Sackboy character spied in Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic

Mar 12th 2009 - 6:12 PM

Whilst watching the latest trailer for Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic, we’ve noticed that Sackboy makes an appearance!
We’re hoping he’s playable of course, but then we see little reason that he’d appear in a trailer for the game if he wasn’t.

Could you karate chop that little face?

Seeing Sackboy in Rag Doll Kung Fu kind of completes a circle of zen.  The original Rag Doll Kung Fu, released in 2005 was designed by Mark Healey, and worked upon by all the other founding members of Media Molecule: Alex Evans, Dave Smith and Kareem Ettouney.

Head on over to the PlayStation Blog for full details about the game and it’s March April 9th PSN release date.

The first screenshots of the rumoured Sackboy DLC content that is coming to Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf have hit the web. Suffice to say, Sackboy looks freaking awesome!

No further discussion is required, these screenshots should do the talking for themselves…

If you haven’t already got Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf, this would be a pretty good reason to pick it up.

This DLC pack with Sackboy is available in Japan from tomorrow, giving players the ability to play in a variety of Sackboy costumes. We’ll post news of release dates in Europe and North America when we hear of them…

More pics over on Kotaku.


The Sackboy DLC Pack for Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf will be available in North America and Europe from 12th March too. Yay!

Sackboy available in SingStar, more ventures coming soon

Mar 1st 2009 - 5:06 PM

Sony have for some time now been making the most of LittleBigPlanet as the ideal outlet for cross-promoting the leading games of PlayStation 3. Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter, Loco Roco, Wipeout, God of War, Heavenly Sword - just a handful of the big names which have come to LBP through costumes, levels and ‘create’ DLC.

But it works both ways, and Sackboy is starting to find his way in to other games. A Little Big Planet PlayStation Home space is already in the works, Sackboy PSN avatars are coming soon and don’t forget that last December it was rumoured that Sackboy will be coming to Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf 5.

The most recent appearance of Sackboy’s friendly face is in SingStar (yes, we play SingStar and love it very much). It’s been live for some weeks now, but you can buy a Little Big Planet wallpaper from the SingStore (99p in the UK).
The wallpaper theme allows you to play SingStar with Little Big Planet background music, an animated background of various stickers moving in and out, plus of course: Sackboy’s smiling face…

It’s a bit pricey and of course, it’s a cash in for Sony on the brand that they’ve built up for Little Big Planet, but it’s a bit of fun too. Check it out in the SingStore wallpapers section, it’s called “Little Big Wallpaper”.

Keep your eyes peeled for Little Big Planet and Sackboy appearing in yet more games as time goes by.

Sackboy heading to Hot Shots / Everybody’s Golf 5?

Dec 2nd 2008 - 8:45 PM

The Planetoid is hearing news reports from Spanish site PSnow.es that Sackboy will be available in Everybody’s Golf 5 (Hot Shots Golf 5 in U.S / Europe) as an exclusive bonus character, downloadable from the PlayStation Store on December 11th.

This will come as no surprise to regular players of the game, who in August had the chance to play with Kratos as an in game character via DLC.

PSNow.es is currently seeking confirmation of this news however as it is based on pure rumour - we’re not even sure where they got this news from - though they were one of the first sites to discover the Street Fighter II DLC costumes for LBP, so we’re trusting their sources.

It might be worth keeping an eye on the Official Everybody’s Golf 5 site for news on this, either in Japan, U.S or EU.
