LittleBigPlanet 3 will release on PS4 and PS3 with new characters towards the end of this year and of course you will see Sackboy return, but sadly Sackworm didn’t make it to the new title.
New LittleBigPlanet 3 characters include Toggle, Swoop, and Oddsock each with a different play style. We are yet to see how much graphics and gameplay will differ between PS3 and PS4.
The characters start life as a silhouette when developing the new game and at this point a cut had to be made. SCE Worldwide Studios explained that Sackworm didn’t make the grade, so you won’t be seeing him in LBP 3.
Pete Smith, Sony Xdev Europe, explained the new LittleBigPlanet 3 characters need “to be game changers” with personality, and as such it seemed like Sackworm didn’t fit in the new world.

Toggle is the largest character but he can also turn into a much smaller form, Oddsock is extremely fast with 4 legs and the ability to wall slide/jump, and Swoop will help players reach certain locations when they need to fly.
