LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Marvel Arcade Pack Coming Next Week

For those of you eagerly salivating over new adventures for Sackboy on the PS Vita … well, you need drool no longer! We are delighted to announce a brand new game add-on for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita; the Marvel – Arcade Pack!


The Marvel – Arcade Pack contains three fantastic new games, each of which will challenge you in very different ways. In Hero Rush, you’ll team up with three of your favourite Marvel heroes — such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Thor — and try to survive for as long as you can. Shoot for high score heroics by avoiding plasma beams, rockets, and all sorts of obstacular trickery. Of course, obstacular isn’t a real word, but you should never let a dictionary get in the way of your Marvel heroics!

In the mind-bending puzzler Avengers: Ultimate Escape guide several Marvel heroes, including Hulk, Captain America and many more, through a deadly maze. The cool thing about this game is that the challenges you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

And last, but by no means least, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. – Interceptor! Take control of the Quinjet and blast your way through wave after wave of the invading Chitauri hordes. Don’t forget to pick up coins along the way to unlock new weapons in The Vault..

Of course, it wouldn’t be a LittleBigPlanet level pack without a whole host of new create assets to play with and bring your own creations to life! By collecting coins in the arcade games, you can unlock over a hundred new stickers, dozens of decorations, sound effects, and three new interactive music tracks.

The Marvel Arcade Pack will be available on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 for $4.99, exclusively for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita. Be there, or we’ll send Hulk round to convince you!

  • Sweet!! I love LBP!!

  • huge fan of LBP!! getting it day one!!

  • P.S. are costumes included in this pack? :P

  • Very cool.

    Will this pack let you use any of the Marvel characters in the standard LBP levels?

  • Oh my god im getting this day 1!!!!!! please sony Little Big Planet, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time are among the best games on the system so far, why dont you guys bring Ratchet and Clank, Jack and Daxter and Sly Cooper Collections to the vita? heck how about bringing all ps3 collections on the little system? Fat Princess? Dead Nation? Warhawk? oh my god Warhawk on the vita would be the bomb!!!!!!!! we need a Warhawk/MAG kinda game on the vita ASAP.

  • Yes are there any costumes included in this pack?

    • Simon Rosenkotter

      No, but if you want to you can buy a bunch of Marvel costumes from the PS Store already. My personal favourite is the Iron Man costume. :)

  • Man! As a fan of both Little Big Planet and Marvel Comics I am in NerdVana right now! I love this. Great to see more PS Vita goodness!

  • Great news simon! Glad to finally see the long promised dlc for this game.

    Now if only we could see the guys at United Front fix the mess that is LBPKarting… so many crashes…

  • Any new Materials, simon?
    We NEED new materials! Aaaaaaargh.

    • Simon Rosenkotter

      I hear you! This pack does not contain any new materials, but there is a good chance that any future packs will come with awesome new materials. :)

  • Finally, new content for lbp vita. I am very grateful for the cross-buy costumes, but all the other content is very low (especially non interactive and interactive music).

    Will there be more packages like this on lbp vita?

    I´m happy to know that this new content it’s going to give us another type of content, but we need more.
    I would like to see level kits that are based on LBP1 and LBP2 levels, including its music, costumes, stickers, decorations, etc, or maybe another premium level kit (final fantasy VII premium level kit for example).

    • Simon Rosenkotter

      Keep an eye on the blog and the official LBP channels. We might just have more announcements in the future. :)

      Do let us know if you have anything in particular you would like to see!

  • Awww this comes out after the 50 for 10 promotion which means I cant use this towards that :(

  • Yay, more Vita content!

  • Surprised this hasn’t been asked.
    Does it add trophies?

    The last Marvel pack didn’t feature trophies.

  • Sounds great. Any screenshots or video?

  • Awesome! @ trophy support. Sweetens the deal :)

  • Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can get the multiplayer to work online I can get online and play community levels but I have trouble connecting to other players and would like to know what I am doing wrong

    • Simon Rosenkotter

      There is another patch coming very soon that will address some of the connection issues that some of you are experiencing. Let me know if it’s still an issue after you installed the patch.

