The lights are on
The July release date is incorrect. It has been officially announced via PlayStation.Blog that LittleBigPlanet 2 will arrive this winter! So far, I've only heard a couple things about the sequal:
1) The game will feature a new graphics engine which will even apply to the current user-created levels.
2) Stephen Fry will return as the game's narrator!
3) You can compose your own music, make cutscenes (or even short movies!), and make actual characters (instead of mindless robots).
4) Finally, users can make actual games instead of game levels.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm extremely excited about this. I can't wait to see how Media Molecule can top the original!
