LittleBigPlanet 2 in Development, Sony Considering LittleBigPlanet Cartoon Series

Media Molecule has already begun crafting a sequel to its long-awaited PlayStation 3 platformer LittleBigPlanet, which makes its official retail debut in the US this week. nope

Speaking with BBC News, the studio confirmed that a sequel is in development for the game, which allows players to make their own levels and share them online.

Beyond the sequel, Media Molecule and publisher Sony are investigating various spin-offs, such as LittleBigPlanet-branded comics, cartoons, and action figures.

In addition, technical director Alex Evans noted that some of the user-created levels seen in the recent beta--all of which will be available for download when the servers switch on--were better and harder than some of those made internally by the team.
