LittleBigSequel Already In Development
The user-created content of LittleBigPlanet should give the action platformer a very long shelf life but eventually another game will come along that makes you retire LBP to the darkest corner of your shelf. That game, of course, is LittleBigPlanet 2, which Media Molecule is already working on.
MM technical director Alex Evans revealed to BBC that the British developer is currently working on the LBP sequel. They and Sony obviously smell a gold mine here. The article also mentions that the two companies are "in talks to turn it into a franchise that could mean spin offs including comics, cartoons, and action figures as well as a publishing platform itself for other brands' content."
Wait, really high-profile, console exclusive games get sequels? It's a bit of a "dog bites man" story but worth noting nonetheless. LBP2's in its very early stages so there's no actual information on the game but one would hope that it will possess backward compatibility with user-created content from LBP. LittleBigPlanet, that dusty, old first installment of the series, hits stores this week (give or take a few days).
