Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced plans to release LittleBigPlanet Karting, the newest adventure in the LittleBigPlanet franchise, exclusively for the PlayStation3 (PS3) system.
Scheduled to launch in 2012, LittleBigPlanet Karting will provide fans a new means to Play, Create, Share in the form of a competitive and cooperative karting adventure based in expansive 3D environments.
The franchise that has seen more than six million user-generated levels and games shared online via PlayStation Network is now revving the engine once again as Sackboy returns in a completely new, fast-paced karting campaign to save the Craftworld universe.
In LittleBigPlanet Karting, players can jump into vibrant 3D game worlds with Sackboy for intense classic kart racing and ultra-competitive arena battles. More adventurous karting expeditions are just as accessible, including objective-based missions, boss battles, and mini-games.
On the create side, players can customize their Sackboy, karts, and much more. The new level editor tools will allow players to construct far more than just kart racing games, as they can design their own karting experiences with the ability to make their own game rules, weapons, and tracks that break free from the constraints of a traditional racetrack allowing the imagination to run wild in a completely open environment.
Players will also be fully able to share this content with others around the world through PlayStation Network providing access to what promises to be millions of LittleBigPlanet Karting experiences created by the community.
Developed by United Front Games, in conjunction with Media Molecule, LittleBigPlanet Karting is a single or multiplayer creative gaming experience that has an ESRB rating of “RP” for Rating Pending.
