What do Marvel’s Iron Man and Media Molecule’s Sackboy have in common? Very little, but that won’t stop Iron Man’s gear from showing up in the world of LittleBigPlanet. Marvel recently released some information and photos of what Sackboy can look forward to doing and wearing in the coming weeks.
Marvel announced that you can look forward to a total of four Marvel costume packs that each include five different costumes. You can check out all of the Marvel characters showing up in LittleBigPlanet listed below.
- Captain America
- Doctor Octopus
- Ghost Rider
- Green Goblin
- Invisible Woman
- Iron Man
- The Human Torch
- The Punisher
- The Thing
On top of all of those new costumes, you can look forward to a Marvel themed level pack that falls into the same category as the Metal Gear Solid and Pirate’s of the Caribbean packs. The Marvel level pack will include “four levels of adventure pitting your Sackpeople against the evil plans of Magneto”. The pack will also include Marvel-themed music, stickers, materials, objects, and even a new rooftop background — all of which can be used in your own levels. The Marvel Level Kit sounds like a good time if you ask anyone at Game Rant, although the lack of a Deadpool costume is a bit of a bummer.
Fans who are concerned about the new Marvel DLC being compatible with the sequel to LittleBigPlanet, appropriately titled LittleBigPlanet 2, should have no fears because it’s fully transferable to the new game.
Marvel announced that they will show off a new Sackboy costume everyday on their website until the new add-on hits PSN on July 7. Yesterday’s reveal was Iron Man, so today’s Marvel hero should be along shortly, and we hope it looks as good as Iron Man does.
