LittleBigPlanet Karting Trailer

on March 25, 2012 5:10 PM

If this is the first time you’ve seen footage of LittleBigPlanet Karting, be warned: it is cuter than ten baby monkeys playing pattycake with eleven baby unicorns. The trailer showcases LBPK’s Kart customization, which is as whimsical as you would expect, and also reveals that the game will utilize split screen local multiplayer for in-house races (though it shows nothing of the sort in its portrayal of the game’s Battle mode).

The combination of each company’s innovative design concepts and strong support of user generated content might well create a Karting adventure to rival Mario Kart itself — if not in terms of tight gameplay, then certainly in terms of longevity and uniquely exploratory player interactions. Check out a garageful of Sackboy’s tricked out cardboard whips for yourself after the break.

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
