This page details one or more prototype versions of LittleBigPlanet Karting.

So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Hmmm...
To do:
  • Document the sample code prototype from the 2012 LittleBigPlanet Press Kit.
  • Some FMVs were changed for the final game.
  • Document level design changes.

The beta for LittleBigPlanet Karting was sent out to community members in order to test for bugs and gather feedback.

Controllers

Graphics intended for the Controls menu were changed between this build and the final release. While the early DualShock 3 graphic simply has different shading, the early PlayStation Move Racing Wheel graphic appears to be based on a prototype unit, as there are notable differences to the final version.
