LittleBigPlanet 2 dated, again

New release date for sequel to PS3 bestseller

Save that Christmas money, because LBP2 is just around the corner.

Sure, like us you were hoping Sony would pull its finger out and get LittleBigPlanet 2 onto PS3s the world over before Christmas. But at least now it’s been slapped with an official release date, the sequel to the awesome original landing 21 January here in the UK.

Continental gamers will get a taste two days earlier, with Australia and New Zealand feeling the love 24 hours before we get a chance to play nice.

LBP2 had been pegged for release at the end of November, but fell prey to delays. But with just four weeks to go until release, hopefully nothing untoward will stop it hitting shelves just in time to help beat the January blues.

LBP2 promises even more customisable levels, themed costumes and sharing skills. For more on this and other gaming stories, hit up our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
