In light of the disheartening delay of LittleBigPlanet 2 to January 2011, there is some good news in store for Sackboy’s biggest fans t0 serve as a consolation. Thankfully, this one also comes in the form of a bright, customizable, and light-hearted fun title for the PlayStation 3.
We’ve all seen the beloved Sackboy recreated retroactively but we have never seen him in stunning 8-bit HD–not like this anyways. Officially announced and released by developer and publisher Atlus, creators of PS3-exclusive 3D Dot Game Heroes, a new update has hit the online servers containing Media Molecule‘s staple creation, Sackboy.
As seen in the screenshot above, everyone’s favorite PS3 character (next to Kratos of course) has been remodeled using the tools available to the residents of the Dotnia Kingdom. According to Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus, Aram Jabbari:
“We can think of no more fitting a character to feature than one that has become synonymous with creativity and imagination in gaming: Sackboy. Now, people who start up their copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes can begin their adventures through the grand Kingdom of Dotnia with one of gaming’s most recognizable icons!”
