Sony’s hugely impressive European Vita launch line-up appears to be missing at least one key title – LittleBigPlanet, and it’s not the only one.
The Double Eleven developed title has been seen multiple times since the announcement, and we’ve played it on a few occasions and been hugely impressed at the production level.[videoyoutube]However, it looks like it won’t be coming out for launch, having been left off SCEE’s list, which was bolstered this evening with news of a new RC-themed Motorstorm and a new third person shooter from Zipper.
Of course, it was never locked down as a launch game but perhaps because we’d already seen so much of it, we just assumed that it would have made the first round of games. As it stands, sadly, this isn’t the case.
Also missing out on a day one release is Super Stardust, Housemarque’s outstanding shooter will also have to sit, for now, with a 2012 window rather than anything specific.
We can’t be too disappointed, though, with Uncharted, WipEout, ModNation Racers, Everybody’s Golf, Unit 13 and now Motorstorm heading up one hell of a system launch, quite possibly the best one we’ve ever seen.
