By Nick Breckon, Apr 09, 2009 11:37am PDT The next month's worth of LittleBigPlanet content has been revealed in a post by Sony on the PlayStation blog.

Sackboys will have plenty of fashion options this month, with costume packs based on Rag Doll Kung Fu, Patapon, Heavenly Sword, and two packs based on Norse and Egyptian mythology.

The month will also bring the Creator Pack 1, which adds an infinite lives checkpoint, tetherless jetpack, and other toys. Additionally, a "Cornish Yarg" patch will includes a few fixes and tweaks, as well as a new in-game custom music player.

LittleBigPlanet Content For April
It’s that time again! Here’s the scheduled release dates for additional LittleBigPlanet content for the rest of this month and the start of May.

Those of you who keep an eye on these updates will notice that the Heavenly Sword mini-pack has moved back by two weeks, but in its place is the extremely cool Rag Doll Kung Fu costume pack, which now launches on the same day that the game comes to the PlayStation Store.

The big news for April however is that the 1.12 “Cornish Yarg” update is being released, which provides some new features along with some fixes to problems reported by the community. Also included in this update is Creator Pack 1 that contains some very cool new devices, gizmos and tools to help you build your levels. Should the date for the release of the Cornish Yarg update change, we’ll inform you ahead of time, but right now it’s looking good to go for April 16th!
