ModNation Racers: Suggest a Name for the Upcoming PS Vita Game


Mark Wilson's Avatar Posted by on Aug 08, 2011 // Community Specialist, San Diego Studios


If you haven’t heard, we at San Diego Studio are proudly bringing the ModNation franchise to the much anticipated PlayStation Vita and we would like to tap into the brilliant minds that have conceived over two million amazing MNR creations by asking for your input. What do YOU think the title of the upcoming release should be? To help your creativity here are some details about the upcoming game.

  • All PS3 user creations will be available on day one for the vita.
  • Create a track in only seconds by drawing it with your finger.
  • With the power of the back touch you can raise terrain with a simple touch. Likewise the front touch screen allows you to lower terrain in a simple yet powerful manner.
  • The fun of ModNation kart racing remains intact with the advantage of dual analog sticks.

It is a great time for technology and the PS Vita gives you a wealth of tools to work with. And this is only the tip of the iceberg! We have much more exciting information to share with you in the upcoming months, so keep your eyes peeled here on the PlayStation.Blog and

With that, let us know what YOU would name this game. Ask your mom, your dog, your “invisible friend” or just shoot us a title or two of your own and let’s see what happens! Who knows…. if we like it, we just may want to hook you up with some cool ModNation goodies!

Suggestions will only be collected from this blog post. Please leave your suggestions in the comments section below.

This ought to be fun! And now, back to your regularly scheduled ModNation Monday update!

NEW DLC: On The Zombie Bandwagon!

Here zombies, there zombies, everywhere you look zombies! We thought why wait until the “official” zombie holiday in October, so here you go. Let’s see who can create some intentionally frighteningly good tracks with this DLC! The Haunted Parts Pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on August 9th for $4.99. Let the freaks come out at night!


Recent DLC

Oil Stain Mod & Kart is available now in the PlayStation Store! Mod is $.99, Kart is $.99 or both for $1.75


TEAM TRACK CHALLENGE: The Nation That Creates Together Stays Together!
A short while ago we presented a Team Track Challenge to the ModNation community. We randomly placed interested participants together in teams of three with a goal a designing one united track for each team. Teams consisted of MNR “Hall of Famers” and rookie first time track builders to see what they could dream up. We wondered if players could truly PLAY CREATE and SHARE together. Final verdict – YOU’D BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!

Below are five of our favorites that will be showcased in Top Tracks all this week. Do yourself a favor and run a few races with you and your friends. These are truly gems in the ModNation crown. Congrats to ALL the teams on their tracks and the fun they had working together.

Creations of the Week

Track of The Week:
Land of Myths by manlius10a
If someone can make a better track next week or this month, I will be VERY surprised! Players constantly ask me what I look for in a track, this is it! ABSOLUTELY beautiful environment and a great, intense race. I love the little touches like the sunlight angle. At high noon this track would look totally different and this choice makes the colors so rich and saturated, those are the small things that can take a track from a 4 star to a 5 star in my opinion.


Hot Lap Tracks:

Monday:Land of Myths by manlius10a

Tuesday:Invasion: Homeworld by atheistsw

Wednesday:Extinct Civilization by SergioChileno

Thursday:Ripper’s Gardens by ripper171

Friday:Mystery of the Sphinx by marusarusa

Saturday:Star Gate by b-nArmz

How about ModNation Racers United or ModNation Unified? It describes the Unity between PS3 players and PS Vita players as well as a play on United Front Games. Thanks & Happy Modding! ; )

I couldn’t read through 20 pages of title suggestions, but here is my single winning entry:

Modnation Racers: Vita Velocitas

When announced, Sony said ‘Vita’ was latin for ‘Life’, while ‘Velocitas’ is latin for ‘Speed’

When can I collect my prize?

