Sony have dabbled with mobile games to promote their big IPs before, with a companion endless runner for Ratchet and Clank: Nexus as well as PlayStation All-Stars Island, which went a bit too heavy on the soft drinks promotions.
Now, Run Sackboy! Run! is heading to iOS and Android devices as well as PS Vita as a free-to-play game. You’ll use swipe and tap gestures, as expected, to run your way through the world and escape the evil Negativatron.
Your objective is to collect as many bubbles as possible while speeding through the world, and then you can buy upgrades and costumes for higher score multipliers. You’ll also be able to collect costumes for use in LittleBigPlanet 3 when it heads to PS3 and PS4 later this year.
Sounds quite fun, and it’s nice to see it actually coming to Vita. The game will be available to download in October.
