The Japanese servers for the entire LittleBigPlanet game series – that’s the original, LBP2, LBP3, LBP Karting, Portable & Vita – are being shut down on July 31, it’s been announced.
The news comes via a series of Service Update posts on the Japanese PlayStation website. One might perhaps understand the reason to kill the servers for the PS3, and the portable titles, but a particular oddity here is the inclusion of PlayStation 4’s LittleBigPlanet 3, a game which only launched in December 2014.
The shut down means you’ll no longer be able to share levels, or play those created by other users – the series’ biggest selling point. Nothing’s been announced regarding closure of the NA and EU servers.
