TGS 08: Sackboy Solid Snake and Sephiroth to join LittleBigPlanet

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Oct 08, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Minutes ago on the Tokyo Game Show show floor, the Kratos and Nariko Sackboys/girls made a couple of new friends. Welcome Sackboy Solid Snake and Sackboy Sephiroth!

0415

I caught up to Media Molecule’s Alex Evans minutes before the announcement was made, and he talked about this dream collaboration:

It all started with the Helghast thing. It was really funny because we were aware of a lot of possibilities of who we could work with. I remember the first time that Final Fantasy was mentioned, and there was a bet over whether it would be happened since it’s such a precious franchise.

And with Metal Gear, I bought my PS1 for Metal Gear Solid, and I didn’t have a memory card – so I left the game on when I went to work and came home and played some more.

To be involved with MGS is… slightly bizarre. When we were looking at what options as a studio we’d have to work with, they were under the “yeah, right!” category of games.

LittleBigPlanet
and Sackboy have a strong identity and flavor. So then you try to find the translation to Metal Gear and Sephiroth, and the guys that made the characters really brought the flavors of LittleBigPlanet and Metal Gear together and kept the flavor of both of them

[On Final Fantasy collaboration:] It’s a whole universe, and they’ve built up this ethos. And we’re honored to be let into that universe.

We’l have more details on LittleBigPlanet’s newest residents soon. In the meantime, click here for more hi-res pics.

To see those two iconic characters reimagined for LBP is ridiculously amazing :) let’s hope they’re available on the final version!

and, just as a joke, is this image of Sephiroth be the closest thing we’ll get to a Final Fantasy VII for the PS3?! Say it isn’t so! ^_^

Nice!! You should only allow PSN users level 5 or higher to download these guys. That’ll shut the trophy haters up. Oct. 21 is going to really kill my wallet with 5 must have PS3 titles coming out. Good Job!

Whoa, can’t believe this actually made me feel a bit better! Go sackboys and sackgirls!

But I’m still bitter about the report of Tekken 6 going multiplatform — er.. don’t mind me.

Go sackpeoples!!

Please excuse me while I pick my jaw up off of the floor. I must have those!

+ Jeigh on October 8th, 2008 at 11:49 pm said:

I don’t… understand… Did I miss it or was it just not said: are these just more pre-order bonuses or are the DLC or are we getting them with the game…? Please, please, PLEASE say it’s the last one. :D

Either way, that’s frickin’ cool. Annoying about Tekken 6, but hardly an issue considering that pretty much EVERYONE saw it coming, but NO ONE saw this coming. I’m going to be the fricking flame-walker of LittleBigPlanet. Bring on the burning village! :D

Haha, I KNEW people would be raving for Cloud if Sephiroth got in LBP. :P

@12,
Exclusivity on gaining trophies isn’t a bad idea- I’m at Level 6 w/ 169 trophies myself…

They all look good, lets just hope they are in the game and not as preorder materials.

Seriously. You guys should get Nintendo to Jump on.

Maybe not the whole Nintendo cast… but maybe Mario & Luigi?

+ Yawn_monkeyboy on October 9th, 2008 at 12:34 am said:

Great news!

I’m just concerned about one thing; The Kratos and Nariko costumes are available in a lot of countries with either pre-order or magazine purchase. But how does it work for us in the countries that aren’t able to get these? I tried buying a UK Magazine here in Sweden just to get the Kratos code, but unforturnatley it’s not possible to obtain outside of the UK. So how are we, forgoten souls, able to get our hands on those costumes? I’d really like an answere for this. Thanks.
