Yo ho! Yo ho! A Sackboy’s life for me!

If you are a giant fan of pirates and Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet, that you are going to be very happy about a new DLC that will be dropping on December 22nd, 2009. Coming to wreak havoc on Sackboy’s universe will be the Captain Jack Sparrow and gang of Pirates of the Caribbean. The Pirates of the Caribbean Premium Level Kit will include a host of new costumes such as Sparrow, Barbosa, and Will Turner. On top of the new costumes goodness will be new PotC themed maps, trophies, and baddies.

Weigh Anchors and hoist the mainsail, we’re setting sail for the Caribbean. Rumours say that the fearsome Davy Jones and his mighty Kraken have come to LittleBigPlanet to wreak havoc and claim some sack folk to serve as Davy’s Crew. Once again, it’s going to fall to Sackboy to locate the only ship on LittleBigPlanet that has any chance of sending him back to the bottom of the sea.

After looking at the new screenshots and artwork for the new DLC, the new Sackboy costumes look incredibly cute and the integration of the Pirates universe to LBP is quite adorable. It almost feels like a LBP version of Monkey Island. My personal favorite has to be the new Will Turner costume. His little ‘stache and goatee makes him look like V from V for Vendetta. Looking at the screenshots makes me thirsty for some rum.

Hit the jump to see more screenshots, and video, and info about the new DLC!
