In an effort to turn every single Sony property into Sackboy form—hurry up, Blasto Sackboy!—the company has turned the LittleBigPlanet transmogrifier on the PSP tactical rhythm game Patapon. Cross-promotion is just a happy by-product.

Yes, Patapon 2 is coming stateside soon-ish—the official PlayStation blog says it's "in the horizon"—meaning a cyclopian Sackboy interpretation is overdue.

No word on when this guy will ship out to the PlayStation Store, but we're betting it's in advance of Patapon 2's street date.
