If rumors swirling around the Internet are to be believed, a LittleBigPlanet kart racer is coming to PlayStation 3.
Sites such as Eurogamer are reporting that the game was announced at Sony's Destination PlayStation retailer event, citing a Tweet from Canada-based retailer FutureShop. The Tweet says that the game was announced at the event, and will be compatible with both 3D and some sort of PlayStation Move-based steering wheel peripheral that we don't yet know anything about.
Assuming the game is real, the question now is who's developing it? LittleBigPlanet's home studio, UK-based Media Molecule, went on-record saying that they wanted to do something different. Did they mean they didn't want to deal with Sackboy at all anymore, or did they mean that they wanted to do something else with their PlayStation icon?
We've reached out to Sony for official comment and will update this story as we hear more.
