You heard correctly: LittleBigPlanet Karting is finally launching this week!
All of us at United Front Games and Sony San Diego Studio have been hard at work on this game for nearly two years, so we’re very excited to finally see our fans get their hands on Sackboy’s new karting adventure.
In LittleBigPlanet Karting, visitors known as the Hoard have arrived from far, far away on speedy go-karts to seek out and steal Craftworld’s most precious prizes. Now it’s up to you to hop in a kart, beat back these otherworldly invaders, and reclaim Craftworld once and for all!
So, you’ve raced your friends on Facebook and you’ve had a wander around the sacktastic Home area (not to mention claimed your extra Home rewards of two karts to jump on and drive around the area, two helmets and a rocket companion!)…
But before you finally take the wheel, we have some visual launch goodies to share with you today :)
In celebration of LittleBigPlanet Karting’s launch, first off here’s the (English) TV ad:
Secondly, we have a brand new trailer for you! From an in-depth single player journey, to racing and battling online in the multiplayer mode, to creating and customizing your own levels with an expanded set of unique creation tools, it’s clear that LittleBigPlanet Karting offers players a virtually endless set of gameplay possibilities. And for the first time ever in LittleBigPlanet’s history, Craftworld is now expertly re-created in a stunning 3D world.
Don’t take our word for it though; check out the trailer to see for yourself.
No LittleBigPlanet game is complete without a rare week-one shirt, and LittleBigPlanet Karting is no different! This time around, we’ve opted for a design that celebrates LittleBigPlanet Karting’s Canadian heritage, designed by Karting’s Canadian based developer United Front Games.
This jersey will be available for one week only (starting today) at €4.99, so don’t forget to snag yours before the opportunity is gone for good!
That’s all from us today. We’ll see you all online and we can’t wait to see all of your amazing creations once you start experimenting with all of the create tools.
Without further ado, LittleBigPlanet Karting is available this week across the PAL region (Wednesday 7th November in Europe & South Africa, 8th Australia & New Zealand, 9th UK & Ireland)!
