LittleBigThings: Squeenix Finally Does Something
Remember waaaaaaaaaay back in the beforetimes of 2008, when both Old Snake and Sephiroth were shown off in LittleBigPlanet to show off third-party support with the game, via costume and level packs? Remember when Old Snake got his time in LBP, via the first and likely biggest Level/Costume/Tool pack and we all loved it? Sure you do; it brought us hours of fun with the Paintinator and the ability to dress up like MGS4 Snake to recreate our favorite moments from the game. Er....just me? Well...well, alright then.
Remember when Squeenix's pack showed up? No? Well, that's because it never did. Which is only finally being fixed now. Coming out next week, on July 13th, (which is a day after Catherine's demo is to go up, apparently, maybe it's a special update? Or maybe someone's got the dates tossed up Update!: Actually, it's the blogpost that's tossed up. I imagine they copied it wholesale from the EU Blog and just changed the currency signs.) is the Final Fantasy 7 Costume pack, including Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, Vincent and of course, Sephiroth for $5.99. That's right, it's just a costume pack. It took Squeenix three years to get their costumes done well enough and go through MM's methods to get them in the LittleBigPlanet universe. Which....well, that's right on target with Squeenix Time. (Not quite as long as Valve Time, but quality is not assured.)
Evil Cole flavor as well as including some stickers) Following FF7 is a Killzone 3 pack which will also have two costumes and stickers for the same price as the inFamous 2 pack of $2.99. After that, sometime, will be the Toy Story pack with costumes -and- levels (and likely stickers as well), to be followed sometime by a Motorstorm Apocalypse pack of some sort. Not to mention the Playstation Move-themed Pack which will be out sometime....soon-ish? Yeah, let's go with soon-ish.
I am an absolute whore for LittleBigPlanet themed things, so I'm not too particularly ashamed to admit a good bit of these things will be mine. (Definitely the FF7 and inFamous 2 things, as well as the original inFamous costumes) In my defense, I will remind everyone that the costumes will be compatible with the Playstation Vita version of the game as well, which we all know I will be playing the shit out of.
