[VIDEO] First footage of LittleBigPlanet 2 in action

LittleBigPlanet 2 is Sony's latest worst kept secret. A whole bunch of details about Sackboy's sequel have already been distributed far and wide around the internet. But what you probably haven't seen yet is the first trailer showing the game in action. You can see it now:

In case you missed them, the crucial things you should know about LittleBigPlanet 2 are:

  • It will be backwards-compatible with all existing LittleBigPlanet community levels and content
  • It will let players make their own games (not just levels), from racers and shooters, to platformers and cookery sims. You'll even be able to make your own cut-scenes
  • The introduction of 'Sackbots' will let players populate games with automated characters, complete with their own completely tweakable AI routines
  • A new 'Direct Control' feature will give players the ability to take 'direct control' of any element of a creation with whatever controller configuration feels most suitable
  • It will be released in winter 2010

Above: A glimpse at how the Direct Control system will work

    im happy theyre making a sequel but on the other hand the first game already had way to much stuff for me so much that i was overwhelmed and never even finished the tutorials or try to make a legit level. ill probably just rent this for the story mode i hope people will still make new LBP1 levels for me to play

    omg, adorable overload! I love the Space Invaders part. I have yet to create a level in LBP. After watching all the tutorials I got overwhelmed.

    I was against this at first but when I saw it was backwards compatible I completely changed my mind. This has got to be the best gaming year EVER!!!

    WOW! CANNOT WAIT! shame it won't be out by summer! but otherwise, damn! Q4 2010 sounds damn promising so far, with this and MGS:R in line!
  • Felixthecat - May 10, 2010 3:24 p.m.

    I'm sad it won't be on 360.
  • Wolverine08 - May 10, 2010 3:21 p.m.

    WOOOOOOOOOOW, didn't think LBP needed a sequel, until I saw this.
