Free-to-play iOS title Run Sackboy! Run! was announced for PlayStation Vita some time ago, but soon after the announcement, other than a flyer in the retail release of LittleBigPlanet 3 we’d heard nothing about the title, now we have an official release date.

Run Sackboy! Run! will launch in the US on March 31st with the European release following a day later on April 1st, a post on the PlayStation Blog offered more information on the free-to-play title.

Sackboy scampers back to the PS Vita this week with the release of our free-to-play, platform-survival game – Run Sackboy! Run!

Race away from the Negativitron across familiar worlds from LittleBigPlanet and collect as many Bubbles as you can to enable you to purchase special costumes, upgrades and power-ups. You can even challenge your friends using the game’s social features and leaderboards to see who is the top Sackboy or Sackgirl runner!

Filled to the brim with missions to complete and with tons of stickers to collect too, there’s plenty of fun to be had with Run Sackboy! Run! and completing your very own sticker book will also unlock exclusive costumes for LittleBigPlanet 3.

Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be picking up this free-to-play title, and keep checking back on The Vita Lounge for any further updates.

    There’s only one auto runner in ever enjoyed, and that was Jet Pack Joyride. Though, I will give Sackboy a shot (cuz he’s so darn cute!). But I won’t enjoy it! Unless I do.
