Its official, the Comic-Con hangover is in full effect. The past 5 days was a rush of comic culture, movie panels, toys, cosplay and of course, video games – I still can’t believe how many people were at Wednesday Nights “Preview Night.” The crowds on hand were tremendous and want to thank everyone who came down to check out the PlayStation booth and visit our LittleBigPlanet staff. You guys had lots of great ideas, LittleBigStories, and we promise there will be some cool new merchandise in the VERY near future…
And in case you missed it, yesterday, we we’re pleased to announce a LittleBigPartnership with our amazing friends at Marvel. Check out the pic below from the Marvel Video Games panel and a sneak peek of a few DLC costumes in the works.
Here’s the official release for more detail:
Iron Man, Wolverine and Captain America Invade LittleBigPlanet; Marvel Partnership Announced at Comic-Con.
July 27 – Sony Computer Entertainment and Marvel Entertainment officially announced that they will be collaborating to create original LittleBigPlanet content based on the Marvel Universe. The news was revealed yesterday at Comic-Con International in San Diego during Marvel’s panel discussion highlighting the next generation of Marvel video games. To help illustrate what might be in store for fans, concept art of possible costumes were shown incorporating Iron Man, Wolverine and Captain America, however other characters will be considered.
With “Play, Create and Share”, LittleBigPlanet has established the Creative Gaming genre and the game continues to grow and evolve, helped by partnerships with marquee brands such as Disney and now Marvel. The customizable nature of the unique PlayStation title allows players to alter characters and build entirely new objects and levels; then share and play them online as part of the LittleBigPlanet community. In fact, the sharing nature of the game has become so embraced, it has attracted fans to publish more than one million levels to the PlayStation Network since the award-winning game launched last October. Put another way, one new level has been published roughly every 21 seconds since LittleBigPlanet hit shelves.
