LittleBigPlanet 2 details the Grabinator

Much of the original LittleBigPlanet involved grabbing, lots and lots of grabbing. Swinging across sponges, moving bricks to reach platforms, driving vehicles, it all involved you tugging at some sort of object in the gameworld.

LittleBigPlanet 2 will also involve grabbing, but new types of grabbing. With the new Grabinator, Sackboy can lift objects right above his head and toss them in any direction. Think of them like the gauntlets in Zelda that let you lift up bigger objects. The video above shows off some of the new possibilities this power-up will bring including some one-on-one basketball.

Make sure you grab a copy of LittleBigPlanet 2 when it launches on January 18th. Grabbing. Grabbing grabbing grabbing.
