Well, today was a good day for fans of Sackboy. Though Media Molecule seemingly has no more interest in LittleBigPlanet, Sony still loves it, and they showed it with their new game, LittleBigPlanet 3. Besides basic cosmetic differences, such as more depth between the foreground and background, the new game has one big reveal – multiple new playable characters!
First up was Oddsock, a tiny pup puppet who can run super fast, solving puzzles, as well as wall jump!
Next to be revealed was Toggle, a bulky sockman who can either use his weight to push things or depress switches, or shrink down really tiny to fit through small gaps.
Last but not least was Swoop, a tiny bird sock that can fly and carry friends in multiplayer.
Additionally, Sackboy himself has a new device, called the Pumpinator, which allows him to blow objects away, aiding his allies and opening up paths in multiplayer. Speaking of which, that seems magnificently improved with the addition of these new chums. Looks as though single player mode can also play as the 4 adorable sock creatures. Even more exciting than that is that the level creator aspect seems fully intact, and that it is slated to release this coming November for PS4! Now if it was just on a console I owned, it would be utterly perfect. Kudos, Sockboy.
