A game known as LittleBigPlanet Karting was teased (or leaked, depending on your point of view) over a month ago. This would be Modnation Racers with added Sackboy. And all the wrinkles ironed out for good measure.
Lo and behold we now have official confirmation of LittleBigPlanet Karting. Media Molecule, the company behind the LittleBigPlanet games, has teamed up with United Front Games, the company behind Modnation Racers, to create a mixture of the two. We even have a trailer to enjoy.
This is effectively a driving version of LittleBigPlanet, with all the customization tools carried over to enable players to make their own creations – racers, karts, and tracks no doubt – and share them online.
I love LittleBigPlanet and I enjoyed Modnation Racers (despite certain performance issues) so LittleBigPlanet Karting already has me intrigued. Although no release date has yet been revealed, LittleBigPlanet Karting should be out before the end of 2012.
