GI-MUNGOUS update for you guys today…so lets get right to it.

LBP What's New

Alex Evans REMIX’d

A few weeks back, during the Mm Community Jam, Alex, myself and the rest of the Mm team stayed up all night with our super-users. And when you combine no sleep + coffee / energy drinks / both with fun, creative minds and lots of laughter ensues. Particularly at my expense, as they found out I was the Marketing Manager for Genji: Days of the Blade. From then it was nonstop Genji talk, ending in a brilliant auto-tuned song dedicated to me, with brilliant lyrics and chorus of “Massive Damage” / “Giant Crabs”. Payback time…

  • If that’s really a whole level pack like Pirates and MGS, I will buy it along with Spidey & Venom. If it’s some kind of plain level like Incredibles looked like, I’ll skip it.

  • This is great!!! It’s clobbering time!!!

  • What about Angel? It would be awesome for the costume to have wings that expand/flutter when falling!

    A Professor Xavier costume with a wheelchair would also be really cool. Seeing a handicapped sackboy hop around and be active would be really inclusive for people who are wheelchair-bound!

  • trophies for the level pack i hope?

  • what about that Sephiroth costume??, we will ever see it before LBP2 gets released??

  • Are those LBP t-shirts going to be available on hottopic.com as well?

  • Will there be a Deadpool costume eventually?

  • When are those owed the LittleBigPlanet PSP Launch Cap getting theirs? I’m one of them. I’m one of the many collectors, who will also be buying all these costumes. -_-;

  • I my self am more of a DC fan. So is there hope you can work with WB to bring DC costumes to LBP. I think bringing DC characters to LBP would be really cool. So I hope DC will be next.

    Even though I am not the biggest fan of the Marvel universe I think it is great to see them come out on LBP. So it is great to see lots of great content still coming out for LBP. Thanks for the great support for LBP & I can’t wait to see what will be added to it next.

  • Excellent! Awesome to still see dedicated LBP posts on the blog. I’m also thinking that future press conferences should be accompanied with a live auto-tune operator. There’s nothing quite like learning new information whilst simultaneously “getting down”.

    Also I just wanted to drop a link to a new video series we’re doing over at lbpcentral.com – The Creator Closeup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJNQRN6E_Go (this one’s hosted by myself).

    If you’ve got room in a future blog update and you think it’s appropriate, we’d love a blurb! Anyway, take a look, hopefully you’ll enjoy the unhinged maniacry on display.

  • This is cool and all, but I only like Punisher, Spider-man, and Hulk from Marvel. Can y’all please sign a deal with DC Comics(my favorite comic book company) as well. I would love to have the big three characters Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as well as the other Dc characters lol

  • Somehow this feels like….old news, considering people probably made their own custom Marvel costumes months ago. Does this at least carry over into Little Big Planet 2?

    Well its beautiful how a $60 game purchase turns into a $200 investment after all the add-ons and DLC.

  • @ Mark

    Sorry for making you second guess yourself, man. I’m just SO happy this is finally here. One question, though; any chance you can sweet-talk MM into one more character: Cyclops. I’ll pay $5 just for him. Tell me Sackboy wouldn’t look sweet with Cyke’s visor. Oh, well — at least I can finally play as WOLVERSACK!

  • bring it on!

    already got Little Big Planet 2 pre-ordered…

  • can you put that song up on psn for us to download lol

  • Need these on Modnation. Please.

  • ooooo,im so getting this thats for damn sure

  • Why don’t the people with lbp psp get any awesome dlc. I always feel like we get the ps3’s scraps. Don’t get me wrong I love lbp psp and ps3. But I need dlc I can sink my teeth into, not put up with just because it’s all I get. You don’t have to give the psp the best dlc but give us some of the older stuff(sephiroth(?), snake, ezio etc.) along with the new one’s that come out. I’m so tired of getting the most random dlc. And also( please forgive the fact that a sentence with “and”) what about the pre order bonus, when Is that coming to the store. I tried my best not to rant and don’t think I don’t appreciate the game and the dlc but please give me a reason the want to play lbppsp longer that ten mins. Thank you.

  • Holy crap, we’re getting new levels? Good god, it may snow in june/july.

    About time and where’s sephiroth??

  • Marvel? That’s great! It’s about time!

    Now, Mark… what can you tell us about the possibility of being the GODDAMN BATMAN in the future? That’s a dream come true.

  • And… dang. I thought the team jerseys were DLC addons. Disappointed they’re only avatars :(

  • Guys seriously, fix the cool levels hacker problem, that alone is killing LBP, :(

  • “HUMONGOUSAURUS REX HUGE update for you guys today…so lets get right to it.” that would’ve been awesomer.

