Little Big Planet 2 Swings to Retail on PS3
Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced the North American release of Little Big Planet 2, the sequel to the award-winning, multi-million unit selling hit, exclusively for the PS3. Developed by Media Molecule, Little Big Planet 2 provides players a new means to play, create, and share, with revolutionary gameplay mechanics that allow for a level of control and customization that has never been seen before.
This franchise has always empowered players to create their own levels with the same tool set used by the development team, but now with evolved creation abilities, players can not only make better levels, but completely new games across multiple genres. Little Big Planet 2 also features a brand new storyline, a revamped graphics engine supplying stunning visuals, and added accessories and equipment to help Sackboy to make his way through this new world.
“Since the launch of Little Big Planet, our online community has uploaded over three million levels to the PlayStation Network, with creations popping up everyday that continue to amaze,” said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA. “With Little Big Planet 2, players now have the ability to create actual games across different genres, so it will be very exciting to see what our community can come up with. Little Big Planet 2 also boasts a brand new story mode for Sackboy to explore that, coupled with the millions of user-created levels online, provides an endless entertainment experience that can be enjoyed by the entire family.”
Little Big Planet 2 begins with a new story mode that provides a beautifully reshaped world for Sackboy to explore and play. The campaign includes 40 story levels across six different themes; each level influenced by cultural high points in history and visually stunning when seen through the game’s revamped graphics engine. All of the new levels and territories to play fuse different historical ideas together to create fresh aesthetics that populate this new world, with themes including: Techno Renaissance, Steampunk and Cake, Neon Propaganda, Fluffy High-Tech, Designer Organic, and Hand-made Arcade.
