It’s inevitable with all “cute” franchises. Eventually, someone’s going to get the idea of making a “kart” game, where familiar characters can get behind the wheel of a race car and (playfully) compete against others through a similar universe, one that’s been in previous games. Mario’s done it countless of times, Crash Bandicoot did it a couple, and several other clones have emerged over the years as well. Joining the fray is LittleBigPlanet Karting, collaboration between Media Molecule and the game’s main developer, United Front Games – the same team behind ModNation Racers. But don’t go dismissing this as just another knock-off. This one has a lot of kick behind it.
