Sackboy is back for some extra user-generated adventures.

Sony will release LittleBigPlanet 2: Extras Edition for the PlayStation 3 in February, the company announced today. This new release combines the original LittleBigPlanet 2, a puzzle-platformer that came out in 2011, with a variety of add-on packs and bonus content.

The Extras Edition comes with the Cross-Controller Pack, which brings LittleBigPlanet connectivity between the PS3 and PS Vita. As you can see in the video below, it works a lot like a Wii U game:

LittleBigPlanet 2: Extras Edition also comes with Move Pack: Rise of the Cakeling. This content enables PlayStation Move support for a motion-controlled campaign.

Sony also packed this disc full of costume bundles. Sackboy can dress up as Kermit, a skier, or a Siamese cat with the following:

  • The Muppets Costume Pack 1
  • Weekend Pursuits Costume Pack
  • Deep Sea Adventures Costume Pack
  • Sports Costume Pack
  • Dogs Costume Pack
  • Cats Costume Pack

Naturally, beyond all of this included content, LittleBigPlanet 2 is still open to the nearly endless number of user-generated levels. So far, gamers built over 7.5 million levels for others to play in. This newest edition to the LittleBigPlanet series will likely help push that number even higher.
