Unlike most Mario Kart-inspired racers, LittleBigPlanet Karting is apparently changing up the formula somewhat. Oh, it'll have LittleBigPlanet's signature adorableness and creative tool set, of course. But it'll also have enemies.

Yes, apparently not everyone is as enamored with Sackboy and Sackgirl as we are. They're called "The Hoard," and they're stockpiling all the treasures in Craftworld, ostensibly because they're selfish and weird.

Just seems like good rainy-day planning to us. They might need all those items if Sony ever turns LittleBigPlanet into an RPG.

Anyway, only Sackboy and Sackgirl—and their go-karts—will be able to stand in the Hoard's way. Are they a welcome addition to the world Media Molecule created?
