Some form of “LittleBigPlanet” gaming will be compatible with Sony’s new PlayStation Move controller, but the heat went up under speculation that a “LittleBigPlanet 2” will a part of that plan now that the title has been mentioned by someone in the know. While casually describing plans for the Move, Sony Benelux’s brand manager Folkert Langeveld seemingly mentioned “LittleBigPlanet Twee,” and it’s set off a debate over whether or not he simply misspoke while talking about “LittleBigPlanet” compatibility or intentionally acknowledged a full-on Move-ready sequel.
Though the interview was conducted in Dutch, you can analyze Langeveld’s words for yourself over at Tweakers, where the video was posted.
Given that Sony showed off “LBP” support at GDC earlier this month, I would be really surprised if something as big as a full sequel entered the conversation in such an understated manner. Furthermore, if that sequel were on the record now, it would be odd for Langeveld to refer to it and glaze over the “LBP” integration info that’s already out there.
Or, you know, maybe he wasn’t using Dutch and accidentally leaked “LittleBigPlanet Twee,” a super-cute ’80s-infused spin-off game featuring music by Twee Pop bands like The Pipettes and Belle & Sebastian.
Do you think “LittleBigPlanet 2” is really happening, are people reading too much into Langeveld’s words? Share your own take in the comment section below.
