E3 2012: LittleBigPlanet Karting and LBP Vita Trailers

I know, some of you think that LBP Karting is putting ModNation Racers on the backburner, but honestly, is that really a bad thing? As much creativity as you could put into ModNation Racers, it didn’t have the type of tools that the LittleBigPlanet series of games had. If you watch the E3 trailer for this, you’ll see how open the creation suite is for this karting game as well. If you’re into those types of racing games, I think you’re really in for a treat with this one. If the creativity of the user base in the platforming titles is anything to go by, I expect to see some ridiculous, over the top, and cool, tracks, karts, and weapons created by people. Remember those relentless shark levels in the first and second LBP? Imagine firing one of those things and watching it chase down that sack creature directly ahead of you. Also, preorders receive the Kevin Butler with Executive Golf Cart DLC for free!

As for LBP Vita, the game takes place in the world of Carnivalia. Of course, there will be Vita-specific tools and controls, which is an awesome way to utilize them. Not only that, but the game looks great. Almost like the original LBP. Level design seems inventive as always and, again, the user generated content will result in some top notch levels. Be sure to check the E3 trailer for that as well.

Also, something that is overlooked, but important in its own right, you’ll be able to do some cross platform play on LBP2 with the Vita and PS3 with the Cross Controller DLC. You can design levels on the PS3 and then switch to the Vita to use platform-specific tools. Even play the levels with one player on a Vita and others on the PS3. Check this out for an article describing an excellent example. Sound familiar?

LittleBigPlanet Karting Officially Announced

Sony has formally announced Little Big Planet Karting for the PS3. While the surprise may have been spoiled a few weeks early when Canadian retailer Future Shop leaked a poster for the game during the PlayStation Destination event, today we get our first look at gameplay for the new title.

In the capable hands of the studio that brought us ModNation Racers, LBPK will feature four player multiplayer, gadgets from previous installments of the platformer plus new ones and a whole lot more. Without revealing too much about the racer developers United Front Games promise that players will be able to “modify the rules of the game itself to create completely new modes and challenges.”

Sackboy takes to the races later this year.
