5 kart racers that we’d like to see

5 kart racers that we’d like to see

Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.

However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.

AnvilNext showcased in new Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer

Top developers have a lot in common with championship winning F1 teams: they both know the value of a good engine.

The F1 team may have great drivers but this means nothing if they’re sent out in a heavy, unreliable car. Likewise, the most creative game devs will always struggle if they’re asked to work with a shoddy game engine.

This new Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer shows off Ubisoft’s new engine, AnvilNext, and its confident tone suggests they think they have a winner.

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel takes you to Mexico

EA have kept the Army of Two series under wraps since it’s last game, The 40th Day, was released in early 2010 but have today announced that fans will see another game, The Devil’s Cartel, as EA are aiming for it to be on store shelves by March 2013.

Visceral Games, developers of the Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno series’, will be bringing us the game and have taken over from EA Montreal creating it. We have faith that Visceral Games will put a fresh, unique take on it and that it will stand up against the ever-growing list of games coming out early next year.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter partners with Linkin Park

When you think of Medal of Honor and the prestige the series has brought to war veterans since its uprising on PS one, don’t you also think of Linkin Park?
