LittleBigPlanet 2 now entering orbit on January 18

Yesterday Media Molecule, developer of the original award-winning LittleBigPlanet and its sequel, delayed LittleBigPlanet 2 from this holiday season to sometime in January 2011.

Now, according to a post on the official Sony blog, the game is officially slated to hit the PlayStation 3, exclusively of course, on January 18, 2011.

That’s kind of a huge bummer. I’m all for getting the most polished game as can be, but I had it pre-ordered, as a gift for my 12-year-old sister for Christmas. Now I’m gonna be “that brother.” Dammit.
