LittleBigPlanet 3 and Not A Hero are your PlayStation Plus games this February

As we bid a not-so-found farewell to January’s fad diets, failed gym memberships and freezing ground frosts (congrats, if you’re keeping up with the resolutions, by the way!), it’s time once again to welcome in a new month and, as always, a fresh new package of games for PlayStation Plus.

Leading this charge in February, it’s PlayStation’s unofficial mascot and all-round cosplay aficionado Sackboy – and he’s brought some chums…

LittleBigPlanet 3

The mysterious planet Bunkum requires the keen eyes of a master investigator – so why not send someone whose peepers are actually plastic buttons? Yes, loveable craft creation Sackboy is taking on a new adventure and he’s brought some friends along to keep him company.

Building on the super-creative style of series predecessors, outside of the main story campaign you’ll be free to create and edit your own levels using bits and pieces you collect along the way, and then share your creations online.

Check out our forthcoming post on the best user-created levels already out there if you need a little inspiration!

Not A Hero

Right, okay, we know politics is the proverbial blue touch paper of the moment – but bear with us: we’ve got a giant purple time-travelling rabbit here who wants to run for city mayor – he just needs a little help on the campaign trail. Interested?

In bold contrast to the family-friendly environs of LBP’s Imagisphere, Not A Hero enjoins you to aid the foul-mouthed BunnyLord in a campaign of unprecedented violence, irresponsible use of explosives and general disregard for due process.

A lightning-fast side-scrolling shoot ’em up featuring an absolute rogues’ gallery of playable characters, Not A Hero is unlike anything you’ve played before. It thoroughly deserves your patronage when it hits the service on 7th February.

On top of these two delightful gems, PS4 players will also net a couple of extra nuggets of gold via the magic of Cross-Buy: Starwhal, which will be coming to PS3 can also be downloaded on PS4, along with Ninja Senki DX and TorqueL from PS Vita’s selection.

Here’s the full line-up, available to download on 7th February:

  • LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4)
  • Not a Hero (PS4)
  • Starwhal (PS3, Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Anna: Extended Edition (PS3)
  • Ninja Senki DX (PS Vita, Cross Buy with PS4)
  • TorqueL (PS Vita, Cross Buy with PS4)

Last call for January

February’s titles will be available to download on PlayStation Store from 7th February (next Tuesday), until then, you still have a chance to grab any titles you might have missed from January:
