Kart racer LittleBigPlanet Karting is certainly a straight-forward racer in the genre, but its track creation features make a difference.

To fans of the franchise, it should come as no surprise that apart from being able to make a highly customizable track to race, the game's creation features also take a page from LittleBigPlanet 2. Much like that game allows you to create levels that are outside the platforming genre, Karting's creation tools let you create more than just races.

Different win scenarios can be selected, rewards assigned for who places where in the race, co-op objectives can be created, you can organize treasure hunts and stunt levels, and of course, all kinds of prize bubbles can be scattered around.

LittleBigPlanet Karting for the PS3 comes out later this year.
