The sequel to the game that was at one point described as a game that would never need a sequel has been given a November 16 release date, and LittleBigPlanet fans are already being teased with a whole bunch of new goodies.
First off, in addition to the standard $60 game, there will be a Collector's Edition bundle for $80. It’ll include a lot of exclusive in-game stuff, plus a pair of "game ends" (aka bookends), and a 7-inch Sackboy plushie that is so cute we want to smash it for making our hardened gamer hearts feel so vulnerable. Say it with me: Awwww!
Secondly, the almighty pre-order bonuses have been announced, all of which are in-game costumes:
Amazon: Ratchet & Clank costumes, plus four animal costumes
Best Buy: Toy Story alien costume, plus four animal costumes
GameStop: Tron: Legacy Clu costume, plus four animal costumes
However, if you slap down $80 for the Collector's Edition, you'll get all of these costumes anyway so don't feel pressure to pre-order. And that is what you will want to do, because the Collector's Edition also comes with a Jak costume and a Daxter costume, AND....
A Gonzo costume! Word!
LittleBigPlanet has a pretty impressive track record of licensing a lot of external content, ranging from Metal Gear Solid to Pirates of the Caribbean to Street Fighter. When you're able to get through to the Muppets, though, you know you've hit it big.
