Although the existence of a LittleBigPlanet kart racer was previously leaked and subsequently confirmed on Twitter by PlayStation last month, it has been revealed today that the game will release later this year. LittleBigPlanet Karting is in development at United Front Games (the studio behind 2010’s ModNation Racers), with LittleBigPlanet creators Media Molecule providing assistance on the project.

The title will allow players to create their own levels along and customise their Sackboy and kart, get to grips with brand new toolboxes made specifically for LittleBigPlanet Karting and will have the ability to modify the rules of the game itself. The new title will feature a range of modes, from traditional multiplayer races and battles to a single-player adventure that appears to be more than living up to the LBP series’ reputation for extreme creativity.

“Our goal with LBP Karting has been fairly simple – provide a fast-paced experience that captures the best of classic Karting gameplay, married with the unbridled creativity of LBP," United Front Games wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “This new adventure will be accessible to players of all ages and have all of the variety necessary to satisfy both the hardcore and more casual players”.
