So yeah, LittleBigPlanet. Not only is it a franchise but it is also a sensation with a cult like following. The things that fans are able to do with the tools that Media Molecule gives them still blows my mind. Now they are looking to take over the world of kart racing with the newly announced LittleBigPlanet Karting. It is scheduled for release some time this year, so don't worry Sackboy fans, you'll get your fix. It will bring the core elements of Play, Create, and Share for competitive and cooperative racing.

Media Molecule is working with the team from United Front who you all may remember as the ones who brought ModNation Racers to us. There will be objective based missions, boss battles, and mini-games galore for Sackboy to drive his way through. Creators will be able to craft not only races but also their own experiences by tweaking game rules, weapons, and tracks. Of course, this wouldn't be a LBP game without the ability to share your creations on the PlayStation Network

"Since the launch of LittleBigPlanet, our community has provided incredible support, which can be seen in the more than six million levels and games that have been created and shared online through PlayStation Network, a truly wonderful accomplishment," said Guy Longworth, Senior Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SCEA. "Now, we're thrilled to bring PlayStation 3 owners the next Play, Create, Share experience, LittleBigPlanet Karting, a brand new competitive karting adventure that is sure to move this genre forward, providing endless entertainment for fans and newcomers, while resonating with every member of the family, young and old."

If you haven't already, be sure to head over to the PS Blog for the official trailer and a statement from James Grieve, the Senior Producer at United Front. Even though the rumors spoiled this game's unveiling a few weeks ago it is still cool nonetheless to see the thing in motion and know that it is coming sooner than expected.
