Mm’s Evans Hints at LittleBigPlanet 2, Would “love” a Sequel

littlebigplanet-2LittleBigPlanet hasn’t been out for a year yet, and already we’re talking about a sequel.

Media Molecule’s Alex Evans has gone on record, in an interview with GI, about digital distribution and user-made DLC, but there was point brought up near the end of the interview about LBP 2.

Well, I’d love there to be a sequel, put it that way. But that’s not an announcement – although I will say that the entire team is working on LBP

Evans also talked about the possibillty of more accessable tools for players in creating levels in LittleBigPlanet.

We originally started with a shotgun and a hair dryer, and it mutated a lot… One of the things we’re focusing on next is looking at stuff that insane – generally French and Japanese – people have built, and then making that more accessible, just making some of the ideas that are possible, easier.

The second side of it is that at the moment you can exchange objects via PSN messages. One of the original ideas that was axed from the original game was that you could publish objects from the game online, not just levels, and you’d be credited with the use of those objects.

I think something like that will really boost it – if you’re just a beginner user, you can go and browse not just for levels, but for cars, let’s say. Take that, sticker it up, and you’re done – and that will change the barriers to entry.

So both of those things – changing the tools themselves, and changing how you share – are coming.
