Sony has finally nailed down the date -- November 16 -- for Media Molecule's epic sequel, LittleBigPlanet 2.
Also revealed were the requisite retailer-specific pre-order items. Go with Amazon, get six Sackboy costumes -- one of Ratchet, one of Clank, and four "Animal Costumes." Go with Best Buy, get an exclusive "Alien" from Toy Story 3 costume, along with four costumes from the "Even More Animals" pack. GameStop pre-order customers get another Disney-related exclusive, a Tron: Legacy Sackboy outfit, along with that "Even More Animals" pack.
Of course, there's also a collector's edition, and it looks pretty damned great. Retailing for $79.99, the package will come with a copy of the game, a 7" Sackboy plushy, "game ends" (book ends for your game boxes), and a ton of DLC (some of it exclusive to the collector's), detailed after the jump. Click on it and go see it… now!
