Media Molecule has said in the past that a sequel would almost be counterproductive, and with huge updates like this one, it's clear the team wishes to continue to reinvent the original title.
What they're calling the "biggest game update EVER!" will arrive on Monday for all you LBP lovers out there. As revealed in full detail at the game's official site , update 1.21 – also known as "Leerdammer;" it's a kind of cheese, apparently – delivers the new Online Create option, increased profile space, an overhauled saving mechanic that makes everything faster and more fluid, and improved network functionality. The online create feature will let you get all inventive and imaginative with up to three other players and to enhance things even more, they've "rewritten both the way the game handles networking code and the way it finds people for you." Basically, the game looks for people who are closer to your Internet speed and more likely to have a lower ping, which should improve lag and fix other lingering network issues. There's a lot more concerning saving and profile backup and what have you, so make sure you read up on all the enhancements offered by this massive update. The LBP Store is now "a bit easier to navigate," sticker switches have been made more noticeable, Race Gates can be made thin again…it's just huge.
The developers have continued to pay very close attention to LittleBigPlanet ever since it released and not surprisingly, it's a far more complete and full experience than it ever has been before. Who needs a sequel? It feels like we're already playing LBP2!
