Snake And Sephiroth SackBoys!
If you didn't think there'd be another LittleBigPlanet presentation at the Tokyo Game Show - as there was at E3 - you clearly haven't been paying attention. Sony wants SackBoy to enter the presidential elections as a last-second nominee; didn't you realize that?
Anyway, it seems everyone is getting in on the fun. Towards the end of the presentation, our boy Hideo Kojima took the stage and although we had hoped he'd magically talk about MGS5, he had something else to present: a Solid Snake SackBoy! Yep, the picture is right here, and as you can see, Snake is a bad-ass even in "sack" form. The other customized unveiling might be even bigger, depending on your past gaming preferences. Check the cool pics over at the official PlayStation blog, and you'll see another SackBoy invention next to Snake...who's that? Is that the greatest video game villain of all time, Sephiroth? Yes, it is! They're pulling out all the stops in promoting LBP, and we doubt it's going to end there. We've recently heard rumors that Disney might get in on the SackBoy fun, and you have to admit, the possibilities are endless. What's next? SackBoys and SackGirls based on Hollywood movie stars? Historical icons? Barnyard animals? Who knows?
Anyway, it's just more PR fun, which we don't mind. Both Snake and Sephiroth should be available to download as extras (millions of extras for this game, we're almost positive), and we'll toss up any new LBP updates as they become available. We know you love 'em.
