Has Stephen Fry just given the game away and announced a proper sequel to LittleBigPlanet? “Morning all. In studio today voicing 2nd edition of a video game,” tweeted Stephen Fry this morning. “Will check if I’m allowed to say what it is…” he followed up. Yeah, you better had, because if you’re just spoiled Sony’s big E3 surprise then you won’t be flavour of the month. Of course, we all love you to bits anyway, so don’t worry.
Whilst the guys in our forum speculate on just what this could be referring to, it’s worth remembering that the recently announced PSP version of LittleBigPlanet could well have a similar voiceover to the PS3 version, so Fry might well be recording for that one. Still, as member Kevling said it’s interesting that he said “second edition” and not a “sequel”, prompting rumours that LBP could be going down the SingStar route with bonus packs and a “volume two” monicker.
We’ll see soon enough when Fry follows up the tweet.
Mr Fry is now back from the studio and has confirmed he was working on the PSP version. His tweet goes “I’ve come to the end of a lush voice-athon and yes, am empowered to confess that it was for a new PSP version of Little Big Planet.” Whilst many websites knew this already they were under an embargo not to release any details, this obviously doesn’t apply to celebs who like to tweet. Still, it is Stephen Fry so we can forgive him.
