PlayStation All-Stars Bio: Sackboy

Today we bring you yet another PS All-Stars Battle Royale character bio, presented by the Daily Reaction team of Seb and Dan. This time we show you the origin, quotes, guest appearances, and move list for one Sony’s latest mascots, Sackboy.

Name: Sackboy

Origin: Before becoming the figurehead for Sony’s PS3, Sackboy conceptually started life as concept drawing called ‘YellowHead’. A cartoon character that consisted of a geometric figure constructed out of a pink square body and yellow triangular head. Over time this cartoon took a life of its own, evolving slowing on the idea of a handmade protagonist that would contain features like buttons and stitches. But it was not until this character took on a zipper that his true personality started to show, as Sackboy was born under the concept of him being able to change himself by having access to his own zipper.

Appeared in: LittleBigPlanet (PS3, PSP), LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves, LittleBigPlanet Karting
