Gameplay

LittleBigPlanet Karting is a racing game in which players race against a variety of human or computer controlled opponents across various tracks, with the goal to come in first place. Similar to other action kart-racing games, players can pick up weapons and items while racing that grant special abilities. Some of these powerups include homing projectiles, EMPs, grenades, and more.The game will also feature the trademark grappel mechanic featured in previous games.

The game features many of the traditional features associated with LittleBigPlanet. Various gadgets allow players to "bounce, grapple or grab" their way through race tracks. Players can play single-player or race against their friends in online multiplayer or local split-screen mode. The game also features race challenges.

Gameplay modes include Battle Mode, Waypoint Races, Treasure Hunts, Score Attacks, Free Roams and more.
