Media Molecule has posted a LittleBigPlanet update over on the US PS Blog, and it chats a bit about the second phase of the US beta for LBP2, the addition of Bounce Pads, LBP PSP story levels, and more.

Get some highlights below the break.

First off, the second leg of the US beta is slated to kick off next week. It will be a small phase, with invites going to “a special mix of LBP contributors, DLC owners and PlayStation Plus members”, so keep a close eye on your e-mail in case there’s a beta code in it.

More beta phases are “in the works” so if you don’t get in next week, better luck on phase three.

Posted below, you’ll see a video featuring Bounce Pads for LittleBigPlanet 2. It looks rather neat.

On the PSP community side of things, there’s a new project coming called Kindred, which is “a collaborative project that introduces a brand new story level series to the PSP community.” It was developed by Creators over on LBPCentral, and there’s a tease trailer for it below.

Should be enough to get your LBP fix there, if not, head on over to the US PS Blog for extra details.

LBP2 was originally set for release in November, but it’s been moved to January 2011 because, according to Alex Evans, not all PS3s are connected to the internet and capable of receiving a patch.
