LittleBigPlanet Karting

LittleBigPlanet Karting Announced

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.

  • been there done that *cough* modnation but i do love LBP so im still getting it
  • I remember that when this was first announced, people were angry saying that Sony screwed United Front. Glad to see that is not true.
  • Isn't this a bit close to Mod Nation Racers?
  • Looks like Sony is trying very hard to make Little Big Planet its version of Mario... I wonder when will we finally see some LBP sports game?
  • 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

  • Mod

    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.

  • Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Mod Nation Racers, Little Big Planet Karting.... Why do devs do this? Cash money rich devs fly. Even though they might be "fly" now, they are still morons. Basically they are taking a game on their current system and putting a new finish on it and calling it something else, Nintendo did the same thing with Diddy Kong, and I am a Nintendo fan, as well as PS fan... I just think it is funny how they do this, all in the name of lining their pockets with green paper
  • 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!

  • BOO! ModNation Racers wasn't perfect, but it had a lot of potential - I would rather see a ModNation Racers 2.
  • I couldn't help but smile during this trailer. LittleBigPlanet is just such a great series, and I hope this turns out well. It's just so darn whimsical! Aah, I love it.
  • Mod

    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

  • it's like the fun version of mario cart.
  • I was wondering why this game would be made since ModNation exists, but I could see how it would be different and be more varied and enjoyable.
  • Definitely looks fitting for the series. Little Big Planet is turning into the new Mario.
