This looks like it's going to be a fun game! If it has the gameplay like Mario Kart and the customization of Little Big Planet then the game will be a huge success!
Official Press Release:
On Your Marks, Get Set, Create! with LittleBigPlanetTM Karting
Play, Create, and Share like never before as SackboyTM races onto PlayStation®3
London, 22nd March: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has today announced LittleBigPlanetTM Karting, the newest adventure in the award-winning LittleBigPlanetTM franchise, exclusively for PlayStation®3. Developed by United Front Games, in conjunction with Media Molecule, LittleBigPlanetTM Karting takes the ‘Play, Create, Share' ethos of LittleBigPlanet and brings it to a fast-paced karting game set within an endlessly imaginative world.
Join SackboyTM and SackgirlTM as they make the leap to 3D in a karting adventure to save the Craftworld universe, rendered as beautifully as ever, only now with three dimensions of fun.
Vibrant game worlds will play host to classic karting action as well as a host of other game modes including ultra-competitive arena battles, split screen mode or online via PlayStation®Network, adventurous objective-based missions and even mini-games providing fun for fans and newcomers, young or old.
This would not be LittleBigPlanet without a world of customisation, and LittleBigPlanetTM Karting comes loaded with a range of tools - some familiar and some new - to create levels as unique and varied as the six million user-generated levels that the franchise has already been used to generate.
Creativity is not just limited to designing tracks; players can also make their own game rules that leave the constraints of a traditional karting game back in the starting grid. Combined with the all-new 3D environments, plus the ability to customise SackboyTM, karts, and more.
As ever, the emphasis is as much on sharing as on creation. All user-generated content will be sharable around the world through PlayStation®Network, providing access to what promises to be millions of LittleBigPlanet Karting experiences created by the community.
LittleBigPlanetTM Karting is due for release in 2012 - for more information on the LittleBigPlanet franchise log onto www.littlebigplanet.com
