LittleBigPlanet 3: The Journey Home Out Next Month

When we last saw Sackboy; he had just waved goodbye to Newton, Captain Pud and Nana Pud before stepping into Newton’s latest teleportation contraption to depart Bunkum for a one-way trip back to Craftworld… Or so we thought…

LittleBigPlanet 3: The Journey Home is coming next month and will chronicle the next exciting chapter for Sackboy, OddSock, Toggle and Swoop; as they discover that Newton’s contraption didn’t exactly work as planned and they end up taking a “grand detour” of LittleBigPlanet!

The Journey Home will be our first major Premium Adventure Pack DLC and will come with a new Adventure featuring brand new levels based on fan-favourite themes and characters from LBP and LBP2 totally re-imagined for LittleBigPlanet 3, some cranium busting co-op challenges for Sackboy and his new friends, a bouncy new Power-up for OddSock and a goodie bag full of new creative assets to decorate your own little corner of LittleBigPlanet with.

  • I’m always glad to see more (official) content coming to Little Big Planet. It seems every new asset leads to all sorts of interesting community levels, too. The things they make are usually more than just kinda funny, too, they’re frequently hilarious :-)

  • Wow guys this is great! Do you have a price yet for this? Will there be new trophies?

    • The premium packs for LBP1 and LBP2 had trophies, and came at a good price too. I would assume it will be the same here also.

      Off topic: I like this new reply feature here.

    • We will have full details and pricing for this new pack closer to its release!

  • When will Double Bubbles work on Run Sackboy Run?

    • Sorry to hear you’re still having issues with this, we thought it had been addressed.

      Could you just let me know which platform you’re playing Run Sackboy! Run! on and which PSN account you purchased the upgrade for?

  • Did this game finally got fixed? I stopped playing after a few weeks when my saved data was somehow erased and not to mention all the glitches.

    • One of our previous Game Updates has made save files considerably more stable, so you shouldn’t run into progress loss any longer.

    • Last time I checked (about 2 months ago), I still couldn’t continue the story past the first world. That after deleting-reinstalling the game multiple times. My son will rather turn on his PS3 and play LBP2 than even touching LBP3. That has been our experience.

  • 6 months later and the game still suffers from crippling bugs. Shame on you all. My kids still prefer LBP2 due to the very, VERY long load times and inability to save new levels.

    • That’s an unusual issue, which levels are you unable to save?

    • Yeah, my wife and I were really looking forward to this game. Between the bugs, loading times, and even not supporting trophies for 2nd player (yes, that doesn’t matter to some people, I know) this game was a huge let down. I do look forward to a LBP4 still, but I hope they don’t make it cross gen and the game works at launch. This game is the reason why I won’t be preordering on the store anymore. I could have at least finished the game and turned it in and got something back.

    • Yeah, the lack of Trophies for additional players on couch co-op was a bit frustrating, to say the least.

  • Cool. I just got back into LBP3. Waited for a few updates to jump back in. How much is the DLC?

  • This looks mighty exciting! I’ve been wondering where these would come. Glad to see LBP3 expand further!

    • If there’s one thing you can always be assured of; it’s that we will continue to provide you with new tools and content to expand your creations even further!

  • Does this game still have 800MB savefile issue or is it resolved now?
    That was the only reason why I didn’t buy PS4 LBP.

  • Site changes so far look great to me BTW

    Also, free stuff is always appreciated

    • Our thoughts exactly!
      That’s why we also like to bring some free new content in our game updates!

  • Personally I think the Red replies should be for developers only. It is too confusing now whether it is a Dev replying or just another user.

    • too right!

    • Justin Massongill

      Yep, already flagged this with the folks driving the update process. Red should definitely be reserved for authors. Thank you!

    • If it can be made where replies from users were light blue, and red for the authors, that would be nice. It is definitely a welcoming addition to the blog, but needs some work.

    • You folks are all awesome but it certainly makes me feel like I’m responding to myself… ;)

  • Remarkable to still see a constant stream of content coming to the LBP game.This community is one of the best out there!!!!!!!!!!!

    • And that’s exactly why we continue to bring you all this great new content to create with!

  • CrusaderForever

    This is great news! My son and I loved LBP3! The COOP was so fun and we really enjoyed it all the way to the end. The only problem with the game is that it was short and it ended. The new characters are amazing. More content is very much appreciated. Also, love that you can now reply to comments!

  • WaveLightning777

    O_O Comment replies. From the masses. That said I do agree with Merc @ 10, something needs to make the dev/official comments stand out.

    ON TOPIC: Will we be seeing a fix for the remaining DLC anytime soon? It wants me to repurchase the GoW Minipack, and some of my favorite costumes require the Cross Controller DLC and thus I’d like to see that too lol.

    • I’ve heard talk that they’re planning on having the cross-controller pack fixed by sometime next month.

    • That’s correct!

      We are aiming to make the LittleBigPlanet 2: Cross-Controller Pack’s contents available to LittleBigPlanet sometime near the end of July, it’s a slightly more complicated content pack than the rest so requires some more work to make the contents compatible.

    • yeah same here i haven’t played cause i cant port many of my objects like my starwars At-At from littlebigplanet 2. glad to hear their working on a fix. also sumo some starwars dlc would be amazing. wink wink nudge nudge. i can already see oddsock in an at-at costume or swoop as an at-st haha i think im gonna draw up some fake concept art.

  • I’m excited for it!
    Also glad we can reply to one another officially now, though I can see this getting out of hand. I think we really need a thumbs up/down system to make sure nasty comments get pushed down or hidden or a report button. I imagine a report button would get abused and keep you busy with trolls…so maybe the thumbs would work better.

    • Justin Massongill

      A thumbs-up system is something I’ve daydreamed about myself. Looking to make bigger changes to the comments in the future, but nothing concrete yet. Thanks for the feedback. :)

  • LBP3 was the biggest disappointment in 2014.

    It was released with an unprecedented amount of bugs and game-breaking and game-crashing problems. Save files being corrupted, multiplayer constantly disconnecting or if not it would break the game on its own. Previous LBP DLC from other games are still NOT available. The game is still littered with problems.Yet the devs keep shoving out more and more for this game instead of apologizing for the way this beloved franchise was treated. They knew the condition the game was in before releasing it.

    LBP was the PS3 console seller for me. It’s by far one of my top 5 favorite Sony franchises and it was painful and heartbreaking to see Sackboy treated the way he was when I got my hands on my copy of LBP3 on the midnight launch only to have to give up and go to bed early because the game was literally unplayable, even after the patch.

    Please fix this game because I want to come back. Don’t let it STAY BROKEN like LBP Karting, which I assume will never be fixed.

    • lbp2 launched with multiplayer lag issues then they fixed it a while later. the mp lag was pretty game breaking.

    • yes, the worst part is they ignored me when I asked for a refund. Bought game Day 1, and game is still broken 7 months later. Now they want us to spend more money on their game.

    • Still better than Halo: The Master Cheif Collection, Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Watch_Dogs.

    • I apologise if that’s how you felt at the time of LittleBigPlanet 3’s launch but since then we have been working hard to improve the game and address any issues reported by the community in our regular game updates.

      The save profile corruption issues were fixed in a previous update and we have addressed the vast majority of the LittleBigPlanet 2 DLC compatibility issues (we’re just cracking down on the last few remaining edge cases now).

      We are actively looking into the multiplayer issues that some players are reporting for our 9th Game Update but if you’re encountering any specific issues, please do feel free to tell me and I’ll get our QA team to look into them for you.

  • What are you’re ideas for the next level pack on lbp3 or lbp2

    Myself: charakters from Playstation that compete against XBox charakters

    BTW: i say lbp2 too because some people don’t have lbp3 and i don’t k know how to spell charakters i’m Dutch ☺

  • When will the Cross Controller Pack come out? I can’t edit my own levels on my moon that have assets from the pack in it from LBP2…… This is really annoying!

    • This compatibility issue required considerably more work than the other LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 content but we’re currently aiming to make the contents of this pack compatible with LittleBigPlanet 3 by the end of July.

  • This game kinda needs an update to the online’s stability issues before big packs like this release. It’s probably really difficult to fix but I still can’t join my friends on anything other than moon without the game collapsing on itself and disconnecting us whenever we try to do anything but moon.

  • “our first major Premium Adventure Pack DLC”

    So there is more to come? Any kinda of announcement you can give to how many or time between releases?

  • 1) New Site is different, but good. Keep replies, but how about editing comments and some kind of like/dislike/report system to bury troll comments? How about a counter to tell us how many characters we have left before going over the limit? It’s annoying to type something, and then be told to just cut characters until it finally goes through.

