Sackboy @ Comic-Con: A MARVEL-ous announcement!!!

Mark Valledor's Avatar Posted by on Jul 27, 2009 // Marketing Manager, SCEA

Its official, the Comic-Con hangover is in full effect. The past 5 days was a rush of comic culture, movie panels, toys, cosplay and of course, video games – I still can’t believe how many people were at Wednesday Nights “Preview Night.” The crowds on hand were tremendous and want to thank everyone who came down to check out the PlayStation booth and visit our LittleBigPlanet staff. You guys had lots of great ideas, LittleBigStories, and we promise there will be some cool new merchandise in the VERY near future…

And in case you missed it, yesterday, we we’re pleased to announce a LittleBigPartnership with our amazing friends at Marvel. Check out the pic below from the Marvel Video Games panel and a sneak peek of a few DLC costumes in the works.

Here’s the official release for more detail:

Iron Man, Wolverine and Captain America Invade LittleBigPlanet; Marvel Partnership Announced at Comic-Con.

July 27 – Sony Computer Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment officially announced that they will be collaborating to create original LittleBigPlanet content based on the Marvel Universe. The news was revealed yesterday at Comic-Con International in San Diego during Marvel’s panel discussion highlighting the next generation of Marvel video games. To help illustrate what might be in store for fans, concept art of possible costumes were shown incorporating Iron Man, Wolverine and Captain America, however other characters will be considered.

With “Play, Create and Share”, LittleBigPlanet has established the Creative Gaming genre and the game continues to grow and evolve, helped by partnerships with marquee brands such as Disney and now Marvel. The customizable nature of the unique PlayStation title allows players to alter characters and build entirely new objects and levels; then share and play them online as part of the LittleBigPlanet community. In fact, the sharing nature of the game has become so embraced, it has attracted fans to publish more than one million levels to the PlayStation Network since the award-winning game launched last October. Put another way, one new level has been published roughly every 21 seconds since LittleBigPlanet hit shelves.

More levels!


+ ProSoldier14 on July 27th, 2009 at 8:03 am said:

The two things Im most excited about in LBP is Marvel and Ratchet & Clank.


+ JuniorPS on July 27th, 2009 at 8:08 am said:

Great news. I’m sure Spider-Man is in the works. Hope they do a special level to play with them, like the MGS one.

BTW, what happened to the Disney and FFVII LBP content? Hope they’re not cancelled…

+ SpiritThief on July 27th, 2009 at 8:11 am said:

Ok partners make some levels to go along with those.


+ Tikicobra on July 27th, 2009 at 8:18 am said:

How about a level pack?


+ EyeAmmMcLovin on July 27th, 2009 at 8:24 am said:

I just want my Ratchet costume already…I know it’s coming, I just don’t like having to wait until the game is released. All complaints aside though, thank you for all the continued DLC for LBP! : )

+ Link01 on July 27th, 2009 at 8:34 am said:

I just wish Media Molecule would release levels with these costumes, then I’d buy in an instant


+ LordRaoh on July 27th, 2009 at 8:38 am said:

That is awesome news.


+ SpyDudeFX on July 27th, 2009 at 8:39 am said:

Eh, more costumes?? That’s all this game is about, is costumes. Yes they are cool but announce levels already.


+ HatmanTc on July 27th, 2009 at 8:40 am said:

theres got to be a Spidey one in the works or i am not buying them.

MM please give us some new stages. we love what you guys do. please reward us.

@9 that doesnt sound right. sounds like one of those spoof adult film titles


+ SPARDA on July 27th, 2009 at 8:41 am said:

This is very cool, but we need some levels to go with these costumes just like the Metal Gear pack.


+ Thwip on July 27th, 2009 at 8:42 am said:

Please have a Spider-man costume…please!


+ Ausohoj on July 27th, 2009 at 8:45 am said:


The disney content was just announced man! Be patient! But they said the disney content would launch around fall. as for the FFVII content? People just want to know if it’s going to be released at this point.


+ Dardantuan on July 27th, 2009 at 8:46 am said:

Costumes… More costumes. Amazing people are still able to get excited about more LBP costume announcements. I wish I was so easily amused.


+ TwinDad on July 27th, 2009 at 8:47 am said:

Hmmm. Looks great. Just costumes :(


+ joseph2411 on July 27th, 2009 at 8:48 am said:

No Spiderman costume? That can’t be!!
Also will it have some sort of level packs or will it only be costumes? I know LBP is all about the users creativity in levels but maybe you could share with us your creativity with Marvel levels, I know it would be awesome! :D


+ RuthlessEd on July 27th, 2009 at 8:51 am said:

Valueless micro-transactions FTW!


+ AbYsS_WaRlOrD on July 27th, 2009 at 8:52 am said:

i like wolverine the best :)


+ Vengeful-Chaos on July 27th, 2009 at 8:52 am said:

I really want a physical wolverine sackboy, please make it happen.


