Sony have released a trailer and some new details about their upcoming arcade racer LittleBigPlanet Karting.

United Front Games are developers behind this project, which seems logical as they developed the Modnation Racers series which was already seen as the LittleBigPlanet of racers. UFG have said they will be putting as much time and effort into this as they did with Modnation Racers.

 In Super Pokemon Rumble the player controls clockwork Pokémon toys (brought to life by a magical key), battling through various different levels in a top down dungeon crawler-esque fashion. The game adopts a simplistic approach with each of the players Pokémon exploiting one or two attacks against waves of opposing Pokémon. Every toy in the game has a power level which relates the their strength in combat as well as having up to two moves they can use. The opposing Pokemon have a chance of remaining on the battlefield after being defeated for the player to collect. Doing so will grant the player use of that particular Pokémon complete with a randomly assigned move set which more often than not renders them useless.
