In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sackboy: A Big Adventure will launch on the PlayStation 4 alongside the PlayStation 5 version.

PlayStation President and CEO Jim Ryan confirmed the PS4 version will launch the same day as the PS5 version. For those that own the PS4 version and want to upgrade to the PS5 version, you can do so for free, regardless of if it’s the physical or digital version. Other high profile PS5 titles such as Horizon: Forbidden West and Spider-Man: Miles Morales are also getting PS4 versions the same day as their PS5 versions.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure was announced back in June during PlayStation’s Future of Gaming showcase. Rather than the typical 2D perspective of the series, this game is a 3D platformer. Currently, we don’t know any details on the story or if the game lets you create your own levels. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is the latest LittleBigPlanet game since 2014’s LittleBigPlanet 3, which was also developed by Sumo Digital. The series was created by Media Molecule back in 2008 for the PlayStation 3. From there, we got 2011’s LittleBigPlanet 2 and several spin-offs including 2012’s LittleBigPlanet Karting.


After months of speculation, Sony announced the PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12 in some territories and on the 19 in the rest of the world. The disc-based version will cost $499.99 and the digital edition will be $399.99. Among the first-party launch titles include Demon Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. The console is available for preorder now.

In addition to the PS5 price and release date, Final Fantasy XVI and Hogwarts Legacy were among the major game announcements during the showcase. We also got new looks at games like Deathloop, Resident Evil: Village, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Demon Souls.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure will be available on November 12 on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. As more news comes out about the PS5, we’ll be sure to let you know. You can watch the PlayStation 5 showcase below.
