Regardless of your age, sex, or interest in games, it’s highly likely that you know what Mario Kart is. For example, my girlfriend who rarely even plays video games panicked when someone threw a banana peel on the road while she was driving. If you didn’t catch that reference, we recommend picking up a copy of Mario Kart as soon as possible.
Why are we talking about Mario Kart? We’re talking about Mario Kart because Sony has reportedly announced LittleBigPlanet Cart Racing during a Playstation event today. Along with the game, Sony is also working on a peripheral that will use the Playstation Move to go along with the game.
Very little is known about the game at this point, but having LittleBigPlanet in the name leads us to believe there would be an intense amount of user-created levels/tracks. Sony released Modnation Racers to a lukewarm response when trying to generate a similar style of game, but the LBP name could certainly draw more attention.
What do you think about the announcement of LittleBigPlanet Racing? What kind of features do you hope that the title includes? Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, or discuss LittleBigPlanet Racing in our forums.
UPDATE – More information has since made its way out about the title. The official name of the title has now been confirmed as “LittleBigPlanet Karting”. The game will also be supporting 3D.
