First-person LittleBigPlanet mooted

Media Molecule boss hints at future.

Media Molecule co-founder Mark Healey has told Eurogamer his team could make a first-person version of LittleBigPlanet in the future.

The first version of the PlayStation 3 sandbox title, due out this month, is set in a side-on, "2.5D" perspective, but Healey revealed that the creation tools the studio has created could work in a completely different style of game.

"[It would] be great to make first-person games using similar tools, all from the same universe, or..." he told EGTV last week, before quickly reining himself in and adding: "I don't want to say too much, because we've got some very exciting ideas with that stuff."

Asked how he saw the franchise developing in the coming years, he said he hoped it would be "expanded and mutated in many different ways. We've got bucketfuls of ideas of how to expand it, so if we can keep it pumped with blood and people still into it then I can see it going all sorts of directions."

LittleBigPlanet is out exclusively for PlayStation 3 on 24th October. Check out our LittleBigPlanet gamepage for the latest hands-on impressions, videos, screenshots and news, and don't forget that it's also going to be at the Eurogamer Expo later this month.
