LittleBigPlanet 2 for PS3 Officially Announced for Winter 2010!

Eric Levine's Avatar + Posted by Eric Levine on May 10, 2010 // SCEA PR Manager

I’m pleased to share some exciting news involving our crafty, stitched-together character we all know and love – that’s right, I’m talking about the one and only Sackboy. Today, we are officially announcing that our cloth friend and all of his fellow Sack-people will be back for a completely new adventure in LittleBigPlanet 2, which will be released later this year for PS3!

LittleBigPlanet established the Play, Create, Share creative gaming genre and we can’t thank the fans and critics enough for the praise and support we’ve received. The game continues to grow and evolve, helped by countless players around the globe. In fact, the sharing nature of the game has become so embraced, it has attracted fans to publish more than two million levels to the PlayStation Network since the award-winning game was released!

To show you what you can expect from LittleBigPlanet 2, here’s an exclusive look at our spanking new trailer:

So, what can you expect from LittleBigPlanet 2?

First of all, it’s developed by Media Molecule, the extremely talented team that brought you the first game, so you know you’re going to get a special experience. LittleBigPlanet 2 will provide a whole new collection of tools and rules for fans to Play, Create, and Share, including an evolved approach to control and customization that has never been seen before.

LittleBigPlanet has always empowered users to create their own levels by utilizing the same tools as the development team. Now in LittleBigPlanet 2, we’ve upped the ante, giving players the ability to not only make better levels, but completely new games – think top-down racing games, multiplayer shooters, flying side-scrollers, RPGs, etc. The possibilities are really endless.

LBP2 will also have a loads of new features, including revamped graphics, a fresh storyline, added accessories and equipment for Sackboy, and much, much more – trust me I’m only scratching the surface here!

GOTY for SURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really loved the first Little Big Planet and this looks just amazing. Also thank you very much for getting to bring out levels from the original in.

I do have one question though.

Are all the fun costumes for our Sackboy going to be imported? Like there was a great selection of items for our sackboy to look unique so will all of those be in as well?

Can’t wait to play this game. I was totally blown away with that trailer. Good job M2! Also, will there be more cross-promotion with other games other than just MNR? And is there a beta planned for this as well?

So is it safe to assume that all of our DLC from LBP will work with LBP2?

Any chance that the controls will be tightened up a bit? I get that MM was going for somewhat a “floaty” experience, but honestly–there are any number of flash-web platformers out there that exhibit more precision than Sackboy does…

you cant just release this and leave us waiting until winter :(

Ok now this is epic. When you guys announced the 1st one I wasnt interested until you guys sent me the beta code. I tried and was hooked. Loved the first one. I cant wait for this one now.

My question is, will the DLC from the 1st one be able to come over to the 2nd one? I really hope it does. I spent so much money to buy up almost everything for the first one and would love to have it in the 2nd one.

I almost cried in excitement. This is great. Thanks for the memories and time to make even more.

Freaking awesome, can’t wait to see what people come up with.

@208, the reports on the GameInformer Issue said all DLC and user-created levels will make their way over to the second game.

Joy and Joy and some happiness and some Joy.

BLP is a wonderful little box of creativity – and who wouldn’t like to get a shiny new box of things to play with?

Thank-you for this wonderful news!

(will a PSP version follow? – I would love to be able to create little bits and pieces while on the “go” to load into my PS3 when I get home and build off of)

This year…
Modnation Racers (WAS on the top of my list)
Playstation Move!
And now LBP2 which incorporates the previous 2?!
Come one E3!! Come ON!

Hey, I recognize that song!

I’m glad that everything is transferring over from the first game, you would have made a sad puppy of the whole sequel indeed. Hopefully the frame rate has improved to keep track of people who flood their levels with bombs.

I hope you’ll have a beta for this, I’m sure plenty of people would be willing to help with improvements. I just hope you allow for hot-keying certain options to the controller buttons so that you can quickly access something like, say, the grid function. And of course, If you’d allow us to arrange menus a little better, based on our preferences, then getting to my favorite materials would be great (maybe take a tip from modnation and make a menu in create mode that compiles everything you put in the level, including stuff you just saved as an object for use later…

Chances of you listening… Small I suppose…

Thanks for taking the time to update LBP to even greater levels, I hope you have some introductory videos to the new features soon.

Will it be possible to use the eye camera and take picture of our own objects and integrate them into the game? I was hoping for this feature in the first one but it never happened. Other then that , great news.

