Sony has announced that Media Molecule's adorable platformer LittleBigPlanet will receive a variety of trinkets inspired b Kojima Productions' enormously popular stealth-action series Metal Gear Solid next week in the form of the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack.
Media Molecule and Konami have teamed up to deliver the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack which will feature five new story levels, one challenge level, twelve new trophies, and a host of level parts and stickers with a distinctly Metal Gear Solid theme to them (as seen in the featured images in our media panel).
The level pack will also include a new weapon dubbed the Paintinator, which will let Sackboys and girls everywhere experience hours of fun with a paint gun as they traipse through the world of LittleBigPlanet. If you want to experience paintball shenanigans without forking over cash, don't fret, players will still be able to experience the Metal Gear Solid Level Pack by either joining an online host that's playing it, or by playing any of the user-made levels that include any of its content. Though be warned, as stated by SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor on the PlayStationBlog: "you won't be able to keep any objects [you earn playing the Metal Gear Solid levels online if you don't own the pack], but you can have tons of fun just playing."
Currently no price has been announced for this premium content pack.
Other premium MGS themed content will also be coming to the game in the form of the Metal Gear Solid Costume Pack. The costume pack includes outfits for MGS characters: Solid Snake, Raiden, Meryl and Screaming Mantis, which players can purchase in a bundle for USD $5.99 or purchase separately for USD $1.99.
Both the Metal Gear Solid Costume Pack and Metal Gear Solid Level Pack will be available from the PlayStation Store this coming Tuesday, December 23.
