LittleBigPlanet Community Update

GI-MUNGOUS update for you guys today…so lets get right to it.

LBP What's New

Alex Evans REMIX’d

A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users. And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade. From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of “Massive Damage” / “Giant Crabs”. Payback time…

New on the PlayStation Store

YES!!!!!! MARVEL COSTUMES!!!!!! I’ve been waiting forever and forever for this ever since it was announced when? Two years ago? By the looks of the amount of characters, though, the wait was well worth it. Consider my money yours until these costumes quit coming out, Sony! ;)

    Glad you like. It was actually only a year since we announced w/ Marvel, but you had me second guessing for a quick sec.

June 25th, 2:07 pm

Hey Mark! Josh here–it was awesome to meet ya at E3! Cool that Game Changers Kids got extended over the summer—us Game Changers Adults are preparing to do our required levels (we start sometime between July 1st and December 1st)—-PLEASE if you guys have any pull in it try to get Sony to give LBP2 to the libraries and such so we can do our levels in LBP2—I can’t overstate how much I’d love to do my levels in LBP2 ;-)

When I do finally get LBP2 I know what my first ride-oriented task will be: doing a LBP version of Six Flags Magic Mountain’s X2 ride complete with onboard audio and effects ;-) (

Thank you so much for joining forces w/ Marvel! I would love some PSN Avatars of these Marvel characters as well!

Thank you so much!

Tr3p1dat10n said:

June 25th, 2:54 pm

Are costumes going to be backwards compatible from LBP1 to LBP2? Like, can I use my kratos costume I got for preordering LBP1 in LBP2?

    Mark Valledor's Avatar

    Mark Valledor said:

    June 25th, 3:13 pm

    Of course – buy with confidence my friend. All DLC bought on the PS Store will be backwards compatible for LBP2.

dragonmagician said:

June 25th, 3:32 pm

Three questions:
1. If I buy them now, I can play these Marvel levels in LBP2 as well, right?
2. Any plan to extend the Marvel partnership to LBP2, so you can make Marvel levels with the new tools?
3. Can you make MLB/NBA sackboy avatars as well?


sfgdfds said:

June 25th, 3:33 pm

oh also.. disney princesses. happy to see Marvel, but was also wondering if they still will be coming? (and when?)


FE_RR said:

SoraSackboy said:

June 25th, 3:38 pm

Awsome Marvel costumes I’m a big comic reader (got one today) and Ive been waiting anxiously to get the marvel costumes. However I’m sad to see no Deadpool. Any hopes of him getting a costume later or stickers in a pack with with his logo.

FE_RR said:

June 25th, 3:45 pm

BOUGHT!!!! i want that sackboy too!!!

Jisatsu_Kiddo said:

June 25th, 3:50 pm

no remy, how disappointing

munkyjump said:

June 25th, 3:55 pm

with LBP2 coming out so soon, it almost seems pointless to be buying additional content for LBP right now, unless it’s all transferable. but yes, there being marvel characters is great, though my three favorite characters (Deadpool, Gambit, Nightcrawler) weren’t included.

wolfzero1 said:

June 25th, 3:58 pm

going to have to add some funds to my wallet,that Marvel pack is a definite purchase

this is off topic but does anyone know why the ModNation trophies don’t show up on I’ve synced them but they don’t show up

MercenaryR56 said:

June 25th, 4:03 pm

Getting them Day One. Will all the costumes that you unlock from Single-Player in LBP 1 transfer over to LBP 2? Or just the DLC?

    Mark Valledor's Avatar

    Mark Valledor said:

    June 25th, 5:13 pm

    Let me check. I *think* your LBP1 save will be transferable. Maybe a question for an upcoming FAQ. Stay tuned.

Fluidshine said:

June 25th, 4:08 pm

July 7th is a wednesday….I thought PSN store updates are on Tuesdays…BUT ANYWAYS….I can’t wait for the Marvel costumes and Levels!!!!!

Livebetes said:

June 25th, 4:35 pm

So where is the Giant Enemy Crab/Massive Damage track? I was actually looking forward to hearing that one.

Andrefpvs said:

June 25th, 4:41 pm

To buy this DLC, I’ll hit my wallet for massive damage.
