Welcome back to another episode of “Sack it to me.” We have a quickie today, but a good one…

LittleBigPlanet Content For April
It’s that time again! Here’s the scheduled release dates for additional LittleBigPlanet content for the rest of this month and the start of May.

Those of you who keep an eye on these updates will notice that the Heavenly Sword mini-pack has moved back by two weeks, but in its place is the extremely cool Rag Doll Kung Fu costume pack, which now launches on the same day that the game comes to the PlayStation Store.

The big news for April however is that the 1.12 “Cornish Yarg” update is being released, which provides some new features along with some fixes to problems reported by the community. Also included in this update is Creator Pack 1 that contains some very cool new devices, gizmos and tools to help you build your levels. Should the date for the release of the Cornish Yarg update change, we’ll inform you ahead of time, but right now it’s looking good to go for April 16th!

April 9th : Rag Doll Kung Fu Costumes : $5.99

LBP Rag Doll Kung Fu Costume

To coincide with the release of Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic on the PlayStation Store, we’ve put together some great costumes and themed stickers. Contains:

  • Hero costume: Hero hair, jacket, trousers, skin
  • Master Hip costume: Master Hip trousers, shirt, hair, skin
  • Master Sin costume: Master Sin hat, jacket, nails, trousers

  • 36 Rag Doll Kung Fu theme stickers

April 9th: Patapon Costume (Europe) : $1.99

LBP Character Patapon

Patapon 2 has hit the streets so it’s high time that Sackboy took up the challenge with this costume including a selection of weapon options. Contains:

  • Patapon costume: Patapon skin and head-dress, Patapon Axe, Patapon Bow, Patapon Sword


April 16th: Monkey King Costume: FREE

LBP Character Monkey

The costume competition winning design from Asia – the Monkey King. Contains:

  • Monkey King costume: Monkey King Crown, clothes, tail, staff, skin

April 16th (provisional): 1.12 “Cornish Yarg” update: FREE
This update addresses several outstanding issues with the game:

  • Improved decoration mode makes it easier to customise your Sackboy
  • Option to delete all (unhearted) community objects and photos
  • Option to select whether to automatically collect community prizes and photos
  • A number of improvements have been made to make profiles more robust and to recover from certain errors
  • We now support Japanese and Korean IME for text chat.
  • Emitter prediction has been improved (this should help fast-moving projectiles e.g. in MGS levels)
  • The player proximity switch now has a ‘require all’ option in it
  • An option has been added to cycle between various level information when viewing community levels on the earth
  • Various LittleBigStore improvements

April 23rd (provisional): Creator Pack 1: FREE

This is a lot of cool stuff but still not what I really wanted….which was a new level pack with new trophies….

Why does the European store already have the God of War level pack? I want that so bad! Bring it to the USA please!! I am not so intrigued to play LBP again just for some costumes or minor changes.. You have to offer a challenge to the people who already got all of the LBP trophies!!

Thanks

Great Job, can we please have a grand turismo level pack, I’m trying to make a GT level and it’s been failing miserably..

I can honestly say, I cannot wait to get my hands on “ALL” of these addons! I love the Rag Doll Kung Fu Costumes the most though. Also I would like to see more level packs. MM is are wonderful and creating inspiring levels.

finally bringing the global settings tool to LBP, when my friends found those in the MGS levels he had a hunch that was what they were about.

Sweet updates coming up!! Still looking for Sephiroth….something is telling me that this may come in a pack similar to the MSG. Anyway Good Job Mm!!

Thank you! Add as many disclaimers as you need to in case things change, but providing previews of content with DATES and PRICES makes this the best feature on the blog. :)

+ nuness1988 on April 8th, 2009 at 6:04 pm said:

I welcome anything free, but I am not interested in anything like this. Where are the level packs?

+ Delriach on April 8th, 2009 at 6:05 pm said:

Valkyria Chronicles sackboys. We require them. Now!

Anyway, great looking content coming for LBP. Can’t wait.

@4 I think the US Store does have the GoW pack.

+ Darnell0216 on April 8th, 2009 at 6:15 pm said:

This game’s DLC is one of very few worth breaking my wallet on DLC for. I love the continued support of the game. Hopefully we’ll get another Full-Featured Level Pack like the MGS one soon.

