Although LittleBigPlanet 3 launches this November on PS3 and PS4, Sumo Digital is working on a LittleBigPlanet spin-off that will be available before the release of LittleBigPlanet 3. Titled Run SackBoy! Run!, the game is described as a platform-survival game, and it's being developed for PS Vita, and Android and iOS devices.
The Negativitron makes a return in this game, wreaking havoc on Craftworld. Taking control of SackBoy, players will need to use simple tap and swipe gestures in order to dodge enemies and obstacles as SackBoy speeds through several iconic places for LittleBigPlanet series, including The Gardens, The Canyons and Avalonia.
While playing through the levels, players will collect bubbles, which can be used to buy special costumes and upgrades. These costumes have built in score multipliers, allowing players to challenge themselves to obtain better costumes and get higher scores. Players can also purchase several power-ups too, including a Jet Pack, Shield, Magnet and Glider.
In addition, playing Run SackBoy! Run will offer players exclusive costumes for LittleBigPlanet 3, which can be seen below.
Run SackBoy! Run! will be available this October as a free-to-play title.
