GC: Mario, Katamari possible in LittleBigPlanet

Mario and Master Chief characters "entirely possible" to make in Sony's LittleBigPlanet, creative director tells CVG

Remember those old concept pics showing Mario, Master Chief and Katamari Damacy in LittleBigPlanet? Well it looks like it's entirely possible to have them in the final game yourself.

"That was just early concept art," creative director Mark Healey informed CVG, "but you can customise your character so much that that's entirely possible." Our LBP character's going to have a nice set of Master Chief armour then...

Healey says that because you can pimp out your character with "stickers" imported from the PS2 hard drive, a character in Mario or Katamari gear is fairly straight forward to put together.

Will this sort of content wind Sony into trouble? Healey says the company is going to rely mostly on the game's community to moderate dodgy content. "It's hugely important," he said, "the first thing I'd do is make a big cock and publish it, but clearly we can't allow that." No we can't, Mark.

Look out for the full interview and our updated impressions of this truly mind-blowing game shortly.
