Sackboy! He delighted the world with LittleBigPlanet. Then disappointed us all with the delay of LittleBigPlanet 2, and now, he's appearing in 3D Dot Game Heroes! Playing as a pixelated version of the PlayStation 3's favorite mascot may not make up for a couple extra months of waiting for the big sequel, but it's a start.
"We can think of no more fitting a character to feature than one that has become synonymous with creativity and imagination in gaming: Sackboy," said Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus. "Now, people who start up their copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes can begin their adventures through the grand Kingdom of Dotnia with one of gaming's most recognizable icons!"
Sacky isn't the only addition to the game -- fifty fan and staff created heroes, the ability to carry over certain swords in New Game+, and adjustments to the completion times for the Dash Circuit mini game have also been added, as well as bug fixes.
I liked 3D Dot Game Heroes a lot, but I played it as a dude who looks like Santa Claus, so I don't need no Sackboy!
