LittleBigPlanet Karting will be available on November 7th, but many fans have been wondering who Sackboy will race against in the game. Sony has revealed more details about the mysterious characters Sackboy will face, but before we can reveal who they are, we need a back story.
Long after Sackboy defeated the Negativitron in LittleBigPlanet 2, visitors from far, far away arrived on Craftworld driving speedy karts, with plans to seek out and steal its most precious prizes. These swarms of otherworldly scavengers became known as The Hoard.
As you might have guessed, The Hoard want all of Craftworld’s prizes for no reason other than to hoard them – they essentially embody the antithesis of Creative Sackartistry. So, the LittleBigPlanet Karting adventure begins with a very distraught Sackboy – distraught because he is forced to watch The Hoard fly past him and steal prizes at speeds greater than he can’t possibly match!
But, Sackboy has always been clever: as one of The Hoard crashes nearby and loses his kart, Sackboy sees his chance! He hops in the vacant kart and begins his journey to drive out The Hoard and return the stolen prizes to Craftworld. Meet The Hoard:
