LittleBigPlanet brings costumes to Karting, Vita

LittleBigPlanet Karting and LittleBigPlanet Vita just got even more exciting, with Sony announcing costume cross-compatibility. If you’ve already got a comprehensive wardrobe for your Sackboy (or Sackgirl) in either LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2, you’ll be able to access the whole thing in either of the two new games.

…and if your wardrobe isn’t so full just yet, you’ll only need to buy the costume once, and it will mysteriously appear in LittleBigPlanet 2, LBP Karting and LBP Vita, as if by magic.

Sackboy’s Kratos Costume

Steven Isbell, LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator explains:

Customization is a BIG part of LittleBigPlanet. Being able to modify your Sackboy or Sackgirl is a way for players to personalize their experience, while also bringing a variety of different franchises and entertainment properties into the LBP universe. We recognize this and have decided that we can’t ask all you LittleBigPlaneteers to fully enjoy the upcoming LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting without an amazing assortment of costumes at your disposal.

If you’re not into costumes, one wonders why you are playing anything to do with Sackboy. Look at all of the options! …unfortunately, Isbell reveals that these won’t all be available from launch. There are – as he says – “a heck of a lot of costumes”, so it’ll take the team a little while to get everything neatly laundered and packaged for the new platforms. Some will be available on day one, while others will follow soon after, we’re told.

Further fine print: The two Assassin’s Creed themed costumes will not be available for LittleBigPlanet Karting, and neither will the April Fools Fragrance Costume. (Sorry.)

The rest though? Fair game. Find out more at the LittleBigPlanet FAQ!
