This could be one of the more interesting racing games of 2012 as the customisable world of Little Big Planet comes to racing with Little Big Planet Karting announced for the PlayStation 3.
If you’re not familiar with the franchise, it’s a platformer starring characters Sackboy and Sackgirl and became hugely popular for the wealth of creation tools for user designed levels. And that’s continued by the racing game with a range of existing and new tools for anyone to design tracks – the platform world already has 6 million user-generated levels!
Plus you can make your own game rules for the 3D environments, which can also be shared. But as standard you get classic karting action and a mix of other game modes including arena battles, adventurous objective-based missions and mini-games. Multiplayer options include split-screen gaming along with online modes, and it’s developed by United Front Games in conjunction with LBP creators Media Molecule.
