LittleBigPlanet 2 release date and goodies announced

Sony has went and announced a number of things for LittleBigPlanet 2, including the release date and all the ridiculously cute goodies you’ll find in the pre-order bundle and collector’s edition.

First thing’s first: LPB 2 is coming out November 16th. Take this time to mark your calendars.

As for pre-order bonuses, Sony’s got a few choices to give us, depending on the retailer. Currently, players have three separate retailers to choose from, each with their own unique offerings.

Pre-orders from will net players two costumes of Ratchet and Clank from the Ratchet and Clank series, BestBuy and have the three-eyed claw aliens from Toy Story, and GameStop and will be giving out a TRON: Legacy costume. In addition, all three retailers will also give out an “Even More Animals” costume bundle, featuring cute renditions of very un-cute animals such as the cobra, vulture, mandrill, and crocodile.

Sony also teases DLC plans, unveiling one of the future downloadable costumes to be Gonzo the Muppet.

The collector’s edition is also no slouch, offering players an avalanche of goodies at a price of $79.99. Players can expect to get a copy of the game, a 7″ Sackboy plushie, “Sackboy-ified” bookends, all of the previously mentioned pre-order costumes, two additional costumes resembling Jak and Daxter from the Jak and Daxter series, and five LBP-themed PSN avatars.

Currently, there are no such plans for our friends in the UK, but Sony does promise future announcements for European, Canadian, and Latin American fans.
