LBP2 Delayed In Japan, But Sticking To November In US?
Update: Unfortunately, Media Molecule has confirmed LittleBigPlanet 2 has been delayed worldwide until January 2011, citing the need for extra time to create "the best experience possible."
Arguably the biggest PlayStation 3 exclusive for the holiday season - Gran Turismo 5 might take the cake - LittleBigPlanet 2 is likely a legitimate Game of the Year contender.
...but which year? While the beta testing is in full swing, it's possible that developer Media Molecule may have spotted something that would cause a delay. According to the game's official Japanese website, as cited by GameSpot, the hotly anticipated sequel now has a 2011 release window. LBP2 is supposed to be Move-compatible and up until now, it has held a November 2010 launch date for both North America and Japan. So what's the deal? Does this delay affect the US and Europe as well? The good news is that no, it doesn't appear likely at this point in time. No other source can be found that hints at a LBP2 delay for the NA/EU regions, and retailers like GameStop still say the game will be here on November 16. We're hoping it stays that way; Sony really needs this game for the upcoming holiday season, and we've already got plenty of huge titles in the first part of 2011, Killzone 3 included.
We'll keep an eye on things and let you know but for now, just cross your fingers that LittleBigPlanet 2 sticks for the US.
