PlayStation mascot Sackboy is getting ready to don his driving gloves for LittleBigPlanet Karting, whose latest trailer shows a story behind all those high-speed hijinks.
As it turns out, it looks like the only way to stop the greedy horde from stealing Craftworld's materials is to beat them to the finish line -- with a little help from a power-up or two along the way.
LittleBigPlanet Karting is a bit of a departure from the LBP franchise's usual platforming approach but the second driving game for co-developer United Front Games after ModNation Racers.
That said, LittleBigPlanet Karting will allow players to create and share their own tracks online, just as the previous LBP and ModNation games have done.
It'll be joining a couple of other arcade racers in an end of year rush: LBP Karting gets its start on PlayStation 3 the week of November 6; Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed arrives the week of November 16 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and shortly after on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita; Codemasters' spin-off F1 Race Stars is also tracking for a mid-November release.
