Sackboy still wants your love
LittleBigPlanet 2 was released months ago, but Sony is keen to keep its clothy character in the forefront of gifters' minds this Christmas with a relaunch of the game in two new packs.
First up is the LittleBigPlanet 2 Special Edition, which includes the game and $35 worth of additional content. Top of the list is the LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling, which adds stacks of Move content and features to the standalone game, and was enough to net it a 9/10 score in our LittleBigPlanet 2 review. That's not all, though: here's the full list of content in the LBP2 Special Edition:
- PlayStation Move support: Now you can choose to play LittleBigPlanet 2 with all new Move controls and enjoy the over 6,000 Move games created by fans like you…FOR FREE! Endless Fun!
- LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling: A whole new adventure in which a rogue cake threatens doom and destruction, and you Sackfolk must once again attempt to restore peace to Craftworld, featuring 5 new levels + 7 mini-levels, and tons of goodies. Plus, all of the cool new Move tools to let you Create and Share your own “Move” games for the rest of the community to Play! This suite of new creative tools give you the power to create your own Move games, record fluid motions, and paint your own stickers, while using a boatload of new stickers, materials, decorations, costumes, music, sound and sequencer objects that will vastly broaden your creative palette, and make your Popit burst at the seams.
- Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story Level Pack– five new levels + two mini-levels + one Alien costume and more goodies.
- Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story Costume Pack – Buzz Lightyear, Slinky Dog, Hamm, and Rex costumes for Sackboy!
- Pets Costumes — The full line of costumes (12) from the Cats Costume Pack, Dogs Costume Pack, and Even More Animals Costume Pack
Not bad, all in all. If you haven't got PlayStation Move yet you might want to consider Sony's next package, the LittleBigPlanet 2 PlayStation Move Bundle, which includes the special edition of the game as well as a Move controller, Navigation and PlayStation Eye. GameStop currently lists this pack at $129.99, with the special edition retailing at $59.99.
Both packs hit retailers in North America on 15th November.
