On August 18, 2009, it was announced that water would be coming to LittleBigPlanet as part of a future downloadable kit, which turned out to be The Pirates of the Caribbean Level Kit. The announcement was accompanied by a video on the Media Molecule website.

All of the playable characters can swim in water for 30 seconds until they run out of breath and die, or they can use a Scuba Enhancement to stay underwater for an unlimited amount of time. The water will take up all dimensions including unreachable ones, in a similar way as an object using the 3-D layer glitch. There are several tools that have been added for players to control the water; the main tool works like the Global Lighting object, and players will be able to change the height, movement, color, particles, and rising time of the water.

In LittleBigPlanet 2 and onward, water is available in the beginning of the game.
