Okay, LittleBigPlanet fans: it's everything you wanted to know about the sequel. Well, almost everything.
LittleBigPlanet 2 has just passed the Alpha stage of development and now, Media Molecule is ready to reveal the latest info: firstly, we now have a finalized release date of November 16, which is perfect timing for the holiday rush.
