The lights are on
United Front Game's track building in ModNation Racers was directly inspired by the tools behind platformer LittleBigPlanet. It's fitting then, that the studio should meld the two titles by taking on LittleBigPlanet Karting for PS3.
Naturally, because it bears the LittleBigPlanet moniker, a bevy of familiar creation tools will be at your disposal to create both tracks, but also racing modes and challenges within the game. The title also features standard racing and battle arena modes, complete with weapons, power-ups, and environmental items.
LittleBigPlanet Karting comes out sometime in 2012.

Mod Nation Racers always seemed like it was just LBP for racing, so I suppose this is a good move, but it also now seems a bit odd to change gears after spending time/money developing the ModNation franchise. I hope it's good/fun.
So United Front Games is making this? I'm down with that.
Wow, so I was really expecting an unnecessary Modnation repeat, but LBP Karting looks to be extremely unique and charming. I love what you can do in LittleBigPlanet... Now you can do all of that, but with little funny cars! :D
The idea still seems a little redundant to me, but at least it doesn't look like it's ONLY a Modnation Racers clone with a LittleBigPlanet skin. I'll keep my eye on it.
Better come out for Vita at some point, and have cross play multiplayer like Wipeout.
Getting this first day! cant wait to get the battle feeling with kartracing on my ps3 and ofc another game to get more of the LBP universe!
why not make modnation 2
Saw the trailer earlier. I'd buy it.
I am a sucker for LBP so, I will probably pick this up. But it seems Modnation 2 could have been nice also. Would have liked them to refine their format a little.
haha this looks cool
