It's LittleBigPlanet - on the Vita! We're promised all of the functionality of LBP2 on the PS3, but with both Create and Play modes making use of the unique hardware features of the Vita, such as the touchscreen and the rear touch pad. We can, of course, expect the usual array of developer-created levels in story mode, plus a (hopefully) vibrant community of self-made levels.
While Media Molecule aren't making this (it's been farmed out to some ex-Rockstar guys at newly formed Double11 and those lovely chaps at Tarsier Studios) they are heavily involved are everything we've seen so far means that LBP is looking like a killer title for Vita.
No word on whether Stephen Fry's on board yet...

Of course! Anyone familiar with LBP will know what to expect, but for those who aren't: Upto 4 players on both Community and Story levels, plus the ability to share your own creations with the community. No word on whether you'll be able to create levels online with your friends.
Hard to say at this stage (I don't recall anything between LBP1 and LBP PSP...), but some sharing of custom-make stickers and objects looks possible. I'm not expecting anything along the lines of WipEout 2048's Vita/PS3 online play. Unfortunately.
When's it Out?
No official word yet. But hopefully we'll get some concrete info at E3 in June
