Run Sackboy! Run! has been announced by Sony XDev Europe today. It's a free to play platform-survival spin-off of the LittleBigPlanet series. It'll be coming to Vita, but the most unexpected bit of this news is that it'll also be available on iOS and Android.

Using taps and swipes, you help Sackboy to run away from the Negativitron across The Gardens, The Canyons, and Avalonia. As you run across Craftworld, you'll want to collect bubbles that can be spent on costumes and upgrades. The costumes don't just look snazzy but also add multipliers to your scores.

Run Sackboy! Run! also has a built-in social feature so you can challenge your friends in the scoreboards, you see. "There's loads of power-ups too, including a Jet Pack, Shield, and Magnet, plus my personal favorite: the Glider," the game's senior producer Tom O'Connor said. "You also have a mission ladder system, meaning there are always new objectives and challenges each time you play."

Sony has built Run Sackboy! Run! alongside LittleBigPlanet 3. Be it no surprise, then, that some of the purchases in the game unlock exclusive costumes for LBP3 (on PS3 and PS4). Run Sackboy! Run! will be coming to Vita, iOS, and Android in October this year.
