You'll Need to Grab Your Cape for LittleBigPlanet 2's Comic Book Crossover

Posted by Sammy Barker

Holy add-on, Sackman

LittleBigPlanet 2 is almost three years old now, but that’s not stopping Sony from continuing to support the do-it-yourself game making platform with plenty of expansion packs. The latest add-on is a real humdinger, too, fusing the serenity of the Omniverse with the dastardly exploits of the DC Universe. In addition to a bunch of familiar outfits, the platform holder’s produced a brand new Premium Level Kit that will see you joining forces with the Justice League in order to put a stop to Lex Luthor’s evil plans.

As well as several fresh stages, pins, and PlayStation Network Trophies, the DLC will come with a bunch of new abilities for you to implement into your own constructions. For starters, the ‘Hero Cape’ will augment your Sackthings with the skill to glide over long distances, while the new ‘Wall Jump Surface Material’ will allow you to create tough platforming arenas that would make even the Prince of Persia proud.

Finally, the Memoriser is making the leap from LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, allowing you to store logic so that players can leave your levels and return without their progress being lost. In essence, the firm has easily added another couple of years of life to the exclusive. You’ll be able to buy the pack individually or as part of a Season Pass, which will include an additional PlayStation Vita expansion and four costume bundles. The PlayStation 3-based Level Kit is due out this week, with its handheld counterpart set to follow in the New Year.

Almost 3 years old? It feels like it's been around forever what with all the dlc it seems to get.

Speaking of LBP, what's going on with that LBP Hub that was announced at Gamescom?

HNNNNG Sony why do you want more of my money? I give you so much of it.

1: Yeah, I have over half of the LBP DLC. And slowly I am getting more and more.

@get2sammyb - The Vita seems to be getting a bunch of stuff as well (accordig to the US Blog anyway). Dont know if it's anything anybody wants but at least it makes them look like they're trying.

Has their been enough stuff put out for a LBP2 special bundle edition yet? That cape looked really cool, and I just remembered yesterday about the special Vita - PS3 levels they put out awhile back. Plus the Move pack is sitll $10 I think. Don't know how much this will be but wouldnt min dall th enew stuff put into 1 tidy package.

Oh, and I'm out of the loop on LBP2 b/c of my 1 yr PS+ lap, the icon has just bene sittng there staring at me waiting for my eventual return. And now I'm back, but I'm playing LBP Karting. This looks good though. MechaLex.