    2) I’ll buy this as soon as it releases, but please keep fixing the game for others. I haven’t had any problems, but it’s been a dealbreaker for many people, and is staining the franchise name. I’m certain that hearing of this expansion won’t make them feel any better.

    It’s a shame, really, because like DriveClub, this game’s community was impaired by the need for it to be out for the holiday season. Hopefully this won’t stop a future, full 3D title from being released, or the community from drying up. The game’s great, but not enough people are getting to see that.

    • Also, I’d really like to see two more 4-player co-op levels added to the main game, for the other hubs. It was kind of disappointing to see the game advertised as that, and then only have a short five minutes of actual co-op focused multi-character levels.

  • Yaay!!! But something in LBP3 for PS3 is annoying me… The load fade of the planets o..o

  • atradaitoshirain

    Sounds Good :-)

    We purchased this game as a Christmas present for a family member. They played through the entire game without a single error and have a wonderful time playing it. The level of difficulty was perfect in LBP 3 i.m.h.o. I hate buying games as presents and the person I buy them for can’t complete the game because they are too difficult.

    What is that free costume with the bugged out eyes? Is it a cat?

    • It’s a Tarsier!

      In honour of our good friends over at Tarsier Studios! (They worked on LBP PS Vita, LBP2: DC Comics Premium Level Pack and oh so many other things!)

    • atradaitoshirain

      Thanks for the reply Steven :)
      A Tarsier, cool.

      Thanks for the free costumes!

  • Hello, will you guys ever add dual sign in trophies for player 2? I hate the fact that we have to replay the game and collect every trophy for every player when playing with more than one controller. I’ve had other games give the responding trophy to every player, this game seems to be one where you don’t. Will that please be looked into? Thanks!

  • I love LBP1 and 2, but I am severely unimpressed for this $60 glitch fest I’ve purchased. LBP3, even after many updates, ruins my stages from LBP2 and nerfs just about everything. The save system is just weird and confusing. The data corruption causes me to have to restart the entire game several times. I am sincerely disappointed in my favorite series in recent years. Maybe Sumo Digital should’ve stuck to the Sonic racing games and Media Molecule should do LBP titles from now on.

    • If you would have read @15 under Steven Isbell’s reply. lots of things has been fixed. including some things.

      I do heard that the upcoming 1.9 patch is going to fix some of the comparability issue with Legacy Levels (aka, Magic Mouth bug) according to Steven Univers- I mean, Isbell.

      but yeah, that’s sucks that ya had to be a victim into the infamous glitchfest/disappointments in 2014.

    • We addressed the save corruption issues in a previous update but if you’re seeing some discrepancies in the behaviour of your levels between LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet 3, please feel free to provide me with links to those specific levels and we can take a look at them for you!

      Levels should be behaving identically between the two games, it is rare but not totally unheard of for creators to think totally outside the box and create logic that is totally mind-blowingly powerful that a minor change elsewhere may make things go astray… That is one of the brilliant things about LittleBigPlanet, the infinite amount of possibilities that we put directly into your hands!

      We want to help you ensure your levels remain compatible though, so do feel free to let me know which ones are behaving oddly between the two games.

  • Will LBP Marvel Edition ever be fixed to support dlc’s available for the vanilla edition? Still silence on this issue and it’s been 7 months. Ignoring customers is not a great strategy.

    • read below @15.

    • We believed that the majority of these issues had been resolved for the Marvel content.

      Are you using the same PSN that redeemed the code on your PS Vita?
      Are you encountering issues with any particular costumes at all?

  • So are we ever getting the UFC Fight Pass app? Xbox one has had it for a while now.

  • Looks like fun. Will it be available on both PS3 and PS4?

  • Awe yeah….that sumo character looks awesome. I can already see how great it will add to the community. Steven thanks for confirming that you guys are working on cross controller pack…makes me feel better :)

    Now just got to be patient and wait to see what happened with the joel costume from last of us pack.

    The game for me seems nearly perfect….yes there are bugs. Some of them may be wierd. But I thank them for all the hard work they put into this so far (running through all that code is not so easy)…for now I am having fun trying to build…small bugs and all

  • I have a an improvement suggestion, but I have no idea what the best or proper channel is for relaying this info. It has to do with Shardinator behavior.

