Sackboy is back in a new, big adventure. Literally, considering it's titled Sackboy A Big Adventure

Developer Sumo Digital is once again handling cute little sackboy in a brand new platform adventure, where the beloved mascot of the LittleBigPlanet series is taken out of the creative confines of their series and thrusted into a world filled with hazards, enemies and platforms to jump on.


Much of the trailer is showing us Sackboy in action, complete with the aesthetic somewhat familiar to anyone who is a fan of LittleBigPlanet. The cardboard-like world Sackboy inhabits is an arts and crafts paradise, with enough felt and fabric to go around in the world around you.

Co-op gameplay was also shown with a fully decked out sackgirl character. Tons of other little costumes and sackboys also joined in the fun for a four-player style co-op experience, reminiscent in the vein of The New Super Mario Bros. titles on the Wii and Wii U. There is no indication if it is competitive co-op or not, though it looks like A Big Adventure will be a fun little romp for the whole family to play together in between the more hardcore games on the system.  

This is the first game in six years to feature Sackboy in any context, and the first official spin-off title from the LittleBigPlanet series. It is also the second game in the franchise to be handled by Sumo Digital, after original developer Media Molecule bowed out early in the development of LittleBigPlanet 3

There is no official release date for Sackboy A Big Adventure, but whatever shape the game does take it will no doubt be a fun and colorful addition to the PlayStation 5 library.
