Sackboy is ready to take his show on the road. Kinda. The iconic LittleBigPlanet franchise is heading for a new kind of game – a kart-racing title. Called LittleBigPlanet Karting, it will of course feature incredible levels of player customization. Players will be able to not only create their own character to compete in racing competitions, but also tinker around with game rules, settings, customization options, and the tracks themselves.
LittleBigPlanet 2 was supposed to be the game that let players create any kind of game they wanted. So, arguably, if you wanted a customizable LittleBigPlanet kart racing experience, you’d be able to create that already. But not everyone has that much time on their hands, so Media Molecule and development partners United Front Games will be bringing Karting to the PS3 as the next LBP entry. LittleBigPlanet is also making its way to the PlayStation Vita platform as well, so the series is still going strong.
A post on the PlayStation Blog described the new game, saying, “Our goal with LBP Karting has been fairly simple – provide a fast-paced experience that captures the best of classic karting gameplay, married with the unbridled creativity of LBP. This new adventure will be accessible to players of all ages and have all of the variety necessary to satisfy both the hardcore and more casual players.” Further details, including release date information, will be released at a later time.