Guys I have bought every single dlc for LBP, I need to know if all the money I spent will carry over to the next game, if so count with my day one purchase of LBP 2. Thanks!

oh yeah. i hope theres gonna be a demo :D

+ ski_bumm on May 10th, 2010 at 12:16 pm said:

It seems like the MM team was really inspired by some of the levels out there right now, given the game modes they’re letting us work with in the sequel: The side-scrolling shooters, the racing mode – brilliant, love that it’s top-down like the classics! This game is just packed with nostalgia and classic gameplay modes, but with its own awesome vibe.

I for one am psyched, MM totally deserves the right to do a sequel, esp. 2 years after the original. So much for people complaining that Sony didn’t have any ‘AAA’ titles for holiday 2010.

Everyone at Mm…You guys are amazing. LittleBigPlanet has been my favorite game ever since it first got released, and now you’re coming out with this. The game looks simply amazing, even in just a short preview of it. Words cannot describe how excited I am, and honestly, you guys are more than just game developers to me, you’re my friends. I’ll continue to buy every bit of DLC you throw my way, and LBP2 is a MUST for preordering.

+ DevilDawg90 on May 10th, 2010 at 12:32 pm said:

This is going to be amazing! I’m surprised that it’s coming this year, but I’m sure they’ve been working on it for a while.

All i have to say is:
F***ing AWESOME, and CONGLATURATIONS!~
yup, you guys at Mm are just that worth it.

That trailer all around gave me the same happy feeling I got when watching the trailers for the first one. Looks amazing can’t wait.


235

+ sonictails1189 on May 10th, 2010 at 12:34 pm said:

This looks amazing. I always wondered how MM would up the ante from the original, but this certainly looks to do just that.

I do have a question, though. Many of us have purchased some, or a lot, or even all, of the DLC for the first LBP. Will that content be compatible with LBP2 as well?


236

+ x_NiiGHTMARE_x on May 10th, 2010 at 12:34 pm said:

What about my DLC… will it transfer over? I dont want to loose it!!!!


237

+ TwinDad on May 10th, 2010 at 12:35 pm said:

So where are the Plushies from LBP 1. I’ve had an order in at Amazon Since January.


238

+ katsuo7171 on May 10th, 2010 at 12:36 pm said:

Freaking awesome!!!

However I hope the loading times won’t take as long as it does with the current LBP. Took me about 4 minutes to get past the first loading screen before ultimately quitting it. Game still hasn’t worked for me since.

Also, please fix the lag online, I once thought I was in first in the race level then I crossed the line and ended up in last. The only 2 problems I have with LBP are those. EVERYTHING else is perfect.

LBP2 AWESOME!! I Loved the first one.

+ the_miyamoto on May 10th, 2010 at 12:37 pm said:

WOW! Alright, that was one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen, bar none. I don’t even consider myself a hardcore LBP fan, and I’m simply floored right now! Kudos to Sony for buying MediaMolecule when they did, I have a feeling that will be one of the best thing for the company itself and for us, the fans.

I have to agree with some of the people wondering what you’ve got in store for E3….how could top this???


241

+ dodaniel on May 10th, 2010 at 12:42 pm said:

This looks so good, can’t wait for it.

There is one thing i wanna know though, i know the games is backwards compatible with all current user levels, but will it be compatible with all your LBP 1 DLC?


242

+ XxNoir– on May 10th, 2010 at 12:49 pm said:

This will go down as one of the most innovative and revolutionary games of this generation.I didn’t think the original could be built much upon but i was very wrong.The trailer blew me away & i will without a doubt be getting this on release day.

PS:The music was great.


243

+ APVangeliLHS on May 10th, 2010 at 12:51 pm said:

Can we have this for the PSP?

I am receiving a PSPgo I just bought online in a day or two… and I am getting LittleBigPlanet for it… It would be cool to have even more awesom later on. :D

I will also get WipEout Pulse and God of War: Chains of Olympus. :D

So excited to come back to the PlayStation family.

Hey would my LBP purchased items and costume all be available in LBP 2 just like levels?


245

+ mariosmaker on May 10th, 2010 at 12:53 pm said:

The amount of new stuff appears astounding. I hope all the costumes can be ported from 1 to 2 and is that an animated “skin” I see?
Definitely Pre-ordering as soon as I can.
That music is entrancing, hope it’s in the game.
