LittleBigPlanet Karting Confirmed
Play. Create. Share. Race.
In a move that would seem to be a self-inflicted nail in the coffin for the struggling Modnation Racers series, LittleBigPlanet Karting was announced today via a typically bouncy trailer. Not that Modnation developers United Front are being let down – they’re leading the project, with help from LittleBigPlanet‘s masters, Media Molecule.
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.
This is an LBP game, so we could never talk about it without mentioning the create tools. LBP Karting is set in an entirely 3D world allowing players to create rich and varied gameplay experiences. Tons of familiar LBP gadgets will be present, along with a brand new toolbox specifically tailored to allow for building in LBP Karting’s 3D world. Along with fan favorite racing and battle modes, players will be able to modify the rules of the game itself to create completely new modes and challenges. All of this is wrapped up in a community experience that should have LBP fans feeling right at home.
Seems like a match made in heaven. Modnation Racers was an intriguing game, but the absence of character never gave it the push into my games collection. So smooshing it together with the irresistibly joyful LittleBigPlanet universe is a rich creative decision and smart business.
LBP Karting is coming out some time in 2012. While you wait, watch the announcement trailer below. If it doesn’t make you even a little happy, you’ve probably lost your soul somewhere.
