LittleBigPlanet Karting Officially Coming Soon

| March 26, 2012 | 1 Comment

I’ve never been one for kart racing games, I absolutely loathed all Mario Kart’s and don’t even get me started on Sonic and Sega Racing. However, there is something about LittleBigPlanet Karting that draws me in. No, it’s not because the adorable Sackboy is put in a drivers seat, and no it’s not because I then get to use an array of weapons to blow his sorry self all over the track – it’s because it still abides by the “play, create, share” LBP formula we all love!

Not just bound by racing, LittleBigPlanet Karting will allow players to use a track editor to create their own insane courses and modify a unique set of rules to suit them. On top of that, there will also be a battle mode, where much like old school Destruction Derby, it’s every man for himself in an all-out survival of the fittest (or who has the bigger gun). Familiar tools such as the grappling hook from LBP will appear in the game, as well as a range of new and exciting things to experiment with.

Despite the luscious 3D world that the game is set to have, whether or not you’ll be able to use that big, expensive 3D television to its full capability is yet to be confirmed. One thing I can tell you for a fact is that LittleBigPlanet Karting will definitely support Playstation Move.

No official release date has to come to light as of yet, but we do know that LittleBigPlanet Karting will be released late this year. We also know that it’s in the capable hands of the same guys who brought us 2010’s Modnation Racers. Let’s just hope they don’t treat us to some more atrocious loading times!
