Sony has made it clear on several occasions that it wants to expand its presence in the mobile games scene, which will see the company bring some of PlayStation’s biggest franchises to mobile devices. And while the larger PlayStation properties haven’t made the leap just yet, it looks like the company is ready to begin that process with a relatively smaller but still important first step.

It comes with the announcement of ultimate sackboy, a new endless runner that will bring the little big planet franchise and protagonist/mascot Sackboy on mobile. The game will be free when it launches next month, with pre-registrations already open on the Google Play Store.

In ultimate sackboy, players will “face familiar enemies” and “swing through crazy obstacles”, and the endless levels you’ll traverse will include a “variety of handcrafted worlds”. The game will also feature Daily Deuls, one-on-one competitions that will award gold, prizes, and outfits from other contestants.

Talking about that, ultimate sackboy will also allow players to “collect, customize and dress up with thousands of unlockable and upgradeable clothing combinations”, while more outfits and customization options will also be added continuously after launch.

Interesting way, ultimate sackboy is not published by PlayStation. Exient serves as the game’s developer and publisher, with the game having been licensed by Sony.

ultimate sackboy will launch on iOS and Android on February 21. Check out its trailer below.
