In every neighborhood there’s always that one house that gives out the best candy, and every trick-or-treater rushes to get there first, before all the other kids have claimed the full size Snickers bars or King Size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. (Screw all those mini candy bars!) This Halloween, in the video game neighborhood, Double Fine and Midnight City are the owners of the house with the best treats. Better yet, there is no supply limitation in this age of digital downloads.

You do need to own a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 to get these goodies, though.

Following the October 28th PlayStation console launch of Costume Quest 2, LittleBigPlanet‘s loveable burlap mascot, Sackboy, will be added to the game in a free post-launch update. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Sackboy will be playable in time for Halloween. A specific release date for the DLC hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the press release announcement uses the phrase “in the coming weeks” to give an idea of release timing.

Sackboy will appear as a hidden bonus costume assembled by finding the four necessary materials–a burlap sack, buttons, thread and a whole lot of love. Sackboy’s DIY costume look is adorable while exploring town, but in combat his ‘Little Big Beat Down’ special attack packs a serious punch.
