LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Pick of the Week

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita has been out in the wild for some time now and the user created levels are growing in number exponentially. We are constantly on the lookout for levels that not only show off creativity, but are also very challenging.

Check out our pick-of-the-week after the jump.

While looking through countless levels online, we found one that immediately jumped out at us. We watched this years edition of American Ninja Warrior religiously on G4, and even had a ninja party for the final assault on Mount Midoriyama.

This weeks pick asks one simple question: Do you have what it takes to be the Next LittleBig Ninja Warrior?


The level starts out with the simple, yet deadly, Rokudantobi (六段跳び), known as the Sextuple Step. Don’t get too far ahead of yourself and jump too fast, too far. Touch the water and it’s game over.

Up next is the The Rolling Maruta (ローリング丸太), or the Rolling Log. It looks pretty easy at first glance, but then you’ll find that dismounting without getting wet takes some forethought and timing.

Next up is a an easy, but quick bar grab, The Giant Swing (ジャイアントスイング) . It will propel you forward if you let go at the right time, but you will drop like a rock if you hold on to long.

Up next is a bouncy version of The Ultimate Cliffhanger (クリフハンガー). Instead of hanging on by your fingertips, you’ll be bouncing along from one pad to the next.

The Soritatsu Kabe (そり立つ壁), called the Warped Wall, awaits you next. This may take you several attempts before reaching the top, but don’t give up hope. Hitting the jump button at the proper time is all it takes.

Next along your journey is the Spinning Bridge (スピンブリッジ). This is a series of large balls suspended from the ceiling, and able to spin freely under your feet. They don’t move that easily, so just take your time and you’ll get right through it.

All that’s left now is the climb up to the top. The last obstacle is similar to The Salmon Ladder (サーモンラダー), but without the pole. You’ll have to swing from a rope and land on a ledge. Then you’ll have to jump out and up to the next ledge directly ahead of you. Do this five times and you’ll reach the top.

Reach the top, and you’ll be done. The creativity and the ability of Heat55wade to duplicate obstacles from the real American Ninja Warrior series is rather impressive.

If you have a level that you think lives up this one, drop us an email with the link to the level on and maybe you’ll see your level here next week.
