LittleBigPlanet 2: Sony announces new DLC costume packs

As if the hugely popular and critically-acclaimed LittleBigPlanet 2 game — which has received amazing review scores since it was released back in January this year (5/5 from X-Play, 9/10 from IGN and a Metacritic score of 92/100) — wasn’t big enough and exciting enough already, Sony Computer Entertainment has just announced details for several new DLC Costume packs.

According to Eric Levine (SCEA PR Manager) over on the website, the forthcoming downloadable content includes the FINAL FANTASY VII, inFAMOUS 2, Killzone 3 and Toy Story costume packs. The first DLC pack to be released this week is the inFAMOUS 2 mini-pack, which costs just $2.99 and includes costumes for Good Cole and Bad Cole, as well as a bunch of new stickers.

Those who would like to purchase the upcoming FINAL FANTASY VII pack will be pleased to know that it is due to arrive on the PlayStation Store on July 13th. This DLC pack will cost a little more at $5.99, but does include the Sephiroth, Cloud, Tifa and Aeris costumes, as well as a bonus Vincent costume. You do however have the option of buying the first four costumes individually for $1.99 each.

The Killzone 3 mini-pack on the other hand is due to arrive on July 20th, and will be priced up at $2.99. This pack not only provides players with the Hazmat Trooper and Rico costumes, it also contains new stickers. There will be a total of 3 new Toy Story DLC costume packs released (although we don’t know when at this stage), as well as a new level pack containing brand new Toy Story-themed levels for fans to play through.

In other news, LittleBigPlanet fans began voicing their concerns recently, after they discovered that the developer Media Molecule was planning on stepping away from the hugely popular franchise. While speaking with Edge Magazine at the 2011 GameLab Conference, executive producer Siobhan Reddy said that the developer is stepping away from LBP to concentrate on some new ideas.

As Jonathan Leack at notes, Media Molecule were quick to respond to the feedback from fans, by posting a message on their Twitter feed to reassure fans that they will always be involved with the LittleBigPlanet franchise. They also mentioned that a lot more fun is to be had with the game, which of course includes the much-anticipated PlayStation Move patch.

What do you think Media Molecule’s next project will be?
