Finn and Friends Join LittleBigPlanet 3
Out of nowhere, we have Adventure Time-themed DLC for LittleBigPlanet 3! No announcement, hype, build-up, etc. from either Pen Ward or Sumo Digital. A welcome surprise, to be sure; just one heck of a well-kept secret. The Adventure Time Level Kit has 16 exclusive Materials, 4 Objects, 25 Decorations, 81 Stickers, and several new tracks by Adventure Time composer Tim Kiefer.

Oh my God it’s so cute. Look at it. I mean, Sack-Jake is kind of frightening (I don’t know, he looks like a lungfish to me or something) but otherwise: so frigging cute. We can see Sackfolk versions of Finn, Fionna, Ice King, Gunter, Jake, and the Cosmic Owl in the trailer - all playable! Bizarrely, Fionna comes as a bonus with purchase of the Level Kit, separate from the other costumes. You can also use the Adventure Time costumes as PlayStation Avatars; PlayStation tells us how in this blog post.
The Adventure Time Level Kit is $5, $6 for the Costume Pack, or $2 for each costume individually. Adventure Time games have been more miss than hit; if this DLC counts, then whee! We have a good Adventure Time game!
