Fully fledged DLC with new games and new trophies as you play as some of Marvel’s heroes!

Tarsier Studios tolday told us that new DLC will be arriving next week on the store for Little Big Planet. They told us (via their blog):

The Marvel – Arcade Pack contains three fantastic new games, each of which will challenge you in very different ways.

In Hero Rush, team up with three of your favourite Marvel heroes – such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Thor – and try to survive for as long as you can. Shoot for highscore heroics by avoiding plasma beams, rockets, and all sorts of obstacular trickery. Of course, obstacular isn’t a real word, but you should never let a dictionary get in the way of your thrilling Marvel heroics!

In the mind-bending puzzler Avengers: Ultimate Escape guide several Marvel heroes, including Hulk, Captain America and many more, through a deadly maze. The cool thing about this game is that the challenges you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

And last, but by no means least, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. – Interceptor! Take control of the Quinjet and blast your way through wave after wave of the invading Chitauri hordes. Don’t forget to pick up coins along the way to unlock new weapons in The Vault..

Of course, it wouldn’t be a LittleBigPlanet level pack without a whole host of new create assets to play with and bring your own creations to life! By collecting coins in the arcade games, you can unlock over a hundred new stickers, dozens of decorations, sound effects, and three new interactive music tracks.

Whilst I was there I asked if there would be new trophies, and Simon from Tarsier confirmed that there would be. If you don’t have the costumes then your Sackboy will still get to wear the Hero outfits, but only in the DLC. But then you could just buy the costume packs and if you are a die-hard marvel fan you probably have.

The DLC will be out next week and will cost £3.99/€4.99. I needed an excuse to play this some more and this could be it. What do you think?