    To summarize, if you slap a Shardinator on an object and configure it to shard-ify an object that is in motion, none of the shards retain the velocity of the original object. Instead, the shards have their velocity set to 0. (I can create a sample level if it would help illustrate this behavior.)

    To improve this behavior without affecting existing levels (that might rely on the current behavior), simply add a toggle that would allow the shards to inherit the velocity of the original object, and default it to false.

  • I know you didn’t develop LBPKarting, but since it’s in the family, I’ll post about it here. As I’ve said elsewhere, Karting does not let me connect to the network. At all. This leads me to believe the game’s servers have been taken down, but I can’t get a response from any of the parties I’ve reached out to about this.

    Kind of sad to have a game abandoned like this, with no explanation.

  • Any reason LBP3 wasn’t 60fps on PS4? I really enjoyed the franchise, and felt, especially after playing LBP1 extensively that it would become a major pillar for Playstation. One of my biggest gripes however is not being able to run through levels with precise speed and precision because of the physics. Is this due to LBP always incorporating levels from each iteration? For me personally, that’s kinda what I want in a LBP.

  • Wow this DLC Pack looks very promising! I can’t wait for it :) . I like how the designers have turned the king character into a sack costume! Awesome new upcoming DLC Pack :)

    • Haha! We had quite a chuckle ourselves when our artist that designed the costume showed us their original concept for it!

  • I have supported LBP since Little Big Planet 1 PS3, and the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack I bought day 1 for Little Big Planet 1 on PS3 will not work in LBP2 or LBP3 at all. In LBP3 it always say I need to purchase it again and that I do not own it. Why is that? When is this going to be fixed? There were comments they were working on it but nothing ever comes of it.

    • Are you using the same PSN account that you originally purchased the content on for your PlayStation 3 console?

      If you perform a text-search for the content on the main PS4 Store, are you able to locate the content there?

    • Yes same PSN account, I bought Metal Gear Solid Level Kit for Little Big Planet 1 right when it was released on PS3. But I can no longer use it, in PS4 LBP3 I can see Metal Gear Solid Level Kit in the Playstation store but it wants me to repurchase it as if I don’t own it. Either via the store in LBP3 or directly via the store on PS4.

      The date in my download list and purchase history is 1/11/2009 of the purchase.

      Product Purchase
      Purchase Order
      LittleBigPlanet™ Metal Gear Solid® Level Kit (1)
      Purchase Total

    • Also, In my download list on the web PSN store the icon now says:

      LittleBigPlanet™ Karting
      LittleBigPlanet™ Metal Gear Solid® – Level Kit

      But the description just comments about there being a costume:
      The best thing about Sackboy™ is that you can make him look and act exactly how you want. Download this costume to dress up like a Gurlukovich Soldier from Metal Gear Solid®.

      But I purchased it before Karting came out and it was for LBP1 but probably when Karting came out something on Sony side updated my metal gear level addon kit to be a karting type addon just for a costume or something and ever since then its as if my metal gear solid level kit doesn’t exist anymore that I purchased. Also the download list has no download capability link for it.

      So in LBP3 the icon for me says to purchase the LBP3 metal gear level kit for 5.99 new as if I never had it.

  • Any word on when the Metal Gear Level Kit will be returning to the North American PS Store? I can’t find it anywhere, not even the original version for LBP1 and LBP2. I recall it being available for LBP3 a few months ago, but now it’s gone for every LBP game.

  • I applaud the development effort to patch and new content, unfortunately though I don’t find this game as fun as 1 and 2, maybe I just have sour grapes about a day 1 purchase and the fact that I bought DLC for DLC I already owned until it was fixed. Sony should change its rules against “pushing” for release dates and offer more testing for AAA titles less they be downgraded to meh. I might try this game again after July when some more bugs are patched….

  • 7 MONTHS AFTER REALEASE. 7 MONTHS and i still cannot play community normally. Multiplayer in PS3 version is extremely broken. (who cares right? its old-gen, who cares if i paid full price and i recieved a broken product) Every time you finish a level and you return to your pod the game has an “Error loading profile” which takes FOREVER to even display. And this happens EVERY SINGLE time after finishing a level with someone. And instead the team focuses on developing more downloadable content? Very classy Sumo Digital. And since there are no refunds, i’m stuck with a product that doesn’t work. Thanks for destroying Littlebigplanet.

