LittleBigPlanet 2 for PS3 Officially Announced for Winter 2010!

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!

Add Your Own

That was a great trailer, looks like it will be new and fun. With all the new features I hope it doesn’t make the level creation even harder. Easier level creation would be ideal.

Wow, this looks great. I loved the first one and play it often. Then new features will be very welcomed. I hope that DLC will translate from the first game to the second as well.

Haha, I wouldn’t even bother with the game if it wasn’t made by Media Molecule.

I don’t understand. Winter 2010 ended on March 21, 2010.
Winter 2011 starts on December 22, 2010.

When is this game coming out? ;)

I sure hope it is coming out in time for my birthday in the Fall of 2010, which is when my wife gave me LBP when it came out.

Best Monday ever? I think so

tlwizard81 said:

May 10th, 8:19 am

Looks pretty awesome.

Are we going to be able to import the levels and costume kits from the original LBP so that we don’t have to swap discs or something to keep using our same character?

tlwizard81 said:

May 10th, 8:19 am

And I meant my GOTY disc.

Can’t wait!

depward said:

May 10th, 8:21 am

LBP was my game of this generation. That being said, this trailer greatly excites me. You guys (and gals) rock!!

MarinoBrea said:

May 10th, 8:22 am

Media Molecule is out of this universe, so they created their own for us to play and share. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

May 10th, 8:24 am

Thank you flying spaghetti monster

Big_Hawk97 said:

May 10th, 8:24 am

Yep kinda skeptical on that release date. Seems too good to be true. All the same… SOLD!

chiffmonkey said:

May 10th, 8:25 am

Does owning the original have benefits if you get LBP2?

Like certain things only available in LBP1 (the story mode rewards and dlc stuff)

KazeEternal said:

May 10th, 8:26 am

hmm no 3D Platforming?

chiffmonkey said:

May 10th, 8:26 am

hanyPS said:

MoneyMaker110 said:

May 10th, 8:29 am

love it! for those on the ps3 browser


May 10th, 8:30 am

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best teaser for a game EVER!!!!!!!!! SOLD!!!!!! When can I pre-order??

Curtisio said:

May 10th, 8:30 am

All I can say is OMG. This is the world’s best game and now it’s getting twice as better!

Question: How am I going to wait that long for this release?

DeadCell34 said:

May 10th, 8:33 am

WOW, this is gonna be amazing. I was skeptical about what they said about being able to build racing games and such but I see it was true! Day one for sure.

Oh, and for the whiners who are pissed at Sony for supposedly “forcing Media Molecule to make LBP2”, get your facts straight. Look how much they’ve done! And the game is gonna be ready by the end of the year. Sony just bought MM a few months ago. THEREFORE, MM was already working on this before Sony ever got them, so they weren’t forced to do anything.

MM just told a little fib when they were asked about a sequel last year. I mean, it may have been early in development and they weren’t ready to make it known yet, DUH.


May 10th, 8:34 am

….BTW the music in this trailer BETTER be in the game!! It is awesome!!!!!!

WakizashiM said:

May 10th, 8:35 am

Question: if I have the Platinum trophy in the original LBP, will I get some kind of reward? That would be neat.

TH3_Hammer_29 said:

“….BTW the music in this trailer BETTER be in the game!! It is awesome!!!!!!”

After showing the trailer to my 5-year old son, I had to download the song from iTunes to put on his DS.

Scodo_Thope said:

Hope this one doesn’t get recalled because of overly PC bull crap like LBP1. What a huge miss for the IP entry!

I will not be anticipating this one the same as I did the first.

PC (Political Correctness) killed the IP.

Keeng said:

May 10th, 8:40 am

How is this still considered a console war?! Sony is overkilling the competition. I’m definitely getting this, day one.

JBracin70 said:

May 10th, 8:40 am

Ok, Media Molecule, you guys are right up there with Naughty Dog. I pondered the thought of a LBP2, and came up with nothing that really could just be added as DLC. You guys take me from skeptical to guaranteed buy with this one announcement/trailer. <3 LBP!

Rhino136 said:

May 10th, 8:41 am

I can’t believe that LBP would become obsolete so quickly but damn that trailer looks awesome.

Guts05 said:

May 10th, 8:41 am

Day 1 for sure :3

MaDogNik96 said:

May 10th, 8:41 am

YAY!!! Great way to start the week! This looks so cool. Those digital puppet things are going to be awesome. And flying creatures too… THAT YOU CAN RIDE!! AND, on top of this, you can make different types of games (racing, puzzles, RPG, shooters). You are really outdoing yourselves Mm. Thank You! I’m going to agree with everyone else and say GoTY 2010.

Majin47 said:

May 10th, 8:43 am

Don’t forget to put a Youtube viewer option in the game to watch machinmas.

kivi95 said:

May 10th, 8:45 am

Great that all community levels in LPB will be playable in LBP2.

Kane22_ said:

May 10th, 8:47 am

GLiTcH2 said:

May 10th, 8:52 am

OMG this is awesome, I can’t wait!!!!!!!! I hope there is a Beta test for this one, I beta tested the first one before it came out which was a lot of fun so I will cross my fingers for a beta test on this one too.
