LittleBigPlanet 2 Announcement Trailer and Screenshots
LittleBigPlanet is an amazing game and the sequel looks even better. The official website is loaded with details. LittleBigPlanet 2 won’t just be a platforming game, it will be a platform for games. That’s right, you can actually make whole games thanks to the revamped creation tools.
Take a look at the trailer above for a whole bunch of awesomeness crammed into two minutes. If the video doesn’t give you a warm feeling in your heart, nothing will.
Through a familiar but revamped Popit, you can bring your characters to life, compose your own music, direct cinematic masterpieces, wire controllers directly in to your contraptions, connect easy to use switches, microchips and circuit boards to build epic bosses, vehicles, machines, and puzzles.
Make your wildest dreams come true, yes, even that one.
As you can tell from the trailer, there is a lot you can do in LittleBigPlanet 2. You can make your own cinematics, fully customize the controls to your liking, and create intelligent machines. There will also be new powerups which includes a grappling hook and bounce pads. The best part is that all 2 million levels from the original will still be playable.
According to NowGamer, LittleBigPlanet 2 will have keyboard and mouse support. Drawing things will be even easier now thanks to this ability. Just imagine the possibilities!
So what’s the story about?
Happy that no more demands are being made to him after his successful adventure to return sharing to LittleBigPlanet, it’s all going swimmingly for Sackboy… That is, until a some kind of inter-dimensional, hyper-spatial, 1800 watt Vacuum Cleaner appears in the skies, causing quite the ruckus and sucking Sackboy up into its musty bowels. All jolly sinister and most inconvenient.
Happily, a jolly nice fellow named Larry Da Vinci intervenes and rescues him from what has come to be known as The Sucker. Da Vinci, it turns out, is in charge of “The Alliance”, a semi-secret, semi-organised group devoted to fighting The Sucker before it destroys the whole Cosmos.
LittleBigPlanet 2 should be hitting store shelves sometime in the Winter of 2010. Excited? Of course you are!
