The UK beta trial for LittleBigPlanet 2 is now gathering some serious steam, with the game’s vibrant community fiddling around with the new systems and putting up the results on YouTube. This is handy for us, as it means we get to put up lots of cool vids, leeching off the hard work of others in order to make our money. Come the revolution, we will be the first up against the wall.

Anyway, what we’ve seen so far bodes very well for the sequel, with some incredibly varied content being made. Below we have a (slightly naff, in fairness) Street Fighter pastiche, a basic first-person-shooter and a scrolling 2D shooter called Zone of the Enders - The Beta Runner, which looks like great fun. Our only concern is that your movements will be restricted to cross-screen scrolling, which limits possibilities somewhat. However we’ve seen enough already to suggest that LittleBigPlanet 2 will be something very special indeed.