  • i love lbp 3 and my sister does too and this dlc will be so fun and remembering lbp 1 and 2 will be so much fun

  • I’m glad to see some new free costumes for LBP! Thank you guys!

    Premium DLC for LBP3 is great news! I’ve needed something to draw me back. :)

  • Hey isn’t LittleBigPlanet HUB for the PS3 going show up at E3 next week? and after that released the game this month for real this time?

  • I was a fan of LBP since day 1. It became like a hobby, but then LBP3 came out and completely destroyed the series for me. Not only did I feel ripped off, and I can’t even remember the last time I bought a game and felt this way, but I feel like Sumo Digital/Sony took advantage of me by releasing a product that was far from finished knowing that tons of people that adore this series would buy it day one. This was actually the first major release I bought digitally because I thought there was no way I would actually want to return it. Boy was I wrong. This is the first and last major release I will buy digitally. (PART 1)

  • (PART 2)

    I tried really hard to work around the glitches and actually found ways to get around them only to find that the game was SO GLITCHY and SO BROKEN that it wouldn’t even let me publish my level at all. It wasn’t even close to being finished. I was just publishing a locked back up. I purposely tried to make something that wouldn’t be too hard on the thermo and it didn’t even matter. Nobody would put up with the amount of crap I have, but I kept trying again and again after every update and it still doesn’t work. Not even being able to publish an incomplete level is the final nail in the coffin I would say. LBP has always been pretty buggy but this is just unacceptable. LBP3 is a waste of time and money and seeing you attempt to continue to rip people off by releasing DLC for a broken game is disgusting.

    To the folks at Sumo Digital, I really don’t know how you sleep at night.

  • been a while since i was last on LBP3 but will “Dive in” option ever be added back in?

    • Agree the Dive-In feature is a must. That is part and parcel of what makes the community exist. Dropping into new ransdoms and having fun. Sadly missing for too long.

  • Speaking of content that is still not available:

    I have a Crown awarded directly from Mm that works fine in LBP1, 2 & 3 on PS3 but not LBP3 PS4. It’s one of the few items still lost as I try to get all missing content back up and running again. Steven, if you’ve got any ideas.

  • Hey guys,
    I have a terrific idea!

    How about instead of working on new content. . .
    let’s fix the game that I bought from you.

    LBP3 is one of the most unstable programs I’ve seen on a platform system in many years. This hardly even addresses the substantial amount of DLC that is *supposedly* cross-compatible. Even if I were to ignore the butchered Community system, which while far from perfect in LBP and LBP2, was far more functional.

    While there are other issues I could nit-pick, the biggest problem is that your staff cannot make a reasonable stable program. This inexcusable lack of quality control does nothing to help your market. It certainly influences my purchasing decisions.

    The franchise is your property and if you choose to expand on it, that’s your right.

    Likewise, I am free to not pay money to people who fail to make their products usable.


  • Will there be new materials you can get from the pack? Looks promising though!

  • Y’know, to be honest, I don’t want new content. I hate to sound like a negative Nelly here but all I want is for the game to be playable with friends. It’s STILL so broken, and so disappointing. My boyfriend and I played Little Big Planet 1 and 2 so much on PS3, we loved it. We hardly experienced issues, lag, etc. But this one? What the heck happened? Besides the change in devs.

    So today, just today, I tried playing with my boyfriend online and immediately bugs began to show up. For example, he didn’t show up as a friend at all. “0 friends online”. The only way he could join was doing so as a stranger and I block strangers from joining. So I had to unblock for him. Btw he did try to invite me and it kept saying “Failed to join.”

    Okay, so next we tried to play in level creator. Laggy, so laggy. This is the biggest problem to me. Playing anything, any level at all, results in such bad lag for everyone. Please work on this as priority?

    A little later, I opened my goodies bag and it said I had nothing collected. All my stuff was gone, all stickers, gadgets, outfits, you name it. So with a heavy frustrated sigh, I just shut it off.

  • Where can I find new info on this?

  • When this dlc comes out will i be able to play with friends, im asking this because the game lags crazy when another online person joins on PS4, a next gen console. it frustrates me because ive met all my friends on lbp 1, then when lbp2 came out we had even more fun, and Karting, but now lbp3 on ps4 lags out and bring s me to the dashboard even when im alone in my pod decorading my earth. FIX YOUR GAME!

  • thenerdclan2015
