LittleBigPlanet 2 Announced (Trailer)

by Arthur Kabrick, posted on 10 May 2010 / 2,498 Views

Yup, LittleBigPlanet 2 exists. It's confirmed, it's real, it's releasing this year...and it looks incredible.

Though Sony hasn't provide a huge amount of detail, Eric Levine of SCEA has said that the sequel to LittleBigPlanet will have "loads of new features, including revamped graphics, a fresh storyline, added accessories and equipment for Sackboy, and much, much more", and added that he was only scratching the surface with this vague description.

Media Molecule seems to be claiming that a far wider variety of genres than ever before will be able to be created using LittleBigPlanet2's toolkit, which is allegedly very similar to that of the original, but with infinitely more depth.

Over 2 million community levels have been created for LittleBigPlanet in the year and a half since its launch. Among these countless levels have been several gems, made with what was admittedly a rather basic level creator. What's left to add? Well, the trailer can explain that far better than I.

Notice the variety of genres. The "intelligent machines and enemies". The claim that you can make not just levels, but entire games.

SCE's recent acquisition of Media Molecule can only do wonders for the small developer, as it did for Guerilla Games. And if Killzone can become Killzone 2.... what could LittleBigPlanet become? We'll just have to wait and see: the game is set to launch near the end of the year.

Little Big Planet 2 will be coined as " The Game that Made the World Happy !!!" Happy Times for PS3 Planet ^_^

Suddenly out of nowhere LBP 2 NUKED every gaming website with megatons of information!!! !!! BOOM !!!


PDF (on 10 May 2010)

I hope this sales well. I got a bad feeling though. LBP wasnt the type of game that needed a sequel. After that trailer though. I for one cant wait. I just hope once again sales match the quality of the game.


vitoaf27 (on 10 May 2010)

From top to bottom, including both the excellent soundtrack (for this trailer, at least..) and the incredible amount of content in the game, this game looks sweet. Got "bored" of LBP after about a year (lasted waaaay longer than many of my games last me) and that's only because I wasn't big into making levels. However, that's only because they restricted me to solely platforming games. LBP2 gives me the option to create ANY game I want, and that will honestly NEVER get old.


Gilgamesh (on 10 May 2010)

Holy sweet tangerine blue f*ck that's amazing looking!, if this doesn't sell 2 million first week I'll be extremely disappointed!


Silver-Tiger (on 10 May 2010)

Sony's first party is still unbeatable. ok, maybe by Nintendo, but by nobody else.....


Heat (on 10 May 2010)

This looks like it will be to LittleBigPlanet 1 what Uncharted 2 was to Uncharted 1. It looks absolutely HUGE!


Xoj (on 10 May 2010)

gurglesletch (on 10 May 2010)

It looks as though Sony has a Real Ace up their sleeves for this holiday along with GT5.


Bornswavia (on 10 May 2010)

So they executed this trailer really well. Gave me slight chills, in a good way. As in "Wow, they're revolutionizing gaming, again." I wasn't hyped up till this trailer. Will 100% for sure be on my list of gamed to get this year.


down-down-down-down- (on 10 May 2010)

WoW can't wait for it =D


Miguel_Zorro (on 10 May 2010)

Only a few months ago, people were saying Sony had all their good games coming out at the start of the year, and that they had "nothing" for the fall. This sounds like a fantastic game.


darthdevidem01 (on 10 May 2010)

LBP 2 Will be HUGE!


dirkd2323 (on 10 May 2010)
