You can get a Sackboy figure wearing a lion mask, ya’ll.
When you look at the first party line up for Sony’s PS5 launch, there’s quite a lot to take in. It’s probably the most extensive first party launch line up ever, at least that I can remember, and has both new and returning faces. One of those is Sackboy from the LittleBigPlanet franchise that was a huge hit for Sony in the PS3 era. Now it’s time for the sack to come on back with Sackboy: A Big Adventure this November, and it’s time to get reintroduced.
The game will be developed by Sumo Digital, and today Sony released a trailer of one of the developers talking about the character as well as his origins. For the most part if you followed LittleBigPlanet, this will be familiar, but it has been an absent series for a good while, so it’s a nice refresher. There’s also bits and pieces of gameplay. You can check it out below.
We also got details on two Special Editions you can get via the official PlayStation blog. One is the Digital Deluxe Edition which includes a digital artbook, 4 costumes based on Sony first party titles, 4 emotes, 20 avatars and the original soundtrack. The physical Special Edition includes all of that with the artbook and soundtrack in physical form and an adorable Sackboy plush figure wearing a tiger head.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure will release at launch on November 12th for the PlayStation 5, and will also come to the PlayStation 4 on the same day. The Digital Deluxe Edition will be for both the PS5 and PS4, while the physical will be PS4-only, though the game is confirmed to have a free upgrade to the next gen version.
