LittleBigPlanet 1

Sony’s a dab hand at needle work, so it’s little wonder that the platform holder is working on a new LittleBigPlanet game for the PlayStation Vita. The head of the company’s French division Philippe Cardon revealed the exciting tidbit, hinting that we should expect more excursions to craftworld on the manufacturer’s flagship handheld.

Chatting with regional publication Pockett, the executive said that Soul Sacrifice and LittleBigPlanet would drive the system’s sales this year. Asked to clarify, he confirmed that he was talking about a new Sackboy story, rather than 2012’s stunning release. However, as VG247 points out, Cardon also revealed that the console would land a Monster Hunter game in its first year on the market.

If true, though, there could potentially be two LittleBigPlanet titles currently in development, with Sumo Digital also rumoured to be working on an entry for the PlayStation 3. Are you excited for more burlap buccaneering, or do you think that the series deserves a rest? Let us know in the comments section below.
