LittleBigPlanet 3 Coming to PS4 This November

Pete Smith's Avatar + Posted by Pete Smith on Jun 09, 2014 // Executive Producer

Greetings everyone! After keeping our lips sealed for such a long time I’m pleased to finally be able to tell you what we’ve been up to in the imaginative world of LittleBigPlanet. Today we announced that LittleBigPlanet 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 this November!

Sackboy is back and for the first time ever joined by three new friends – OddSock, Swoop, and Toggle. Each one of these new playable characters has unique abilities, which brings new dynamic gameplay and expands the inventive possibilities in Create mode.

LBP3-E3screen016

These three all-new hand-stitched heroes will completely change the way you play…

  • Bound up and over walls as the quick and agile OddSock!
  • Glide through the skies as the majestic Swoop!
  • Transform Toggle between Big Toggle, a heavy strongman and Little Toggle, a light speedster who can walk across water!

All the new characters are, like Sackboy, fully customizable and there will be plenty of quirky new costumes to collect in the game so you can express your own individuality.

Speaking of Sackboy – what about him? Well, our favorite knitted knight has been equipped with an all-new climbing ability and loads of brand-new power-ups including the amazing Pumpinator!

You’ll need the power of all four of these heroes as you explore all corners of the Imagisphere, meet the inhabitants of the mysterious planet Bunkum and face the nefarious Newton as he attempts to destroy a world filled with creativity.

And there is a sack-ton more; we’ve added even more features and are excited to tell you all about them in the months to come. As a kick off, we’ve added creative layers for increased depth in the game world so Sackboy and friends can now jump in and out of the screen right before your eyes, climb up stairs, skate down slides and zip-line on a puffy sponge! Getting to see some of the new gameplay in action is the best way to show you what’s new, so we’re excited to share with you this exclusive trailer we made to celebrate the announcement of LittleBigPlanet 3:

We hope this gives you an idea of the endless surprises that await you LittleBigPlanet 3. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also made the millions of inventive levels generated within the LittleBigPlanet community so far to all work on PlayStation 4. There’s over 8.5 million, which you can enjoy from Day 1 and they all look better than ever on PS4.

And if you’re feeling inspired, flex your creative muscles with a whole bunch of new tools and tweaks which will allow the creators among you to create fresh experiences for the rest of the community to enjoy.

LBP3 is an excellent showcase for PS4, featuring innovative support for the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller, stunning 1080p graphics and the ability to broadcast creations and gameplay clips with a touch of the SHARE button.

This is just a glimpse at some of the surprising new things in LittleBigPlanet 3. We can’t wait to tell you more later!

FIRST..time I played LBP was just as fun as the THOUSANDTH time I played it. User Created levels are a beautiful thing. Can’t wait to play it, nephews love LBP and I love some platforming too. Nice surprise SONY.

A great game.
The fact you let 2 and Kart Racing go Instant Game Colection was really nice.

It allows my kids to play.

Have both portable versions which make the Vita worth having.

Although less advertisement about paid for DLC would be nice, and possibly add a package deal/sale.

Keep these more for kids, and you have my full support.
(Maybe a few side games or co-op levels for demo purposes)

Oh and I do have to mention one more thing…the ONLY thing I never liked about LBP was the “floaty” jumping mechanics..even an experienced gamer can have a lot of problems with the jumping mechanics. I hope you guys work to tune these and make them more solid. It’s fine to be floaty but there’s just a bit too much weight to the jumps..too many jumps end up short. If it’s going to be floaty I think the characters should feel lighter and able to jump further. But I would prefer more solidity to the jumping similar to rayman or mario.

Tuning this would help the game and fun factor immensely, especially for those levels that are all about testing your jumping skills. Maybe have an option for “traditional” LBP jumping mechanics and some tuned new ones? Just in case there are people out there who think the jumping mechanics are fine how they are and wouldn’t like the change..but I have a feeling many would.

I hope it’s a lot easier to make music in LBP3. How about if we have actual sheet music we can make it that way? And a lot more instruments. I’ve never been able to figure out the music part of LBP and LBP2.

hope a PS Vita version is coming out.

Vita isn’t getting this.. :(
It’s not powerful enough to deliver a game of this magnitude.

Wow! I can’t believe this is actually happening! I’ve been speculating whether Sony would consider making this game or not, and now I can see from the video that it’s going to be more than I, if not, any LittleBigPlanet fan has expected! I can’t wait to play as Toggle, Oddsock, and Swoop. Who knows how Sackboy will summon these new characters (depending if Sackboy will summon them)? Also, this new depth mechanic looks totally epic. And the fact that you can use the Corner Editor in Play Mode left me stunned with surprise. Overall, I can’t wait to play, create, and share in completely and entirely new and extremely fun way. I am so getting on its release date.

The best game of Sony’s conference!!!! I’ve never owned a title in the series, but it looks great!

@11
Off topic- there were actually several games announced. Nothing major- yet- but PSNOW sounds like a big deal.
You can play streaming games on your PSVita. Huge f-ing deal!

I really hope those sidekicks are optional, and you’ll be able to play without ever seeing them.

It’s not that I have anything against them exactly, but Sackboy could already fly when you gave him a jetpack. There were other items for moving and breaking things. Wall jump could have been implemented on him fine.

