Sony XDev Europe has announced that a new handheld platforming adventure game titled Run SackBoy! Run! was under development now exclusively for PS Vita, iOS and Android and set to come out in October 2014.
Run SackBoy! Run! is described as a “platform-survival” game where players control the Sackboy to run away from a nasty vacuum cleaner The Negativitron in high speed evading danger for as long as possible.
It is an auto runner set in the iconic worlds from the LittleBigPlanet series including the Gardens, the Canyons and the Avalonia. And it is an endless runner with the familiar mission chain offering tons of objectives and challenges for every run.
In-game courses will be challenging so that players need quick reflex and response to keep SackBoy on the track during high speed. Besides evading danger, players also collect bubbles that scattered all through the way. Using these bubbles, players can purchase upgrades and special costumes that are not only cosmetic but also with built-in score multipliers. What’s more, a variety of power-up items like jet packs, magnet and the glider will play their usual role.
Developed by the LittleBigPlanet production team, Run SackBoy! Run! offers an opportunity for players to win exclusive costumes for LittleBigPlanet 3. Gather the various stickers to make complete collections and you will unlock the special rewards.
Run SackBoy! Run! is scheduled to release on PS Vita, iOS and Android this October.
