Sackboy: A Big Adventure Is Announced During The PS5 Reveal

One of the big surprises from the PS5 Reveal livestream was Sony Interactive Entertainment and Sumo Digital revealing Sackboy: A Big Adventure. In what is clearly a spinoff of LittleBigPlanet, this is the first game to feature the character since 2014 with LittleBigPlanet 3. But the company didn't really have a lot to say on it, surprisingly enough, releasing only this short piece of info with the trailer. But the trailer speaks for itself a lot better than this short descriptor.

Iconic PlayStation hero Sackboy returns in an all-new 3D adventure with a deeply immersive and expressive control scheme. Players can go on this epic platforming journey solo-style, or they can team up with friends for collaborative, chaotic multiplayer fun.

First off, one of the big changes is that the game is in 3D, as opposed to 2.5 which it had been doing for most of the series. Second, the game allowed for up to four players in multiplayer fun, though it's not clear so to whether or not that's for multiplayer battles and puzzles or if you'll be working as a team to defeat the primary platforming campaign. It also appears the game will be introducing a number of new characters, which just by the look of them, we look forward to seeing the crazy ways people end up cosplaying these new additions. Based on the fact that Sony didn't give a release date for this or even tried to elaborate on it, we're guessing you won't see Sackboy: A Big Adventure until 2021. For now, enjoy the trailer below!
