Little Big Planet 3 announced for November launch

Sony and Media Molecule have announced Little Big Planet exclusively for the PS4.

The game features a cast of new characters that will aid Sack Boy on his journey, and adds “much more depth than we’ve ever had in the game before”. The whole cast was shown off at Sony’s E3 2014 press conference, much to the delight and amusement of the audience.

As with previous Little Big Planet titles, the game will offer new power-ups like Pump It Up, but the biggest new addition to the series is new characters.

There are three new friends for our old favourite Sack Boy. The first is Odd Sock, a little dog-like creature with four legs capable of wall jumping. He is visibly much faster than Sack Boy.

Next comes Toggle. He’s the biggest and the strongest of Sack Boy’s new friends, but he can also transform into the smallest new friend to fit in small places.

Swoop is another new character and is the only new one that can fly.

The characters will have to combine their abilities to help Sack Boy to the goal in multiplayer. For example, Swoop can pick up characters and take them to new locations, or you’ll need Toggle to push a heavy block out of the way of the others.  

The game will arrive in November and from that time, all the user creator content from previous Little Big Planet titles will be available to play with upgraded and enhanced PS4 graphics.