I think the Vita version should be called Modnation Racers: World Tour; Its not to long and it’s not to short. It describes the new addition to the game which is taking it and playing it all over the world, where ever in the world, not just in your house. In my opinion, it fits it very well .

and keep in mind everybody, they cant call it like “on the go” or “portable” because modnation racers was on psp before. and you cant just say “vita” because they might later think of making a 2nd one for the vita.


+ Teflon02 on August 12th, 2011 at 8:57 am said:

My Last Name Post is this:
MNR: Blow Your Arsenal
ModNation Racer 2: Blow Your Arsenal

I have suggestions, these are things that will for suree make MNR vita the handheld racing game. even if u have to add it in later updates:
1. Grand Prix
Why: When You Play A Game With Your Friends, You Don’t Want To Go Back To The Menu After A Race, You Want To Do A Series Of Races Where Players, Can Get Points And Compete For Most Points At The End Of The Series. And Since It’s A Portable Game This Should Be Mandatory For 2 Reasons. You Cant Always Play Online So You Want A Tournament Or Something With More Then The Significance Of Just Winning Races. I Loved SEGA All-Star Racing & Played It Alot More Single Player Wise For This Reason
2. Team Racing
Why: In The Kart Racing Genre, There Should Be Three Main Things In Your Game GP and Team Racing For Multiplayer. Reason Being. Since Atleast Crash Nitro Kart Whether You Liked The Game Or Not, It Has Become More Of A Necessary Add To Kart Racers. It Would Be Really Fun If You Have Like (LETS Just Say 8-player for now) 8 People Playing Ad-Hoc And Everyones Playing A Grand Prix, Everyone Will Get To Play As Teams And Stadegy So More Then Your Game Skill Wins The Race.


+ Teflon02 on August 12th, 2011 at 8:58 am said:

3. Battle Mode
Why: You Have To Admit People Have Demanded It And It Was Ignored To The Extent I Was Aware Of. Kart Racing Games Have Always Had This. This Game Is The Only Big Name Kart Racer Without More Then Just A Simple Race & Time Trial Mode. We Need One (with Standard, Team, King Of The Hill, And Man Hunt)
4. Better XP Racing
Why: The Way It Was For The UnRanked Is Perfect. But The Ranked Sucked. It Should Have Matchmaking And Everyone Picks There Stage Of Preference And It Picks Randomly From The Bunch. (Similar To Mario Kart Wii)


+ Teflon02 on August 12th, 2011 at 8:58 am said:

5. More Cartoony/ Kiddy Look
Why: Really ModNation Racers Was Great But The Mods And ModSpot Looked Nice And Cartoon like Then The Race Stages Look To Real Life. Its A Kart Racer, So Its Just Suppose To Be Goofy Like Biff (Great Character). The Only Theme That Came Out Looking Right Was The Arctic Theme. It Looks Cartoon Like And Reminds Me Of CTR.
6. Just Add Variety To The Game
You Don’t Need To Make Us Have Custom Stages For Battle Mode, The Grand Prix Make Default Ones For The Main Tracks & Have A Option For Custom Ones For Multiplayer Etc. Elimination, Points Race Last Man Standing Races ETC. Please Give Me Something To Show Off. Everyone I Know Likes ModNation For PS3 But I Want People To Love And Embrace It Like Mario Kart And Call It A Real Competitor. Like How LittleBigPlanet Took Over Side Scrollers & Is Only Thing Battling Mario Bros. (well Rayman Origins Is Coming NOV) and Sonic.

modnation racers : open road


+ cocopuf97 on August 12th, 2011 at 9:55 am said:

@Teflon02 i agree with all of that except number 5. i think its alot better to have a more real looking animated game. and i think a battle mode would make it more like mario kart than mnr…


+ dimy93 on August 12th, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

What makes Modnation racers so good is that unique mix between real looking tracks and funny karts and characters that are racing so I’m against number 5 too.


+ Blackhawk709 on August 12th, 2011 at 10:56 am said:

How about “ModNation: Next Step” or “ModNation: Universe”. These might be good titles in some sense. But I guess somebody else has a better idea for the game title.
