LittleBigPlanet getting Cart Racing spin-off?

Looks like Sackboy might be throwing in the platforming towel (for a while at least) and trying his hand at cart (kart?) racing.

US online retailer FutureShop has been covering the announcements of a Destination PlayStation event taking place today on Twitter. According to the poster, Sony announced “LittleBigPlanet Cart Racing” at the event. Apparently the game will support the Move controller, complete with a wheel peripheral as well as 3D support.

Seems a little odd to us, but perhaps there’s more to it than meets the eye. Could this be linked the Modnation Racers in any way? And would we be able to use any Sackboy costumes we’ve obtained in previous games?

Hopefully a more official announcement isn’t far off.
