LittleBigPlanet Update: Sackboy is a Real Racer!

Little Big Planet Update

In this week’s LittleBigPlanet Update, we’re excited to announce the release of the long anticipated Racing Driver Costume and Kart Pack, before whizzing over to the LittleBigPlanet community to check out their latest and greatest creations in the Team Picks.

Racing Driver Costume and Kart Pack
Coming This Week!

LittleBigPlanet Update

A new Kart pulls up to the starting line in LittleBigPlanet Karting this week with the Racing Driver Kart, whilst Sackboy can ensure he’s dressed appropriately for the race in his new Racing Driver Costume.

Both of these can be picked up in the Racing Driver Costume and Kart Pack. Don’t forget that Sackboy’s new Racing Driver Costume can be worn in LittleBigPlanet 2 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, as well! Sackboy’s always ready to race, no matter where he is!

Team Picks

Our LittleBigPlanet 2: Team Picks this week include a wonderfully charming platforming level that sees Sackboy trapped in a bubble and having to float to safety using Sixaxis controls. Whilst things get very retro in Flip, featuring some great gameplay that literally turns everything you know about platforming upside-down.

You can find this level and oh so much more in the latest LittleBigPlanet 2: Team Picks!

We always love to see exciting new LittleBigPlanet levels, so if you have any great levels to share with the community or some stunning videos that show off your favorite levels and creations, then be sure to tweet them to us @LittleBigPlanet.

I like the new pictures you guys added to the weekly LBP update. I mean its been a few months, but I like seeing the picture of a sackboy in a different costume at the end of every update.

    Haha, glad you like them!

    I’ve been doing my best to spread Sackboy’s many fashions around…
    Take a trip to and you will see a whole bunch of them on our homepage and within our news articles! :)

Will the new “Red Racer” costume co-exist with the “Target Red Racer?”
Something along the similar lines of both “Knights of Old packs?”

    You’re spot on there!

    They’re effectively two different packs, so if you were lucky enough to snag the exclusive Target Racer Costume and Kart Pack, you will also be able to purchase the Racing Driver Costume and Kart Pack to add to your popit!

I know you have the garfeild pack, but i think you should expand on that and add more comic like atire. That would be awesome!

The Gone with the Wind pick looks great. Can anyone with a DS controller and the base game play it or do you need one of the DLC packs? I do have the Move pack.

You took too long United Front Gaming. LittleBigKarting is broken and clearly not being fixed.

I refuse to support it any longer.

That new kart is great! LBP Karting is a really fun game, but it seems like it would be a perfect title for Vita. The system needs a great kart racer! ModRacer Nation is a bit disappointing with lack of online. I would buy it day one if it was on Vita!

Hey please help me! I need you to update the gold knights pack to add gold chainmail and to make the gold knights head more dynamic like the silver Not-So-Good knight costume and add texture to the Red Misunderstood Dragon. They need to be fixed please. :(

Speaking of racing costumes.

Think you’ll do karts for the racing related costumes we have already? Like the Motorstorm and Wipeout ones? That would be sweet.

Will the incredibles costume and level pack be back because it will be back at June so its June already?

Any chance you can patch in the ability to turn off Sixaxis controls for Sackboy’s head in LBP Vita?

the incredibles stuff has always been available on Gamestop’s website, if you buy it there they email you a code that you enter in the store and you can download the pack.
