LittleBigPlanet 3 was three years in development


LittleBigPlanet 3 looks fantastic and so it should because it has been in development for 3 years.

In the latest issue of MCV (via Videogamer) design director Damian Hosen talked about the development of the title and how it was helped along by original creator Media Molecule.



"It's a series that's been built from an entirely fresh perspective. That's true of all Media Molecule games. The studio's never going to make anything like anyone else. And part of that is that they set themselves very clear targets and goals when they start making something and have a very clear unique vision.

"So when we went to talk to Mark Healey [Media Molecule creative director] and Kareem Ettouney [Media Molecule art director] it was really cool to get a sense of what they were thinking, how the game came out like it did, what was their vision for it, what limitations did they put on themselves. Kareem said to me that the Story Mode that you release is an example of what you make in Create mode. That made everything make sense. It all just clipped into place. I can completely understand why the game was like it was. Those personal insights we got from them early on were invaluable in shaping how we made the rest of the game."

"We've been working on the game for three years now, we've spent a lot of time to add in a lot of stuff. We're making really a fun charming platform game that anyone can enjoy."

We've heard many people say that Sony has no 'AAA' games for this part of the year, but we are guessing that SCEE would disagree with this given the focus on LittleBigPlanet and the money that will no doubt be spent promoting it.

It really is a fantastic looking title and certainly one to look out for this November.

That would mean that Little Big Planet 3 started shortly after Little Big Planet 2, i found this video comparing the graphics of both the PS3 and PS4 versions. It looks great and i can't wait to get it next month, it's one of the only games i actually want. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXKXMHXH0Ec

I daresay a fair amount of the time it spent in development was back when it was still LBP Hub. Regardless, looking forward to it, the footage so far has looked like a lot of fun and the new creation tools sound great.

Is Little Big Planet Hub still coming out or has it been cancelled now?
