The return of Sackboy is one of the big events of this month, and it is so for many reasons. One is that we’re delighted that this intrepid character, one of the most beloved of PlayStation fans, is back in the spotlight after delighting us with his ever-so-exciting stitching moves in LittleBigPlanet 3.
Just the fact that a true video game icon like Sackboy, who has been falling in love for over 12 years thanks to his countless facets and tireless reinvention skills, is back in style is reason enough to be excited.
But the thing is that it doesn’t stop there, and as we didn’t expect less from him, once again Sack is not going to settle for making us enjoy his jumps, his hilarious sense of humor, or his priceless costumes.
The hero, who has no fear of anything, now takes a step further and launches into an adventure that not only promises to provide plenty of fun but also seeks to revolutionize the 3D platform genre thanks to its totally unique approach.
A unique 3D platformer
Of course, one of the keys to this revolution will be the incredible technical possibilities of the PS5 and its amazing DualSense controller, which together with other unique technologies, such as 3D spatial audio or the SSD hard disk, will make the sensations of this promising title even more impressive.
All these new features will combine to make Sackboy: A big adventure is one of the most exciting titles in the PS5 launch line-up – a surefire way to see what the new console can do.
Feel each surface in your hands in a realistic way thanks to the haptic vibration of the DualSense controller, feel the resistance in the adaptive triggers when performing any action, perceive the sound of everything around us in a surprising way, be amazed by the original and colorful graphic section that dazzles you from the first game and leaves you dumbfounded by the immediacy of its loads?
Sackboy: A big adventure will be a real pleasure for the senses, but the best thing of all is that all these innovations will not manage to overshadow its playable proposal, which will already make us enjoy an amazing platform. So even on PS4, Sack and his friends will have plenty of arguments, such as the brilliant level design and the hilarious co-operative mode, to leave us stuck with the controller.
This cooperative mode with up to 4 players at the same time is one of the most powerful features. On both PS4 and PS5, Sackboy: A big adventure will allow you to enjoy your adventure in the company of your friends and family, and believe us when we tell you that if playing alone is going to be great, doing it with others will be a unique experience that will brutally enhance the already fun gameplay.
As a perfect complement to all of the above, Sackboy: A big adventure will be a great 3D platform game, with a huge and varied world full of jumps, puzzles, totally surprising situations, and, of course, laughter, lots of laughter thanks to Sackboy’s priceless sense of humor.
