While the beta may be over, Sony announced the release date for LittleBigPlanet Karting. In addition to the November 6 release date, Sony announced that LittleBigPlanet Karting will offer a number of pre-order bonuses for retailers. Players who pre-order the game will earn a Kevin Butler Sackboy costume (yes, that Kevin Butler from Sony's game commercials), and the Executive Golf Cart. Europeans, however, will get a special edition of their own when the game launches one day later. United Front Games, the folks that made Modnation Racers, are the ones behind this game, along with franchise creators Media Molecule.
The latest trailer (below) is Olympics-themed, since the summer games are still going on in London. It showcases the variety of activities Sackboy can do besides racing against the opposition with the level creator. Just by playing the beta alone, which you can read up on here, it's obvious that this game is nuch more than just another kart racer. Of course, it's no surprise given the franchise and the developers' familiarity with the Play, Create, Share formula. LittleBigPlanet Karting comes out on October 6 only for the Playstation 3.
