SackBoy, of LittleBigPlanet fame, returns in an all-new, endless running game for PlayStation Vita and mobile devices called Run SackBoy! Run!

A post on the PlayStation Blog from Tom O'Connor, a Senior Producer at Sony XDev Europe, gives us some info on Run SackBoy! Run!, which will be a free-to-play, platform-survival game. Players interested in picking up LittleBigPlanet 3 will be able to earn exclusive costumes through this little game.

The story goes that the Nagtivitron is trying to suck up all the creativity in Craftworld once more. As the intrepid SackBoy, you must use tap and swipe gestures to dash through the Gardens, the Canyons and Avalonia as you run from the giant vacuum. You can grab bubbles along the way and can use them as currency to buy costumes and upgrades. Along with a built-in social feature and scoreboard, you'll find power-ups and a mission ladder system that will give you new objectives every time you play.

Organize your collection in the Sticker Book and rewards as you make your way through Run SackBoy! Run!, which will be released in October for PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android. Check out the screens below to get more of a taste for the endless runner.
