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.
