The Muppets Invade 'LittleBigPlanet 2' with New DLC Expansion

LittleBigPlanet 2 Muppets DLC Trailer and Screenshots

It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets... in LittleBigPlanet 2? That's right, The Muppets will be the focus in the latest batch of downloadable content for the PS3's LittleBigPlanet 2, and fans of both franchises will be able to get this latest content starting today.

The pack itself contains the traditional "decorations, stickers, objects, music tracks, sound effects, and voices," but that's not all. Consumers who purchase the soon-to-be-available content will also receive "7 new trophies, 12 new pins AND a bonus costume of Rowlf the Dog." If the promise of additional decorations, new trophies, and Rowlf the Dog weren't already enough, there will also be a new gadget that is sure to "pull" you in.

The new gadget has officially been given the name "Attract-O-Tweak Gadget," and it will allow Sackboy to transform certain surfaces into "Attract-O-Gel" material. This enables LBP's titular sack man to run up walls, and even ceilings, without the use of parkour.

You can get a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming Muppets add-on for LBP2 by watching the official trailer below.


On top of all the awesome new costumes and levels that are being prepped to drop down onto the PSN in the near future, there is also a little bit of a story as well.

"The nefarious Phantom has plans to stop the Muppet Show from being a smashing success. That simply will not do! With help from the new Attract-O-Gel and Attract-O-Tweak, products of the infamous Muppet Labs, it'll be up to you to make sure it all goes off without a hitch before the last curtain falls."

It's not exactly the most captivating background, but it's more than adequate for this downloadable romp.

The fact that The Muppets are preparing to join the illustrious ranks of past LBP DLC entrants (i.e. Marvel, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.) should come as no surprise to anyone who purchased LittleBigPlanet 2's Collector's Edition — which actually included a Gonzo costume.

The LittleBigPlanet 2 Muppets add-on will be available for purchase on the PSN starting  today for $5.99.
