LittleBigPlanet Karting On Vita Is A “Logical Place For It To End Up”

[drop2]LittleBigPlanet Karting – which is actually rather brilliant – has only been officially announced for PlayStation 3.

However, in an interview to be published on TheSixthAxis today, Jen Timms, producer on the game, hinted that the PS3 version might not be the only format you can get the game on further down the line.


“You know, it’s a logical place for it to end up but there’s nothing set in stone yet,” said Jen when we asked specifically about a Vita version.

“We’re still so focused on finishing the PS3 version and making that the best it can possibly be.”

“In fact the team are right now wrapping up the last few days before submission and we’re nearly there! It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s so exciting!” she added. The game went through a beta period in the summer, and will hopefully run smoothly once released.

So is there any chance of us getting a portable version?

“Honestly, we’re heads down and focused on [the PS3 submission] right now,” Jen replied, “but like I said there are just so many more places for it to be and it would be great to see it on a handheld, so we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Fingers crossed.

Our full interview with Jen will be published later today.



  1. It wouldn’t make sense if it doesn’t come out on the vita, cause games like this i will only buy on the vita they should have done what the doing with Allstar battle whatever it’s called or sly cooper, but a copy on ps3 & get the vita version free.

    • If it’s not BOBOF I think most will go for just one, £60 ish is too much for both.

  2. It(LBP:Karting) would be brilliant on the PSVita, i am sure of it :P + I just wish the other LBP game(i.e LBP:Vita) would come to the PS3 :( (it looks FUN!!!) :P But i guess it would be impossible to touch your TV screen & even more impossible to touch&press the back of your TV to play it like the PSVita version LoL:D

  3. Thought it was a bit strange that Sony put PSASBR on Vita and not LittleBigPlanet Karting.

  4. Currently enjoining LBP on the Vita so this would be a welcome addition in a few months.

    Would like to see some Cross Play features..
