Juicy information about the upcoming update patch for LittleBigPlanet known as “Cornish Yarg” has been revealed In the latest Media Molecule podcast.
Some new features, not previously known have been revealed:
- Global lighting controllers (as first seen in the Metal Gear Solid pack)
- In-game XMB music available in create mode (“listen while you work”)
The patch is currently in QA and apparently awaiting feedback from Sony - the final stages of release. Fingers crossed for no major bugs and we should have this very soon.
The Cornish Yarg patch was originally slated for an end of January release, but it’s only now that we have this glimpse of a true release date. It’s also thought that online create mode will be coming with Cornish Yarg, though this is unconfirmed.
It’s also worth mentioning that the podcast clarifies that the Frying pan slap has been available in game for a while now, and makes a Shooting-stars style comedy CLANG! sound when you slap other players with it.
Head over to Media Molecule to listen to the latest and greatest podcast, order find it in the iTunes podcast library.
Thanks for Pixelledfox for the heads up. We were still syncing our iPods for some bedtime listening
Sam Protagonist has said on the LittleBigWorkshop forums that Cornish Yarg will not contain the much anticipated online create. A previously leaked updates schedule suggested that online create would be in Cornish Yarg, but Sam says that this is not the case:
Online creating is still coming but it is not part of the Cornish Yarg update. It is planned to be released as part of an update that also tackles some of the latency issues players have encountered to date.
There’ll be plenty more news on the subject when it’s a little closer to being ready to go.
This would suggest that online create would be coming in the “TCP/IP” networking patch to be known as Leerdammer.
