Sony has today officially announced plans to release LittleBigPlanet Karting for the PlayStation 3 later this year.
Set in the LBP universe, LBP Karting will give players the ability to share, create and play in a competitive and co-op karting 3D adventure.
In the game, Sackboy returns to try and save the Craftworld universe in objective-based missions, boss battles, mini-games and more.
