Minecraft PlayStation Editions Getting LittleBigPlanet Mash-Up Pack, Free Skin Pack This Week

Just a day after revealing that LittleBigPlanet was the clear winner in their poll for which PlayStation franchises fans would like to see receive a Minecraft Skin Pack, 4J Studios announced that a LittleBigPlanet Mash-up Pack is launching tomorrow, July 1:

Good news for LittleBigPlanet fans on Sony’s consoles! A brand-new mash-up pack featuring Sackboy, Sackgirl OddSock, Toggle, Swoop, and many more is on its way to Minecraft on PlayStation.

Mash up packs let you change the way Minecraft looks. This one lets you LittleBigPlanet-ify your Minecraft world with textures, characters and creatures from Media Molecule’s adorable platformer. It even comes with a pre-build landscape and some catchy tunes taken straight from the game. What more could a Little Big Minecrafter possibly want?

The pack will be available for £3.29/€3.99 to owners of Minecraft: PS4 Edition, Minecraft: PS3 Edition, and Minecraft: PS Vita Edition.

If you’re wondering how they made the pack so quickly, 4J Studios said, “The 4J Art team have been working on it for a while.” The LittleBigPlanet Twitter account added, “You would think that we were actually planning the big surprise!”


Additionally, all platforms will receive the Minecon 2015 Skin Pack beginning on July 1 for free:

Even more DLC news for y’all! To celebrate the awesomeness that is next week’s Minecon 2015, we’re releasing a free bundle of skins for both Sony and Microsoft consoles. This pack is extra-special because it features Alex and Steve wearing a selection of smart capes.

It’ll be available for just 15 days, so don’t forget to download it once it’s live tomorrow.

As well, Minecraft update 1.17 goes live on PlayStation tomorrow. We’ll have full details soon, but the update will add new blocks, a ton of new game options (change game mode, difficulty, time, and more without leaving your game session), classic crafting, and more.
