LittleBigPlanet 2 is the follow-up to the smash hit from developer Media Molecule, and is exclusive to the Playstation 3. Players guide Sackboy on his quest to save Craftworld from the vile beast known as Negativitron; the story can be played solo or with friends (the game supports two to four players either online or locally). Along with the campaign comes the ability to create your own levels, which returns from the first game, but Media Molecule has increased the amount of customization this time, and has also streamlined the process to make it more accessible to new players. Entire games can be crafted, with players having control of every aspect of the design, including composing your own music.
LittleBigPlanet 2 is set for release on January 18th. Check out the full review here!
Okamiden is Capcom's follow-up to the PS2 and Wii hit Okami, and as before unique controls will be a major feature of the game. Players will take the role of Chibiterasu, a young sun god who is tasked with protecting the land. As in Okami, where the protagonist took the form of a wolf, young Chibiterasu also appears in wolf-form, but as a pup. Once again, the world has been drained of its color, and players will use the Celestial Brush to return vibrancy to the land. The game makes use of the DS's stylus controls, as players will make gestures and draw specific shapes or patterns on the screen to solve puzzles and complete missions. Along the way, Chibiterasu will encounter various partners (with different abilities) who will aid in the journey. The original was a success, and chances are that the follow-up will please fans as well.
Okamiden is exclusive to the Nintendo DS and is slated for release in the US on March 15th. Look here to read our full preview.
