Here's some good news on a Friday. Sony announced today that LittleBigPlanet 3 is fully backwards compatible, meaning all of your previously purchased LittleBigPlanet (2008) and LittleBigPlanet 2 (2011) downloadable content will carry forward to LittleBigPlanet 3.

Sony explains on the PlayStation Blog that all LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 level packs and wardrobes will move forward to LittleBigPlanet 3. All you'll need to do is re-download the content from LittleBigPlanet 3's in-game store, and there is no extra cost associated with the process.

In addition your DLC carrying forward to LittleBigPlanet 3, Sony explains that every single item you've collected in the past two games will be imported to LittleBigPlanet 3. This includes every last costume piece, material, object, and music track.

On top of that, if you've created any LittleBigPlanet or LittleBigPlanet 2 levels, these will also move forward to LittleBigPlanet 3. "Best of all, if you have any custom content that you want to transfer from your PS3 to LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4, you can publish levels containing this content in Prize Bubbles so that your Sackboy or Sackgirl can visit these levels to pick your goodies up for your latest creations on PS4," Sony explained.

A full set of instructions that explain the importing process, in detail, will be published on the LittleBigPlanet 3 website ahead of launch.

LittleBigPlanet 3 launches for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on November 18. Unlike LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, which were developed by Media Molecule, outside studio Sumo Digital (Forza Horizon 2) is the team behind LittleBigPlanet 3.
