Sony Unveils LittleBigPlanet Karting for PlayStation 3by Adam Riley on 03/22/12
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced LittleBigPlanet Karting, the newest adventure in the award-winning LittleBigPlanet franchise, exclusively for PlayStation 3. Developed by United Front Games, in conjunction with Media Molecule, LittleBigPlanet 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 Sackboy and Sackgirl 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 the Sony Entertainment 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 LittleBigPlanet 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 Sackboy, 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 the Sony Entertainment Network, providing access to what promises to be millions of LittleBigPlanet Karting experiences created by the community.
LittleBigPlanet Karting is due for release in 2012.