  • I’m getting this First Day But One Question i See all these Super heroes when we chose them i read

    you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

    Does that mean i’m gonna have a different powers with different heroes ???

  • Seems a bit expensive if you compare to previous DLC packs which have included stickers,materials and costumes.

    • Simon Rosenkotter

      This packs contains 3 levels, 3 new interactive songs, over 100 stickers, several new objects and decorations.

  • Dat Hulk sackboy is the shizzle :D

  • I still have to get this for my PS Vita, it’s great to see dlc for this game!!!!!

  • Since it’s exclusive to the Vita right now, when will we see a release for this on PS3!???!? Will we?????

  • i have had these marvel stickers in my lbpv popit for almost 2 months now. but now i am locked out of all levels that has these stickers. it said i had to buy the marvel add ons so i did and still locked out.

  • #16

    i had the Same Issue i Can’t Connect to Any One Online i Can’t join Them And when they Join me The Game Start lagging

    I have a Happy News For You…. You Can Fix This You need To Open Some Ports On Your Router and Make an Ip for You Vita If you Still have This Issue Contact me On My Psn Id and i ‘ll be happy to help you

  • Well this pack is ehhh great but.. I feel like this is just too random.. for the first lbpv pack I feel like it should have been something more original like a new story mode similar to previous lbp level kits. Lbpv is hurting for new content and correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t really want a bunch of marvel themed stickers, decorations, objects or music.. or the fact that we don’t get any new materials or costumes(objects?).. I’m hoping that this new stuff we get is versatile material that won’t look awkward in any random level or creations. Well I hope the next dlc will have a lot more content. Lbp2 got some great stuff from the move pack and cross controller dlc ;)

  • Simon I Hope These Powers Not limited By The One Level i hope to See More in Future And you have My Money

  • Any plans to improve the rendering/texture quality? Right now, LBP Vita looks like a slightly-better-than-upscaled version of LBP PSP. Chunky textures in the foreground, last-gen lighting effects, etc that other Vita games have overcome.

    I like the gameplay itself, but I don’t play it much because the graphical quality really bugs me.

  • the stuff you get in lbp vita Marvel pack can you use it on lbp2 on the ps3?

  • o and i would like to see a mini pack of uncharted 3 wit talbot sully elena and chloe or a level pack with these costumes and with a new thing that lets your sackboy climb stuff like a ladder

  • Will the stickers,etc… work as part of the cross-platform play?

    I want to deck out my and my son’s pod! lol

  • Simon!

    You said:

    ”There is another patch coming very soon that will address some of the connection issues that some of you are experiencing. Let me know if it’s still an issue after you installed the patch.”

    The patch that you are reffering is the 1.08?

    (Sorry for my bad english)

  • Yes, more LBP.

  • Sold!!! I’ve taken a small break from LBP Vita for PS3 games, but now it’s time to jump right back into the fun!

  • Metal Gear Solid Level Pack to PSvita plz…..

  • It says “…Arcade Pack”. is it like the other arcade minigames, or is it a platformer like the story mode is?

  • My only comment about the price is that with LBP and LBP2 packs at least my family benefits from that stuff on the PS3, this pack is solely for the PS Vita, so only I can use it, because of how PSN ID activations work on handhelds. FWIW

    Is this going into the Arcade section on the Story planet? Does this have any indicate possibly that future DLC packs will be Arcade all the time? I’ll have to ponder this one a bit to let that sink in peaceably.

  • awsome

  • I’m actually surprised to see this, I played it the first few months it was out but it’s taken a back seat to newer titles, I will gladly pick this up Tuesday. I really can’t wait to hop back into LBP Vita. My ideal packs for the future might be a PS Allstars type theme, send Drake, Cole, Kratos and a few others on some wild missions, all the costumes are already in place.

    Keep up the good work.

  • i have installed the patch that was recently released and it seems to have fixed the connection issues i had. although i seem to have lag that makes it hard to play yet i dont think this is due to lbp vita but too my internet connection will update later when i get home and can use my home internet on the status. This is very promising patch as i have my first multiplayer game in lbp since the game was released i guess better late than never.