+ Jisatsu_Kiddo on July 27th, 2009 at 8:54 am said:

    Yeah, that\’s what they gave us to go with…


+ drdre74 on July 27th, 2009 at 8:56 am said:

Good that they are adding this. I pitched this idea on this blog before the Ironman movie came out and got a reply for it. Glad its coming to the game but just like everybody else there has to be some pre built levels like the metal gear DLC.


+ Fnook on July 27th, 2009 at 8:56 am said:

So purchasing these! ^_^ I luvs me LBP costumes..


+ VWXYZadam on July 27th, 2009 at 8:57 am said:

I’ve bought enough costumes, I’m kinda of an Iron man fan, but this is not enough to make me buy it.

Levels, like the Metal Gear, thats what I’m going to pay for! And I will not believe metal Gear is the only level pack coming for LBP


+ jayrockslife on July 27th, 2009 at 9:01 am said:

This is cool.
Hopefully they make some new levels to go with the characters. I loved the MGS levels and they inspired some great user created levels.


+ Jim777 on July 27th, 2009 at 9:03 am said:

SWEET i cant wait ^_^ also vid does not work at all


+ acmilanboy on July 27th, 2009 at 9:07 am said:

I would definitely purchase a pack of all marvel super heroes, or just most famous ones.


+ THE_LIGHT_05 on July 27th, 2009 at 9:08 am said:

Iron Man Looks AWESOME!! can he do anything special?


+ GoldenGotGame on July 27th, 2009 at 9:08 am said:

Those are cool, especially Wolverine, but Spidey must be made available. Not only is he my favorite, he’s the most popular character in the Marvel universe. The first week LBP was released I was begging for a Spidey Sackboy.


+ Ruffday on July 27th, 2009 at 9:08 am said:

What was that update last week?


+ lowhonor on July 27th, 2009 at 9:10 am said:

level packs. who cares about costumes. how many times does this need to be said?


+ acmilanboy on July 27th, 2009 at 9:15 am said:

Thats not all from LBP and super heroes goes:


+ xaos on July 27th, 2009 at 9:22 am said:

As a massive Marvel nerd, this pleases me greatly. Sacktain America is the best of the bunch, IMO, but I hope more Marvel cuteness will be coming our way soon


+ DeathGazer on July 27th, 2009 at 9:24 am said:

We have enough costumes, we need more levels.

I didn’t buy LBP to download over-priced costumes every damn week.


+ jipmg on July 27th, 2009 at 9:25 am said:


it says DISNEY there as well?


I HOPE MEDIA MOLECULE IS READING THIS, it would be so amazing if we had level packs(not stickers actual levels) for disney worlds, and marvel worlds..

Just amazing, Im buying it day one, especially if there is a true venom costume


+ TamarindLAZ on July 27th, 2009 at 9:38 am said:

Hopefully MM is reading this:

You know these costumes are cool but honestly MM you got other things to adress too.

How hard is it to fix the pop it, fix the 0’s on your profile about level information, and maybe add some more level creation tools?


+ EddyxMob on July 27th, 2009 at 9:38 am said:

Captain America Woot Woot


+ littlebabyangel on July 27th, 2009 at 9:47 am said:

These are mad nice they should definitely do more


+ TheGuardianFID on July 27th, 2009 at 9:47 am said:

Sweet, I’m a big marvel fan, hopefully we get ol Web-Head in the future!!! :D


+ wocyob on July 27th, 2009 at 9:54 am said:

i will not buy this unless it has my fav super hero….SPIDERMAN!!!!
im guessing it will be since he is a big huge part of marvels success but please say he is

+ Maakasukage on July 27th, 2009 at 9:57 am said:

+ BlooodyCow on July 27th, 2009 at 10:03 am said:

Where the hell is my Final Fantasy VII sackboys? It is going to be almost a year since they was announce and nothing yet.


+ joostin on July 27th, 2009 at 10:03 am said:

We need Apocalypse as a Sackboy or Sentinels.


+ samuraidino on July 27th, 2009 at 10:03 am said:

Needs more Deadpool


+ zombie9 on July 27th, 2009 at 10:06 am said:

I ask for this 7 months ago!! And I wish they could do this for HOME. But that will be another $5. (right)


+ BlooodyCow on July 27th, 2009 at 10:07 am said:

Lame choices for me personally

Where is:
War Machine
Ghost Rider
Silver Surfer


+ sam_i_jam on July 27th, 2009 at 10:09 am said:

You know, I assume these costume DLCs are bringing in some nice money over to Sony/Mm and that’s great.

But, it’s going to take level packs to get me interested in purchasing new content. I’m having plenty of fun with existing costumes and online levels to play with friends.
