LittleBigPlanet Karting 'Summer Sports' trailer and release date revealed

In the new trailer for Sony's upcoming kart racer, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Sackboy and the gang get together to compete in non-sports like Slap Judo, the cake hurdles, and the grapple jump. Okay, now who has to be the one to tell Sackboy he didn't actually win a gold medal? We're not going to be able to handle the littlebig tears.

The trailer does end up making the game look rather appealing, even if we'll now forever associate LBPK with a crying sackboy. That grapple jump mechanic looks mighty fun, and Media Molecule is a fantastic studio who we trust implicitly to deliver a quality product. They're also partnering with United Front who developed ModNation Racers. Together we're hoping they form a dream team of kart racing perfection.

Sony also announced today that LittleBigPlanet Karting will be drifting into PS3s on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
