We have some really exciting news now for those of you that own a copy of Media Molecule’s hugely popular puzzle-platformer game LittleBigPlanet 2 (commonly abbreviated to LBP2), as we’ve just discovered that the upcoming PlayStation Move Pack DLC — said to be LittleBigPlanet’s biggest downloadable content pack so far – has now been detailed.
As noted over on the littlebigplanet.com website, the much-anticipated LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack — which is due to be released on September 9th — features a brand new story mode known as The Rise of the Cakeling. The new mode will have players trying to restore peace to Craftworld, after a rogue cake threatens it with doom and destruction.
However, players will also be provided with a brand new tool to make things a little easier. The tool in question is the Brain Crane, a new power-up that enables players to control objects with the power of their mind. Thanks to a new suite of creative tools, players will be able to create their very own PlayStation Move-enabled games.
The new ‘The Rise of the Cakeling’ story mode will provide LittleBigPlanet 2 players with five new levels, 7 new mini-games and two new cut-scenes. The DLC also includes three new gadgets for use with the PlayStation Move controller: The Paint Tool, The Move Recorder and The Movinator, 8 music sequencer tracks and four interactive music tracks.
That’s not all either, as the upcoming downloadable content pack also contains 18 materials, a new sound object containing 32 brand new sounds, a new level background, seventeen new music sequencer instruments, 41 decorations, 13 objects, six brand new costumes, 66 stickers, 39 new LittleBigPlanet pins and eleven new PlayStation 3 trophies to unlock.
You can also view screenshots, imagery and concept art for the upcoming Move Pack over on the littlebigplanet.com website. We’ve also embedded a video below this post, so you can see what’s involved in the LittleBigPlanet 2 Move Pack DLC. There is now word on how much this DLC pack will cost at this stage, but we will keep you updated if we hear anything.
