Sackboy Coming to ModNation Racers

Published 4 years ago by

ModNation Racers

ModNation Racers is zooming towards its release date, but it would appear there is one more racer showing up late to the starting line — Sackboy.

ModNation Racers hopes to be LittleBigPlanet on wheels, so it’s no surprise to see Sackboy showing up as a playable character.

Not only do you get the lovable little brown-knit character, but you also get his custom cardboard roadster!

Check out pics of the Sackboy player and roadster after the jump:

ModNation Racers meets LittleBigPlanet

LittleBigPlanet’s Sackboy joins some other characters such as God of War‘s Kratos, Uncharted‘s Nathan Drake, and Ratchet and Clank‘s… err Ratchet and Clank, which are available if you pre-order from select retailers.

Sackboy, on the other hand, will be available for a limited amount of time at launch – on specially marked game packages.

You can check out a video of all your favorite characters racing it out in ModNation Racers just below.

In addition to Sackboy, and depending on where you pre-order from, every pre-orderee will receive one of Sony’s title characters – as well as a mystery mod.

The mystery mods come in 4 different flavors: Mouse Trap; Lil Tinker; Cowboy; and Woody. You don’t get to pick which mod you get and can’t even ask your local GameStop employee to give you a specific mod – because you only find out which one you get when you redeem the code on the PSN.

You can check out the new mods in the gallery below!

Mouse Trap is a cat who rides around in a hunk of cheese in order to lure out his next meal.

Lil Tinker is a child who just wanted to race, so he made a crappy soapbox car.

Cowboy is half man, half cow, and half bad-ass. Careful or he'll turn you into ground beef!

Woody is a carefree gopher who just wants to have fun and piss off Bill Murray.

Game Rant is pretty pumped for the ModNation Racer release on May 25th and you should be too… if you have a PS3 of course.

Are you planning on picking up ModNation Racers? Who is your favorite newly revealed mystery mod character?
