Over at the Playstation Blog, Sony and Media Molecule have announced LittleBigPlanet Karting. Yup, it’s time to put Sackboy into a go-kart, and of course the game lets you customize karts, create tracks and all that jazz.
But…isn’t that what Mod Nation Racers is all about?
Does the Playstation ecosystem really need two “Play, Create and Share” karting titles?
It does look a bit more flexible than MNR (the tools I mean, and I base that on some of the 2D levels we see in that video) and we can hope that load times are a little better, but I can’t help but think the MNR creators are going to feel vaguely betrayed. [Edit: I think I should clarify that I’m referring to the fans who’ve spent so much time learning to create awesome tracks in MNR, not the actual developers of the game, who’re actually working on LBP-K.] I’m not one of them, so maybe I’m just projecting.
Bitch of it is…I’ll dutifully go out and buy LittleBigPlanet Karting when it releases. I cannot resist the Cute of Sackboy.
