The game’s currently in development at United Front Games, the studio who previously brought us Sony’s other PS3 karter ModNation Racers, and will follow the story of Sackboy and Sackgirl who set out on an adventure to save the Craftworld universe.
LBP’s creator Media Molecule is also said to be involved in the game’s development.
There’ll be customisation, of course, with new and “familiar” tools that’ll let players build their own tracks, karts and game modes.
“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,” said SCEE. “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.”
News of LittleBigPlanet Karting’s existence first broke back in February when an image of an advert for the title leaked onto the net.
The game launches exclusively on PlayStation 3 later in the year.
