LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule's PlayStation 3 customizable platformer, is off to production and will land on North American store shelves on October 21. Europe will be just a few days later but falling in the same week.

Quoth the official PlayStation Blog: "We've received great news from Media Molecule--the game code has gone 'GOLD' and we've started manufacturing the PS3 cases, manuals and most importantly Blu-ray discs. Meaning, LittleBigPlanet will hit stores in North & Latin America on October 21 (with Europe releasing the same week)."


In celebration of the highly anticipated game, there will be a pair of free bonus downloads available for the first week after the game's release. "LBP fans everywhere will be able to download a free, limited edition Spacesuit costume for your SackBoy" in addition to "a rare 'I was there Week One' t-shirt" for the game's sack-inspired protagonist.
