In case you somehow missed the posts littering your Facebook feed right now, it’s Back To The Future Day (#BTTF!). A shiny new level kit for LittleBigPlanet 3 is being released to celebrate it.
Yep, it’s finally October 21, 2015, the day when Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrive from 1985. In the grand spirit of things, the Back to the Future Level Kit includes a hoverboard power-up, as well as costumes from the film.
LittleBigPlanet is a creative platforming game, which lets players build their own levels as well as play levels created by community members.
If you’re part of the LittleBigPlanet creator community, the Level Kit includes some useful items to build your own Back To The Future Levels. There’s a background for Doc Brown’s garage, two music tracks, and a new sound effect object.
The Level Kit also features new materials, stickers, and decorations, as well as Back To The Future objects to fill out your levels. It’s not just a few stickers, either. It’s 127 stickers.
There are also two costume packs: one from Back to the Future’s 1985 setting, and another from the 1885 setting. The former has Marty and Doc, Biff Tannen, and Jennifer Parker for purchase together or separately. Buying them all together gets you a bonus Einstein costume.
The 1885 costume pack includes Clara Clayton, Buford Tannen, and of course Marty and Doc Brown. Again, the bonus costume is for the dogs: Copernicus. The Einstein and Copernicus costumes are for LittleBigPlanet 3’s sock-dog character, Oddsock.
Finally, if you’re not the level-building sort, the Back to the Future Level Kit also has a story level included, in which your characters try to power-up the Delorean and time travel back… to the future.
LittleBigPlanet 3 came out last year for the PlayStation 4. It introduced three new player characters to the LBP world: Swoop the bird, Oddsock the dog, and Toggle the… adorable lumpy thing. Our tech-less mom Meredith Bland tested it out with her kids and she absolutely loved it. In June, developer Sumo Digital released a DLC called The Journey Home, which referenced the first two LittleBigPlanet by Media Molecule.
