A title we reported on as being in development last month has finally been confirmed by Sony. LittleBigPlanet Karting is on it’s way to PlayStation 3’s at some point this year! We have the first screenshots and video direct from Sony inside.

The LBP tagline Play, Create and Share has been translated into a 3D karting game in which Sackboys and Sackgirls get to race against each other in a world created by Media Molecule and enhanced by the players. As always, customisation of just about everything will be available. LittleBigPlanet Karting is being co-developed by Media Molecule and United Front Games of ModRacers fame.

Expect a range of multiplayer modes on or offline as well as a decent single player mode that brings the fun of the platform games to the racing genre. PlayStation Move is also supported but no details on how that will be implemented have surfaced just yet.

LittleBigPlanet Karting will be available this year exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
