The next LittleBigPlanet game launches with the PlayStation 5 later this week on November 12. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a spinoff which trades side-scrolling for 3D platforming, will also release on PS4 on the same day. Though it’s not LittleBigPlanet 4, Sackboy does appear to be the closest to a mainline entry we’ve seen of the numerous spin-offs. Multiple editions for PS4 and PS5 have been revealed, and you can get a preorder bonus by purchasing your copy early.
For those who don’t plan on getting the PS5 at launch, you should know that the PS4 version has a free upgrade to the PS5 edition. The only exception to the free upgrade offer is if you purchase a physical PS4 edition of Sackboy and the PS5 Digital Edition.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure preorder bonus
All editions of Sackboy for PS4 and PS5 come with Sackboy: A Big Adventure: The Gathering Storm, a digital comic that explores the backstory of Scarlet, Sackboy’s mentor.
Developed by Sumo Digital, Sackboy: A Big Adventure takes on an isometric 3D perspective similar to what we saw in Super Mario 3D World. Throughout the adventure, you’ll jump your way through 3D levels, topple baddies, and solve puzzles. Sackboy will have new moves and a collection of gadgets to utilize on his journey.
In the announcement trailer, we saw that Sackboy will be accompanied by a pirate, though her identity and story details have yet to be revealed.
