Rumour: LittleBigPlanet Kart Racing Game?

News Rumours Racing Playstation 3 Sony

If a tweet is led to believed, then we can expect another kart racing game, but it won’t be another Modnation Racers. In fact, this kart racer will be set within the Little Big Planet world. This unusual tweet came from Canadian retailer Future Shop during Destination Playstation 2012, which is currently running in Arizona. This is what the tweet said:

@FS_Gamer at #Playstation Destination Little Big Planet Cart racing announced for ps3. Move compatible wheel and 3D capable!

If that wasn’t enough, the claim has more credibility than you might think. Below is a banner ad that shows “Little Big Planet Karting” and it is going to be released on the Playstation 3. It is unknown whether it is fake or not, but, considering the amount of time required to make this banner, surely it can not be a fake.

As one can see, the banner has screenshots and the slogan “Play, Create, Share,” which is usually attached to every Little Big Planet game. However, it does raise one important question: What happens to Modnation Racer? Will it die out or run parallel to another Little Big Planet game? What do you think of the rumour and do you believe it will hurt Modnation Racer? Why don’t you document your thoughts below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