As they are now, they feel pointless. Sackboy was always a one man cast in how you could customize him and all. With items and pickups, he could be whatever you needed to be. Splitting those things up into multiple characters means now he can’t.

That seems like everything the prior games weren’t.

Oh, and I loved how the presenter didn’t even mention everything LBPV has added. It was never going to be taken seriously by you guys, was it?

I’m still surprised LBP3 wasn’t PS4/V cross-play. Shocked, really. The touch issue is no longer an issue.

Though the Superhero pack probably makes MM’s real feelings for the Vita evident enough – that is to say, they have none.

Thanks guys.

Oh, and please ignore any complaints about the jumping. That’s one of LBP’s strong points.

Omg I’m so excited to work with all of those extra layers!


26

+ CatatonicAlex on June 9th, 2014 at 9:45 pm said:

This game is being made by SumoDigital not by MM.

The SIDEKICKS will most likely NOT be optional in SOME levels. Kind of like Murphy in Rayman Legends.

YES!!! And I thought Sony had given up on LBP.

It looks amazing! I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

+ PolarbearMama on June 9th, 2014 at 10:42 pm said:

So, if you play like 3 people at the same console, Does that mean there will be one Sackboy and two other of those other or can i choose that everyone can be sackboy?

Sony tried but tried really hard and here it is….LBP is spoiled FOREVER….thats what you get from milking a game and plus giving it to another devs…..ha lemme guess:

You tried to force Mm to do this but they refused….so you kept on but it didn’t worked like it had worked before when you forced them to make LBP 2 right?….haha Mm knows a new game will spoil the series and I bet they will be sad to see this happening with their game…I’m sad myself because LBP is one of the greatest franchises ever created.

Sony you did a big,a giant,a huge **** this time.

This game wouldn’t be here without Media Molecule’s blessing. This was the biggest surprise of the night for me and I am still overjoyed! I cannot wait to get my hands on this as soon as possible. Hoping for a beta, but if not….November can’t come soon enough!

+ DanteAMT on June 10th, 2014 at 2:22 am said:

Why does the PSN store shows ” Released Mar 31, 2015″. I was just going to pre-order it, now i wonder if i should wait a little to see if its really a November 2014 title or March 31 2015 title.

Already pre-ordered Infamous First Light, this is going to be my second pre-order from the E3 pre-order game list.

Damn i can’t keep up with my game collection and if Sony you continue with all that greatness, I just don’t know where i will get the time i need to play all that awesome games.

I screamed my head off with joy when LBP came on the stream last night. Dream come true! Thank you PlayStation, and a nod to Mm Studios for Sackboy’s beginning that will continue on PS4!

It is great!
But where is LBP Hub?


37

+ detictiveconan on June 10th, 2014 at 6:10 am said:

The new characters look ugly and bland.I know you’re planning on users painting and dressing the up but when you put them next to the excellently designed Sackboy they look like prototype models.
The animation on the new characters and Sackboy’s new climb move look really glitchy and cheap,like something that would be hacked in by the community.
Actually everything new in the game has that feeling to it, Like it all could have just been made the community.I really hope you can tighten things up by release time.

I’m super excited for LBP3!!!
But 2 questions:
-Are we able to choose between Sackboy,Odd Sock, Toggle, and Swoop?
-Can you choose a character more than one at a time when you’re playing Co-op?(Example: Two Sackboys in the same game.)
Please reply. ^.^

Is LBP Hub still coming?


42

+ BadCop1979 on June 10th, 2014 at 5:54 pm said:

I get the feeling that maybe LBP Hub might be a possible bridger between LBP 3 AND THE PS3 maybe. I do agree not hearing about it kinda makes me sad but that said without hearing it being canceled I’d assume it’s still on and still has a major role.

@6, Einhander138, you are the most annoying person now on the ps blog. thanks for your constant negativity, you must be a lot of fun to hang out with.. hahaha

im glad lbp is getting a new full version. looks awesome. are there still plans to release the free to play version on PS4, LittleBigPlanet Hub?

glad to see lbp3 is announced for ps4. I hope there is a collectors edition contains all the preorder dlc’s + extra ce only dlc like we got with lbp2 ce that was the main reason i purchased the collectors edition of lbp2.

+ Ryusennin on June 11th, 2014 at 9:24 am said:

I understand that Sony was pushing the PS4 forward on the E3 stage, but you could have been honest in this blog post and announce that LBP3 will (obviously) also be available on PS3.

Of course the question is: cross buy or not?

Does anyone know if LBP 1&2 DLC carry over to LBP3? I know they were able to for the vita version and ps3, but then again the vita was built in a way that cross integration would indeed be there. PS4 is a standalone console with its own features that can allow the VITA to integrate with it (I.E. Cross Gameplay). Sumo Digital has said in all their interviews that being able to carry over levels to LBP3 was a huge challenge. This makes me worry because if that was a challenge and they haven’t mentioned the DLC from previous games at all, does this mean the DLC won’t be able to carry over? In the trailer you see the infamous second son costume on a sackboy, but Sumo Digital has created all the DLC for all LBP games so they could have easily created a ps4 version of the costume when they created it for the ps3. Only question is, will they have to recreate all the previous DLC and we have to buy them again, or will they be able to carry it all over so we don’t pay again?
