LittleBigPlanet 3 release date delayed in Europe

Sony has announced the LittleBigPlanet 3 release date has been delayed in Europe, but only by a week.
Fans of the Sackboy series will be a little saddened to hear they’ll have to wait another week for LittleBigPlanet 3 in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Previously, the game was due to be released on Wednesday November 19, but now it will arrive on November 26 – another Wednesday strangely.
“We’re currently working our socks off with Sackboy and friends to get the game to you as soon as possible but it’s recently come to our attention that we’re going to have to move the release of LittleBigPlanet 3 in Europe by one week to give Sackboy the best opportunity to shine,” explained Sony in the latest PlayStation EU blogpost.
“This was a very difficult decision to make but since LittleBigPlanet is such a globally appealing game, it seemed only right to give more peoplethe chance to get to know Sackboy and his new friends.”
The American release date is unaffected by this delay though, which suggests it isn’t actually connected to giving the game extra development time at all.
Previously, LittleBigPlanet 3 was launching in one of the busiest launch weeks in the gaming calendar. A week that will see Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4, Escape Dead Island, Project Cars and more hit the market.
Sackboy and co will therefore have a little more room to shine in a week with only the likes of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire arriving.
