Little Big Planet 2 Shows Off Some Release Details, Preorder Skins

It looks like the release for Little big Planet 2 has snuck up on us in adorable little Sackboy costumes. Media Molecule, the brilliant minds behind the Little Big Planet series, has announced for Comic Con that Little Big Planet 2 will be released this November 16th to be exact. For those keeping track, that's relatively soon - and just in time for the holiday season.

In order to make your holidays complete with additional costumes, there are also a few different pre-order incentives so you can add the game to your holiday wish-list early to take advantage of some great costumes from various retailers, as well as the Disney/Pixar themed "Even More Animals costumes.'

The Even More Animals are available in each of the pre-order bonuses along with the one store exclusive, and they look like this:

Along with the Even More Animals pack of four skins, the following skins are available from individual retailers.'s preorder, Ratchet and Clank skins.


Best Buy/Best will net you the Toy Story Alien. Ooooohhhhh.

Gamestop/ gears you up with Tron.


And just to whet your appetite, it looks like there will be a series of Muppets released on the PSN store shortly after the games release. For those that are just Little Big Planet 2 fanatics, there is also a huge collectors edition that includes all of these skins, as well as a Sackboy plushy, a copy of Little Big Planet 2, book/game ends, etc.


Media Molecule went all out on this highly anticipated sequel, but hopefully all of these skins become available for download on the PSN after some amount of time - after all, you can't pre-order the game in 3 different places, that's just not cost effective. I suppose we'll find out some time after November 16th, can't wait to see what happens.
