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

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

Sunday:Cixuanfu by John31269

Kart of the Week:

Well, first of all, I would like to say thanks for another Hot Lap spot! Gotta thank prob_alex for the “Floating Island” technique. It’s really “Floating Platforms” in Cixuanfu, though. The name is Chinese, but here’s how I pronounce it: Shee-Whan-Foo. Hope it helps!

Second of all, the Halloween-esque parts look pretty cool! I only wonder what is coming out next…

Third of all, I was going to suggest the name “ModNation Racers Vita” as well, but that’s basic…

Fourth of all, the Team Track Challenge was fun to participate in! I can’t wait for the next creative event!

And lastly, the TOTW is really fun to play! Congrats, manlius!

Once again, thanks!

3. ModNation Racers: Creative Control
4. ModNation Racers: Evolved
5. ModNation Racers: Global Control

That’s all I can think of. I’m not exactly a professional name picker. :)

PSVITA is a Next Gen Console so a good title would be: NEXTnation Racers – VITA

lisatsunami said:

August 8th, 1:29 pm

Dang, what an active blog! This is more like it. Some suggestions are great. Hurry up with that Vita, my Amazon pre-order is gathering dust.

I don’t want to read 300 posts. Did anybody say ModNation Mayhem?

Genexi2 said:

August 8th, 1:29 pm

Given that it’s mainly a port with a couple extra frills from what I’ve gathered, I can’t see the game being titled any further than something tagged on to imply it’s a revised version of the game, like “Modnation Racers+” or something along that line.

Perhaps a sub-title to emphasize more on the Play Create Share aspect of the game.

The name needs to say that it’s like the PS3 version at home, but available on the go. It’s sort of gotten off the beaten path, so maybe something like:
Modnation Racers: Offtracks
Although, that may be confusing and people think that there’s no tracks in this game. So, on a similar concept, I say:
Modnation Racers: Detour
I like “Detour” since the game has taken a different route from the home TV right into your pocket. You can do a sort of play-on-words with Detour in several ways, for example: Modnation Racers: Detour of the World, Detour being “De/The Tour”

Another idea I had has to do with the word “Shift.” When you think of shift in terms of racing, you’d think of shifting gears, but back to my idea on Detour, shift can also mean a change in direction. Could probably add to the tagline and go back to the international idea and say:
Modnation Racers: Global Shift

That’s all I got for now!

Mod Nation: Global

ItsNymo said:

August 8th, 1:32 pm

Had to edit this out of the last comment being it was too long, but:

I liked the idea of saying that the game’s global in the title being that you can take it anywhere with you, though the obvious title has been mentioned before (like world tour, etc). I also like the idea of having Vita somewhere in the name. This one is kinda silly, but just wanna throw it out there:
Modnation Racers: V.I.T.A (Visiting International Tracks Anywhere)
I’m sure a better acronym can be thought up, but I think it would be fun to have something spell out “VITA”.

I’ll post more when I have any!

alexray1118 said:

August 8th, 1:36 pm

I was thinking either
“ModNation Generations”
“ModNation Racers: Generations”

Because it started off on PS3, and it moved on to PSP, and now its coming to the next “Generation” of portable gaming consoles. So it’s already been around for two “Generations” of gaming consoles, and Vita will be its third!
