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

Mark Wilson's Avatar Posted by

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

Ultra Extreme Modnation Racers to the max!
but on a different note Modnation Racers III is probably the way to go. Tagging the number on the end to me means its not a re-hash of the same game or a portable rip off but a true sequel and new game. good luck and ill be there for the vita on day one.

I’m tired of getting kicked out of lobbies for sideswiping! If you can’t handle being sideswiped then don’t play! No different than shooting weapons. Just poor sportsmanship that’s all that is. I wish they would get rid of that “kick player” option due to the fact that the host misuse it often.

sionllj said:

August 14th, 1:24 pm

The name should be ModNation Racers Tango because Vita is a Latin word and Tango is the Latin word for Touch.

I think “Modnation: Live to race” would be good.
Or “Modnation: Life in the fast lane.”
Maybe, “Modnation: Born on the track.”
Perhaps “Modnation: Oil in the veins.” ? Just a couple thoughts…

ModNation Vita; cut out the racers and just add the branding. or go with the translated form ModNation Life. I think at this point, those who buy it will know that it’s a racing game with a level creation element, you as a company have done a great job branding this game.

I think my favorite would be ModNation Racers: Vita. Simple, to the point, and people get it.

On second thought, my humble addition is ModNation Racers: Touch ‘n Go!

Friday said:

August 16th, 8:52 pm

Yeah, definitely Touch ‘n Go.
I think it just rolls off the tongue, including both the touch option available to use and the idea of portability.
Thanks for the consideration if you guys see this! Love the game!

They should name the new Modnations game: Modnation Racers Grudge Match. There most recent trailer showed some cool new weapons as well is some nice tricks when you do your jumps.

El mejor nombre que se le podría poner es el Little big planet: Crazy racer.

I’m almost certain that I’m too late, but hey, it’s worth a shot, so here’s my suggestion…

ModNation United – Short, simple and straight-to-the-point; “ModNation United” reflects ModNation Racers on PS Vita perfectly, specifically as a social game. Here are few points, to show you what I mean.

• UNITED as games:
All PS3 user creations will be available on day one for the Vita, bringing both games together as one.
• UNITED as players:
With the Vita’s 3G capabilities, players can all come together almost anywhere, at any time.
• “UNITED” sounds cool:
“United” makes for a perfect replacement for “Racers” – it’s short, it’s simple, and it sounds good.

I can’t wait to return to the fantastic world of ModNation Racers on PlayStation Vita!

Is it too late to suggest a name now that you have a compiled list sine August 22?

How about Modnation: Hands-on (Speaks for the game and the handheld itself)