  • I buy enough comics every month that my shop gives me 20% off of everything….and they’re ALL Marvel.

    July 7th is mine and my wife’s anniversary. (how’d ya know?!O__O)

    Thank you so much for making this just for me!!!

    MAKE MINE MEDIA MARVELCULE!!!
    (yeah, that was really corny, but you LOL’d)

    EXCELSIOR!!!

  • P.s….everyone, they already did a deal with DC…it was called the Watchmen pack XD

    otherwise….
    DC = Don’t Care

  • OMG heres my chance to ask! PLS ANSWER!!!
    When its Sephiroth Sackboy will be able to download!!!?? that was announced like 2-3 years ago and nothing its being told about it! WTF with that? Or…. maybe sony its waiting for some unexpected announcement at TGS, *cough* FF7 remake *Cough* so u guys can announce Sephiroth SackBoy as a celebration for FF7? HUMMMM????
    Anyways TELL ME SOMETHING.

  • Sorry, I don’t have ALL the answers, but since you ALL CAPS’d – I felt compelled to say something…

  • does marvel just love sony or wat?

  • OMG you guys are going to cake up in dough with this Marvel LBP costumes.

  • New Levels? Very nice thanks

  • Why leave out the fourth member of the Fantastic Four?

  • Were is Disney super heroes costumes and levels? Only Pirates of the Caribbean has been made from the E3 reveal last year…? Any comments on this?

  • Will the Marvel level kit have trophies like the MGS and Pirates of the Caribbean level packs??

    How can I make autotune songs?? Which software??

  • all of that looks great except for Hot Topic.

    ewwwwwwwwwww.

  • Mark please give feedback to my previous post

  • Making fun of GIANT ENEMY CRABS is such a childish thing to do.

    :o)

  • is any of this for psp version

  • ok i like to start off saying ALEX EVANS ROCK’s hes my hero no joke :D he’s inspired me to become a game designer

    i would like to ask about the crowns here’s your quote “Rare Prize Crowns for your efforts” you said for your efforts so do we get crowns just for doing an awsome job!!!??? :D thanks

  • …………. That was simply not fair… but anyways, thanks for saying “something”…T__T

  • So Mark, you’re a fan of deadpool too? It’s a shame there isn’t an official sackboy costume… Just will have to stick with my created costume.

    Also I agree with DarkOne_PR. Sackiroth was announced before LBP1 was even released, and has yet to come out.

  • How long does it take to actually make the costumes? Like, man-hours wise. I’ve always wondered about the production time. And what’s abouts the entire timeline from the idea, to the gathering of the rights to release, the making of, and finally the release? Seems like if you had a dedicated team you could really churn out a lot of new and interesting costumes that don’t even have to be licensed. I would like to see more mythology type costumes!

    Also, why can’t we have a PS3 controller in our sackboy hands!? Seems like that should have been an object from the very start, included in the game already!!

  • just LBP: Game of the Year edition.
    gameplay is fun and graphics is nice too!

    let me know if any of u want to co-op!

    psn id; zahirani

  • as long as there’s no Deadpool skin (worst comic book character ever)

  • Sorry scarforce I got to disagree with you (not because he’s my favorite character) but because of almost every hero In the west coast avengers. Ever heard of big bertha, she’s one of the worst in my mind. Besides that I wanted to ask mark, do ukno if this was the only characters mm is gonna make ever or if the deal warrants more costumes later on.

  • Woah dang. That’s a lot of dudes…

  • DOCTOR OTAGONAPUS BLAAAARRRRRGGGGGG

  • How long will the challenge last? I couldn’t find that unless it’s just over the summer in which case when does summer end?

    Cool about the Marvel costumes, two days after my birthday ^-^. I shouldn’t have sold my GOTY copy, but Uncharted 2 was to appealing before I had online. I know what I want for my birthday now.

  • Dear game developers
    Since you have created Marvel costumes for LBP, please also include DC comics characters!! And mabe a level pack PLEASE!!!

  • You also shud TOTALLY DO Fallout3 armour!!!!!! and levels.

  • ok. some good costumes there, i’ll be sure to get some of em…
    however, ‘Invisible Woman’?
    don’t really know marvel too well, just heard of names like wolverine, hulk, spiderman, the main ones like..
    surely, this costume has to be invisible? (i can only presume she’s invisible, would make sense)
    how exactly are we gunna no where we are in a level or whether we’re inches away from falling into a pit of fire for example if we can’t see ourselves? or is that the challenge of it all?
