LittleBigPlanet 3

Sony Computer Entertainment and Sumo Digital announced LittleBigPlanet 3 for PlayStation 4 during its E3 media briefing this evening.

Due out this November, the threequel introduces new friends for Sackboy in the form of OddSock, Swoop, and Toggle. OddSock is quick and agile, with the ability to wall jump. Swoop can glide thrrough the skies with his fight ability. An Toggle can transform between Big Toggle, who is strong and large, and Little Toggle, who is light, speedy, and can walk across water. Like Sackboy, these new characters are fully customizable with quirky new costumes.

All 8.5 million levels created in LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 will be compatible with LittleBigPlanet 3, now with updated 1080p visuals.

Additional creative layers, such as jumping in and out of the screen, climbing stairs, skating down slides, and zip-lining have also been added.
