Oddworld's Abe arrives in LittleBigPlanet April 30

The latest character to be turned into a costume for the LittleBigPlanet games is Abe, star of the Oddworld series of platformers, Sony announced today.

A Sackboy/Sackgirl costume for Abe, who appeared in Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus and Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee, will be available to purchase April 30 for $1.99. Costumes are compatible with Sony's cross-buy program for downloadable content — the same one will work across LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.

Oddworld developer Oddworld Inhabitants is currently working with Just Add Water on the next Oddworld title, a remake of Abe's Oddysee called Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'n Tasty; it is set for release later this year.

In addition, Sony is marking the Cinco de Mayo holiday next week with a free mariachi costume, which will be available May 1.
