TGS 08: Sackboy Solid Snake and Sephiroth to join LittleBigPlanet

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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!


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.

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.

Ha ha ha! I love it!

@Yawn_monkeyboy: Yeah since most of us are not insane enough to pre-order multiple copies to get all the characters we can only hope that some year they will be available on PSN at least for purchase.

So I was stuck in traffic (normal in Los Angeles) and I look up at see Sackboy doing his victory pose. It’s the first time I’ve seen a billboard for LBP. It made me smile. I know it’s only a couple of weeks but I can’t wait.

Bioshock, Far Cry 2, Eternal Sonata, and LittleBigPlanet all coming out on the 21st. I’m gonna be broke by the end of this month. The Sephiroth Costume looks awesome by the way.

Guess i’ll comment on the delay here – disappointed really as for any other religion there would never ever have been a delay and with MM did to get a patch ready right away was all that was needed.