+ butterflybangs on April 8th, 2009 at 6:17 pm said:

I wish Mm would show us how “well” these costume packs are selling. I’d really like to see how many nuts are paying $2 to dress up in an online game.

+ juanpipe on April 8th, 2009 at 6:18 pm said:

What I really want and need, is to Media Molecule fix the network to fix network errors, the game lags horribly in some ocassions, to the point that I’m signed out of PSN. Aside from that, great support!!

+ penetration1 on April 8th, 2009 at 6:24 pm said:

what happened to all the free costumes?
It seems silly to me to download 15+ dollars for just costumes.

+ Thrasher20 on April 8th, 2009 at 6:26 pm said:

LOL the Viking costume. Heck yeah that’s tight!


22

+ Thwip on April 8th, 2009 at 6:29 pm said:

@17 – If you like, I can send you a couple of empty pop bottles so you can purchase a few costume packs for yourself.

Thanx for the update; looking forward to the DLC!

Glad to know about the Heavenly Sword DLC. Heavenly Sword needs to come back. It is a great IP with a rich backstory.

Sweet… can’t wait for that creator pack!


28

+ Blkant on April 8th, 2009 at 6:53 pm said:

+1 for the creator pack, however, not only is it very bare, but seriously, this whole costume thing is getting old now. Where is some actual game changing content? You guys said this game was lead by the community, yet all you do is sell costumes for profit. I suppose thats what was meant by the disc is only the beginning, your true profit is from the costumes. Profit, your one and only true intentions.

+ Midgetguy on April 8th, 2009 at 6:56 pm said:

I’m loving the free stuff! And the heavenly sword stickers make me smile!

Honestly, Heavenly Sword is a BEAUTIFUL game! The motion-capture and voice acting is immaculate and VERY memorable! Andy Serkis’ preformance is my favorite video game character preformance I’ve EVER SEEN! Period.

+ Atomika14 on April 8th, 2009 at 7:03 pm said:

You guys are the best! I can’t wait for the mythology packs!

34

+ Jenovah on April 8th, 2009 at 7:10 pm said:

Nice! Hopefully we’ll get more level packs a la Metal Gear.


35

+ WindedHero on April 8th, 2009 at 7:13 pm said:

Maybe we’ll actually care about Heavenly Sword when we get a trophy patch.

+ zaltar on April 8th, 2009 at 7:30 pm said:

Wow, I love the Norse pack! Just imagine Sackboy running around with a little hammer! :P

BTW, if anyone is interested, I just made a new level! Search WoAH (short for “World of Ancient Heroes”)and try it out as I sadly have gotten very few plays. :(

Thanks!

Ugh. I paid like, 2.99 for the Killzone costume pack. Now, I may buy another costume pack some time in the future (I can’t say anything for certain, especially if I have a measly 3$ in my PSN “wallet), but I was really underwhelmed. I don’t know what the hell I expected it to feel like, obviously I was a bit delusional – but costume packs are a damn waste. Especially for the price they sell them at, and for too few costumes. Yuk…

In any case… Media Molecule, please release a new levels-pack. Ya’ll made some bomb-ass levels.

Hey! What if we had costumes for Infamous?! Who’s with me? Costumes from infamous for LBP, with a whole bunch of levels and the ability to shoot lightning from your sackboy’s fingers!! That’d be awesome!! And Cornish yarg is out soon!!! Yippe Kai yay mother F’er!! sorry for the language. that creator pack is awesome also. LBP FTW!!

+ wu-stix on April 8th, 2009 at 7:48 pm said:

The blog should be changed to the playstation [DELETED]. That is all people do in the comments. but seriously if you are going to complain at least keep it on topic.

On topic I think MM have taken the crown from critereon with best developer support. Keep up the good work, guys. [DELETED].

+ nokedimyo on April 8th, 2009 at 7:52 pm said:

For those of us who already have the Nariko costume, will there be a way for us to just get the Kai costume + stickers? Otherwise it would seem like we are paying for content we already have. . .

+ Tech-Enix on April 8th, 2009 at 7:59 pm said:

I would love to get my hands on the one in all black with the black hair, Pretty sweet new costumes!
