Fans of Sackboy will be no doubt anticipating the release of LittleBigPlanet 2, but now they have no more reason to fret since a release date has been announced for later this year. November 16, to be precise. Media Molecule also answered pre-order questions for the game and there will be plenty of fun things to add to your LBP2 experience, including some Disney/Pixar outfits.
What do you get specifically? Let me show you (all pre-orders will receive the four animal costumes):
- Amazon provides you with a Ratchet & Clank outfit for your Sackboy.
- Best Buy offers you four animals as well as a special Pixar costume, the alien from the Toy Story series. “The claw!”
- GameStop provides you with a slightly neater Sackboy costume, a Tron costume.
I don’t have a doubt in my mind that people who pre-order LBP2 will have a difficult choice to make. All the extra costumes look incredible, but the Tron one definitely has my heart. Who wouldn’t want a Sackboy ready for disc combat? No word yet on whether or not you get a light-cycle as well, but I’m crossing my fingers.
And yes, there will also be a Collector’s Edition available for purchase ($79.99) with all the aforementioned pre-order items, and a bit more.:
- A copy of LittleBigPlanet 2
- Your own little “Sackboy” — 7” of plushie-goodness for you to accompany you on your journey through LBP2.
- Exclusive LBP2 “game ends” — keep your PS3 games in a tidy, organized and ‘Sack-ured” within these unique bookends
- One stop shop for exclusive DLC + more — regarding in-game content, the LBP2 Collector’s Edition comes packed with 11 different pre-order costumes, including:
- Disney / Pixar’s Toy Story 3’s “Aliens” Sackboy Costume
- Disney’s TRON: Legacy “Clu” Sackboy Costume
- The Muppets’ “The Great Gonzo” Sackboy Costume
- PlayStation’s “Ratchet” Sackboy Costume
- PlayStation’s “Clank” Sackboy Costume
- Even More Animals’ “Crocodile” Sackboy Costume
- Even More Animals’ “Vulture” Sackboy Costume
- Even More Animals’ “Cobra” Sackboy Costume
- Even More Animals’ “Mandrill” Sackboy Costume
- And exclusive to the LittleBigPlanet 2’s Collectors Edition:
- PlayStation’s “Jak” Sackboy Costume
- PlayStation’s “Daxter” Sackboy Costume
- 5 exclusive LBP2 PSN Avatars — Lastly, complete your PlayStation experience with a new identity on the PlayStation Network with these new avatars.
Obviously, if you just can’t decide which place to pre-order from, you might just get yourself the Collector’s Edition and have access to all the Sackboy costumes. Perhaps that was Media Molecule’s way of influencing your decision? Who knows? Another $10 for all that stuff doesn’t seem that bad and you even get a Gonzo costume! Who doesn’t like Gonzo? I mean, Miss Piggy didn’t really like the guy, but then again, she’s just an awful, awful Muppet.
I’m sure you’ll be able to figure out which version you’ll be able to get, you have a few months to decide.
LittleBigPlanet 2 changes and shapes the world into a place filled with little cute sack beings on November 16, 2010 exclusively for PS3.
