The beta testing period of LittleBigPlanet 2 is in full swing, which means videos of what the lucky community members have been up to are starting to appear online. These videos show that the LittleBigPlanet 2 community has already been extremely creative and cements the idea that LittleBigPlanet 2 could be the Train2Game students dream ticket.
In this video, a LittleBigPlanet 2 beta tester has created a beat up, based around Guile’s Street Fighter II stage. The level includes the plane and a crowd of on looks that not only perform their own actions, but can also be unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of attacks from Sackboy versions of Guile, Ken and Zangeif.
Another LittleBigPlanet 2 beta video that shows just how flexible the creation tools in the game can be is ‘Vietnam: First Person Shooter’ So this LittleBigPlanet 2 custom level doesn’t have the constant threat of death that you’d find in a Call of Duty: Black Ops’ or Medal of Honor, but it does look like a lot of fun. You have to admire the detail that’s gone into creating a LittleBigPlanet 2 played from a first person perspective; you can even see stitches in Sackboys hand!
LittleBigPlanet 2 is scheduled for release in the United States on November 16th, so hopefully we’ll have it in Europe at around the same time. The good news is that you don’t necessarily have to wait until mid-November to get your hands on LittleBigPlanet 2.
