SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has posted up some LittleBigPlanet updates today alongside video footage and details on Bounce Pads, the LBP2 Beta and more!
To quote: Tons of cool new videos to share today, starting with a new LittleBigPlanet 2 featurette.
Featurette: Bounce Pads
Many of you wanted to see more uses of the new Bounce Pads in LittleBigPlanet 2 and in our latest featurette, we highlight its use with a little creation of our own.
Coming Soon: New LittleBigPlanet PSP Story levels courtesy of our fans!
We can honestly say that we didn't see this coming! Introducing Kindred, "a collaborative project that introduces a brand new story level series to the PSP community."
Kindred is a completely new storyline developed by some fabulous Creators over on LBPCentral. In addition to the teaser trailer, we love the mini-marketing teaser posters. Find out more at their main page.
To the Kindred team: amazingflyingpoo, Arrestor/Maboe84, BlueBulletBill, CyberSora, Domick12, Fastbro, jeffcu28, Lleonard Pler/Lleonard, salieri/SalieriAAX, Spark15, Taffey/tsr13, VelcroJonze. That's quite a team you guys have assembled!
We've come to know your talent and individual styles through all the community competitions, and some of you have already received Sackies from us for your hard work. We look forward to seeing this project when its done.
Introducing "LBP Bloggies"
Thanks to our friends at Sony Electronics, we're rolling out little series called "LBP Bloggies". Recently, with a Bloggie HD in hand at our recent LBP2/PAX Community Corner, we wanted to showcase all the cool games/levels that were being made from our hand-picked community Creators.
Here's our first showing off Morgana25?s simple, yet beautifully designed PAX maze level. (please excuse my high-pitched nasally voice)
More PAX/LBP Bloggies to come, and stay tuned for opportunities to join our LBP Bloggie team.
AND FINALLY... LittleBigPlanet 2 U.S. online beta
Good news...the 2nd phase of our online beta will be ready next week. This phase will be a small phase, with invites going to a special mix of LBP contributors, DLC owners and PlayStation Plus members, so be on the lookout for an e-mail soon with your beta code. Don't worry: there are more beta phases in the works, so if you don't get in next week, we'll keep you posted on following phases.
