Halloween is all about the costumes, and this year Double Fine has teamed up with Sony to bring the one and only Sackboy to the Costume Quest universe. Available as a hidden bonus, players must seek out the four pieces to assemble this legendary ensemble. In explore mode, Sackboy is a true DIY masterpiece fashioned from a burlap sack, buttons, thread and a whole lot of love!

During combat Sackboy charges up to deliver the ‘Little Big Beat Down,’ proving big pain can come from small packages.
