LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Launching September 25th in North America

Simon Rosenkotter's Avatar Posted by Community Coordinator, Tarsier Studios


It’s time. Time to reveal the LittleBigPlanet PS Vita release date! The game will be available in North America on Tuesday, September 25th. That’s right, in just a few short weeks you’ll experience Sackboy’s next adventure, set on the mysterious traveling planet of Carnivalia.

We’ve put together a featurette video for the game, which you can watch up at the top of this post. The video will tell you a little bit more about LittleBigPlanet Vita’s story.

Thanks to PS Vita’s unique features, you’ll be able to play completely new game experiences and share your levels with the world wherever you are and whenever you feel like it. You can take pictures of anything you see while you’re out and about, and use them to decorate Sackboy or customize your level. It’s never been easier to make your cat or dog the hero of your level!

By the way, it’s not too late to pre-order the game and get some bonus BioShock or Knights of Old costumes.

    This is something we are looking into right now. We should have some good news for all those of you who wish to buy the digital version shortly.

Hooray, can’t wait for this. Now I just need release dates for Ragnarok Odyssey, New Little King Story, Soul Sacrifice, Jet Set Radio, etc.

In the words of Mr. Charles Montgomery “Monty” Burns, “Excellent.”


Day one for sure.

Is that a planet in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Simon, so do we only get to pick one set of pre order costumes or both? I’m definetely picking the bioshock costumes if you can only pick one!

    I believe that is the case. But it might worth checking at different retailers. In any case, these costumes will become available at some point on the PS Store. But not for a very long time and the colour scheme of the Knights of Old costumes is exclusive to the pre-order.

ABOUT DAMN TIME! Gimmie gimmie gimmie!

Really looking forward to getting this game (digitally from the PS Store). Will there be a demo a few weeks earlier to help tide us over?

I’m also interested to see how this will work with LBP2 on PS3. Will that functionality be available at launch?

DarkOne_PR said:

August 2nd, 8:40 am

Reserved mine like a week ago! If u reserve at gamestop u get both customs! XD

I was very pleased with the beta it was awesome! (the touch controls werent as responsive in some lvls but i think it was bc it was a beta) but apart of that, LOVE IT!

Hoping the story its good! for what i see it will be! :)

bmart008 said:

August 2nd, 8:42 am

I’ll certainly be grabbing this, but digitally! So please give us the week one dlc for digital users!

    As said above, keep your eyes peeled for an announcement regarding bonus content for digital users! :)

JimmyHACK said:

August 2nd, 8:45 am

@14 you get them both from Amazon and Gamestop. So it’s pretty nice it’s not split up everywhere

RenderMonk said:

Thought I’d add my two cents about digital downloads. I personally find digital downloads perfect for a portable device. Not having to swap out discs or cards sounds menial enough, but there’s just something about being able to power on your device, and have all that you need/want ready at your disposal with nothing else required to get playing. All that to say, I can’t wait for LBP Vita, and will be buying it digitally, as it’s a game I plan on playing a lot and often, so I won’t want to have to swap out game cards everytime I want to play the latest hot new level!

ABNVOX said:

August 2nd, 8:50 am

hell yes! today is my birthday and you guys announce the release date of my most wanted vita game! thanks for the sweet birthday present! :)

ABNVOX said:

August 2nd, 8:54 am

thanks simon!!

pounceapex said:

August 2nd, 8:58 am

If only grad school wasn’t starting a month before. Hopefully this game will not get in the way.

Curtisio said:

August 2nd, 8:58 am

I love both LBP 1 and 2. The PSP version just didn’t rock for me, sadly, so I’m crossing my fingers on this one. Too bad I didn’t get to play the beta.

DarkOne_PR said:

August 2nd, 8:59 am

haha ABNVOX my birthday its in september 30! but i wont wait those 5 days XD

BTW: Im calling it now. this game 9.5/10 – 10/10

Curtisio said:

August 2nd, 9:00 am

Will this version have sticker panel and hologram materials?

    Simon Rosenkotter's Avatar

    Simon Rosenkotter said:

    August 2nd, 9:05 am

    Yes, those two materials are extremely useful so there was no way we could not include them. :)


August 2nd, 9:00 am

What is this PlayStation Vita you say? I never heard of it. What can it do??

Link01 said:

August 2nd, 9:03 am

Thanks guys! I was wondering about the pre order bonus for the digital version too. Is the digital version going to be the standard %10 off price?

DeathKidd said:

August 2nd, 9:05 am

Yay awesome news!

All that’s left to hear is Ragnarok Odyssey now.

Curtisio said:

August 2nd, 9:07 am

First, thanks for answering my question about the materials.

Second, thank you for making this game for Vita!

@ Simon I want the game and the beta was great, but in the beta the saving took ridiculously a lot of time and the levels or menu wouldn’t load while the saving indicator was on and it kept like that for minutes that I couldn’t do anything. Before I decide if I will buy it, I would like to know if either that was a beta problem or if that has been already fixed. Otherwise I won’t buy a game that takes forever to load at random times and after I download a level.

    We have made many improvements to the whole game since the beta and we will continue to improve it after the release. :)

ccrogers15 said:

August 2nd, 9:10 am

Who cares. I doubt many people still even have there vita. The vita was abandoned, so people got ticked and sold theres.

ccrogers15 said:

August 2nd, 9:11 am

Us fans dont like being lied too. We were promised PSone classic support. Nothing. We were promised all psp games available to play emulated. Nothing. Stop lying to us.

Suicide_Surfer said:

August 2nd, 9:13 am

This might be the reason i get a VITA. Do you have any idea when we might start seeing some reviews roll in?

macy113 said:

MakoSOLIDER said:

IIL0YDII said:

August 2nd, 9:26 am

Will there be a preorder in PSN to get bonuses like retail copies preorders?or it’s better to get retail and skip digital version?

JimmyHACK said:

August 2nd, 9:30 am

    Sounds like you have plenty of great games ahead of you then! :)

ohiostatedog said:

August 2nd, 9:49 am

YES! This and Uncharted are the main reasons I got a Vita. Hopefully this’ll help boost system sales. LBP FOR LIFE!

Ethereal said:

August 2nd, 9:50 am

As expected, and greatly looking forward to this release. The beta is incredible, dare I say better than the PS3 counter-parts. Already pre-ordered and day one for me! Keep up the good work Sony!

BlindMango said:

August 2nd, 9:56 am

It would be a REALLY good idea to release LittleBigPlanet Karting on the VITA, an OVERWHELMING amount of people I talk to say that they won’t buy the title until it is on the VITA, it is only an advantage to you guys! LBP Karting would be the perfect Vita title!!

The_Bunn said:

August 2nd, 9:57 am

Cool, I’ll buy it

The_Bunn said:

August 2nd, 9:59 am

By the way, what are the cross-play features?

DeadKillersRevng said:

August 2nd, 10:01 am

@DZORMAGEN Can’t tell if trolling or just… probably the later.

Zacky-V-A7X said:

August 2nd, 10:02 am

Yes!!!!!! can’t wait

remanutd5 said:

August 2nd, 10:11 am

i second Little Big Planet Karting on PSVITA, and sony really needs to address online gameplay on the vita, i mean ModNation Racers Road Trips lacks the feature, Resistance Burning Skies needs to improve it.
