LittleBigPlanet Vita: What you need to know
The PS Vita is not just for adults but also children as well, which is why it’s important for developers to get LittleBigPlanet on Sony’s latest handheld games console. There have been four other versions of the game before it but this is the first to take full advantage of Vita’s various features, which will make it very unique.
We can expect to see graphics on a level with the PS3 but will go a step further, as it will not be a port like some of the other games already available for the Vita. There is currently no release date but we can tell you that it will be in the coming months, maybe they should launch this title in the build-up to the holiday season along with Call of Duty, as this will send Vita sales through the roof?
The portable version of LBP will support up to 4 Players Online & Offline, but where this version will excel is how you will be able to not only utilize the jog controllers but also the multi-touch display as well. Players can also use the rear touchpanel to push objects towards them or for creating platforms as well.
What will make the PS Vita version of LittleBigPlanet so special is how the user will be able to use the touch-screen display to draw objects onto the screen, which will then become part of the game. There is also a bunch of creation tools like those from LBP 2, which will also be made easier with the use of the touch controls.
You can also use the front and rear camera to take photos of objects, which can then be integrated within your level and is seen as a much easier way to add new content when compared to the PlayStation 3 version. Don’t worry about those millions of creations that have been uploaded for the LittleBigPlanet series, as you will still be able to download and play them on the Vita.
Not much else is known but we do have the launch trailer for you below, along with some gameplay footage and a demo as well. In other news it seems as though rumors of LittleBigPlanet Karting will not be coming to the Vita, although it will still be released on the PS3.
However, maybe we should not rule out the prospect of Sack Boy racing his way around a track on the Vita, as this could be another perfect title for kids and could be the perfect rival for the 3DS, because Nintendo know that Mario fans wanted a kart version of their most popular character.
