United Front Games new game, ModNation Racers, is one game I saw at the Sony Press Conference during E3 that had me excited. I have always been a huge Mario Kart fan since the Super Nintendo, and this is one game that could give it a run for its money. ModNation Racers is going to allow users to create and share cars and tracks via the online community. Click Read More to see the trailer.
One thing that struck me about the game, and most people who saw the game I imagine, was the track editor. Just like LittleBigPlanet, you will be able to make your own characters and tracks and share them with the online community. Unlike LittleBigPlanet, making tracks is very, very easy and I think that this is one game that will shine for that reason. I watched as one of the developers of the game selected trees as something he wanted to add to his track, and he literally took the cursor, clicked a button, and trees popped up out of the ground as he moved the cursor alongside the track.
Sony and United Front Games have finally released a full trailer for ModNation Racers and here it is. Hopefully people will really support this game because I personally think this is going to be a sleeper hit for Sony and United Front Games. The game will release exclusively for the PlayStation 3 sometime in 2010.
