AHHHH! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ It’s actually coming! The newest installment to the LittleBigPlanet series has recently been announced for release on the PS4!

Greetings everyone! After keeping our lips sealed for such a long time we’re pleased to finally be able to tell you what we’ve been up to in the imaginative world of LittleBigPlanet. Today we announced that LittleBigPlanet 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 this November!

Sackboy is back and for the first time ever joined by three new friends – OddSock, Swoop, and Toggle. Each one of these new playable characters has unique abilities, which brings new dynamic gameplay and expands the inventive possibilities in Create mode.

This time around, just as LBP 2 brought to the game loads of new logic features which drastically changed the way levels can be created, LBP 3 somehow manages to bring a new amount of features which will certainly make the game worthwhile.

First of all, we have new characters! Here is the image of them all:

New Characters

This is just amazing! Now gameplay can utilize the unique features and characteristics of each of these characters, and the options for creations just expand.

These three all-new hand-stitched heroes will completely change the way you play…

  • Bound up and over walls as the quick and agile OddSock!
  • Glide through the skies as the majestic Swoop!
  • Transform Toggle between Big Toggle, a heavy strongman and Little Toggle, a light speedster who can walk across water!

Just as Sackboy, each of these new little wonders can have costumes and customizable looks! So that will not be lost.
Also, even though we have these new guys coming our way, Sackboy will still get some of the awesomeness. He will have a new climbing ability AND new powerups, such as the “Pumpinator”!

This is just the start! There are going to be so much more new features come the release of LBP 3, but some of the new features which have been disclosed are:

  • New creative layers for depth
  • Climbing up and down stairs
  • Skating down slides
  • Zip-lining on a puffy sponge

In addition to adding a whole lot to the game, LBP 3 will support all previous LBP and LBP 2 creations! πŸ˜€ LBP 3 will utilize the amazing features of the PS4: it will come in a beautiful 1080p graphics display, support the DUALSHOCK 4 controller, and use the share button to broadcast your own creation and gameplay clips.

Still not enough? Here’s a little video trailer then!

Oh, wait! Do you not have a PS4? Fear not; neither do I! Luckily for us, LBP 3 will ALSO be available for the PS3!

This news is just absolutely exciting. The game will be coming this NOVEMBER, so keep your eyes peeled for news and updates! πŸ˜€
