. Titled The Lost Hobo King, the expansion continues Charlie Blackmore’s journey as he helps his hobo friend Levi with some family problems. Apparently his uncle Rufus is heir to the Hobo throne in the kingdom of Camelfoot, and Charlie and Levi must help him find pieces of a lost, fragmented crown and patch that up, in order to properly deem him as such.

As it’s a new area, expect new challenges, hi-jinks, achievements and trophies, and 15 new dolls to inhabit, with all new abilities. Stacking was one of the most uniquely entertaining games released this year, as detailed in our review by the incomparable John Colaw, so it’d be accurate to say that I’m seriously looking forward to this one.
