LittleBigPlanet fans everywhere can rejoice. The sequel, LittleBigPlanet 2, will be arriving in demo form for PS3 players everywhere on December 21, 2010. It will give players a chance to try out some of the new gameplay mechanics by offering them a sample of the single player mode.
According to Sony, the demo will give players the chance to:
Experience the swinging good fun of the Grapple Hook, rescue some helplessly adorable Sackbots, and see the chaotic multiplayer fun that blows up when competitive scoring mode and some Creatinators armed with rockets are combined.
If the demo won’t satisfy you, you can always try to get into the beta when Media Molecule sends out another wave of invites next month. Although, unless your a PlayStation Plus subscriber or a community contributor, you may have a tough time getting one. Who knows though, maybe we’ll have one to giveaway, guess you’ll have to wait and see.
In addition to all this, also announced today was a new PSN title called Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, which combines the fun of LittleBigPlanet, with, you guessed it, the new PlayStation Move. It will be a complete standalone game that will hit the PSN on December 15th. It will also be on the LittleBigPlanet 2 retail disc. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can download it for free on December 8th.
According to Sony, it is being described as:
Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves contains a brand new 10 level theme – a dinosaur dominated land where the Evil Big Rex is king. You are on a mission to take on challenges engineered by Terrance Dactyl – and you’re going to need help. So put on your bear skins and grab up to four mates to navigate the tricky terrain of tropical jungle and erupting volcanoes – the player with the PlayStation Move controller leads the way, flicking switches and triggering platforms to help the others, using DualShock Controllers, through each level. Leap between Dino heads, use the Move controller to blast aside crates of bubbles, ride dinosaurs through prehistoric cities and take to the heights of the prehistoric tree canopy – then team up to defeat Big Rex, all while collecting Trophies along the way.
So there you have it, a ton of LBP news today. Remember, LittleBigPlanet 2 will hit store shelves on January 11, 2011. Be sure to pick it up then. If it’s anything like the first game, there is no way you can go wrong with a purchase.
