Ratchet & Clank Creator Teases LittleBigPlanet Add-On


A recent Twitter update from Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac Games hints at an upcoming R&C-themed add-on for PlayStation 3 exclusive LittleBigPlanet.

“Replies from @mmalex, lbp levells coming, r&c content done, coming soon hopefully, up next for mm, big pack, bigger than mgs even,” reads the update from the @insomniacgames Twitter account.

Despite spelling errors and obvious shorthand, two notable points stand out: “r&c content done” and “up next for mm, big pack, bigger than mgs even.”

The first is somewhat nebulous, as it could theoretically refer to some unknown Ratchet & Clank content for any platform, not necessarily LittleBigPlanet. Since Insomniac has yet to mention that it is working on a new R&C game or any DLC for the last title, this seems a bit unlikely.

Especially considering that second snippet, which is obviously referring to the relatively recently released Metal Gear Solid-themed DLC pack for LBP.

Why would Insomniac mention the LBP’s MGS add-on unless the aforementioned R&C content was also an unannounced LBP addition?

Whereas the Xbox 360 has Halo and the Wii has Mario and all of his cronies, the PlayStation 3 is starved for a recognizable brand to hang its hat on. It seems quite likely that Sony would want to stitch a few of its most loved brands together in a bid to create a makeshift (albeit Frankensteinian) face for the console.

Since LBP has already seen add-ons featuring the PlayStation 3’s other flagship entries (read: Metal Gear Solid and Killzone), would a Ratchet & Clank DLC pack shock anyone?
