Media Molecule and Sony have announced that LittleBigPlanet 2 is on track for a November 16 release in North America. The first LittleBigPlanet boasted an expansive playground for the creative minds of gamers and boy is creative an understatement. The sequel looks to take that to a whole new level, allowing players to create their very own games in the game.
A game in a game, who da thunk it?
Alongside the release announcement are some details regarding preorder goodies as well as a collector's edition! Sony and Media Molecule have also teamed up with Disney, Pixar and Insomniac as well as retailers Amazon.com, BestBuy and GameStop for various preorder bonuses. Preorders from Amazon will receive Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank costumes while BestBuy and GameStop customers will receive Toy Story 3 and Tron: Legacy outfits respectively.
However, the real kicker is the LittleBigPlanet 2 Collector's Edition which touts a copy of the game, a seven inch plush Sackboy(Whoopee!), a set of LPB-inspired bookends and a ton of exclusive DLC, including the above mentioned plus Jak and Daxter costumes and a set of PSN LBP avatars.
The Collector's Edition will be available on the same day but only at select stores in limited quantities.
