Some screenshots of United Front Games’ LittleBigPlanet Karting are posted below courtesy of AGB. Also, Polygon has some gameplay details for you: the LBP grappling hook mechanic returns; a hover chassis is implemented on the cars; it contains quests such as finding hidden items, hide n’ go seek, and waypoint races; it has an eight-player battle area; asynchronous multiplayer for user-made tracks is included; and an expanded Pod will allow players to travel between modes and perform various customization options. You can also turn any in-game object into a weapon or paint one into the game as well as reach out and slap other players in order to stun them. Sounds fun. Game’s out in October on PS3.
