Sackboy: A Big Adventure is coming to PS5 on launch day, and it’s looking like a strong candidate for a day one purchase for anyone looking for something more family friendly than Demon’s Souls. A new trailer released over the weekend shows that the game, which spins off from the LittleBigPlanet series, is looking pretty good, even without any level-building.
This is the “story trailer,” so we get a glimpse at Sackboy’s personality, as well as some of the cutscenes you’ll encounter throughout the game. The visual style replicates the feeling of a hand-crafted world (much like Media Molecule’s Tearaway), and the authenticity of the fuzz on Sackboy’s body is an indication of the level of realism the PS5 is capable of.
In the trailer we get a look at some new gameplay elements, as Sackboy dodges between obstacles, rolls through a level in a ball, and teleports around one level. You can check it out yourself in the video below.
Th game’s two-to-four player multiplayer is shown off in the trailer, too, as multiple players work together to traverse puzzles and platforming challenges towards the end. This has always been a big part of the LittleBigPlanet franchise, so it’s good to see multiplayer back here.
The game is also coming to PS4, if you don’t want to upgrade your PlayStation just yet. There’s a special edition available too, which you can check out in our preorder guide.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure releases on November 12, the same day that the PS5 starts its global rollout.
