Word is revving up that LittleBigPlanet is making a return trip to PlayStation 3 in a form most unexpected — as a cart racer. The news slipped out of North American retailer meeting Destination PlayStation courtesy of Future Shop's Twitter account.

LittleBigPlanet Cart Racing, as we'll call it for now, is said to feature 3D support and compatibility with a new racing wheel built for PlayStation Move. We'll have more information for you as soon as possible, but for now here's that incriminating tweet in full.

@FS_Gamer at #Playstation Destination Little Big Planet Cart racing announced for ps3. Move compatible wheel and 3D capable!

Sackboy has previously made a cameo appearance in ModNation Racers, but if our cloth-eared chum is getting his own permanent licence, where does this leave Sony's existing Play, Create, Share racing series?
